IPL 2019: MI vs KXIP Key Fantasy Picks and Tips

By Rakesh Mansukhlal

IPL 2019 Match 24, Wankhede, Mumbai…

This is the third match at this venue. This pitch is a beauty for batsmen so pick more batsmen and pacers in your team

For spinners, it is difficult to get help on this pitch. The first match on this ground (DC vs MI where DC beat MI by 37 runs thanks to good hitting by Pant and Ingram), the pacers got almost all wickets. In the second, MI beat CSK thanks to Suryakumar Yadav and Pandya brothers, where Hardik hit a quick fire 25 off eight balls, with 3 wickets with the ball.

Players to watch for MI:

Quinton de Kock: He played well vs KXIP in Mohali in IPL 2019, and has to improve his performance otherwise Evis Lewis can be called to replace him. I think MI will give him one more game at least.

Kieron Pollard: If Mumbai lose early wickets, he can handle middle order. He and Hardik can give good total for MI, as he also in good nick.

Hardik Pandya: If he gets at least 2-3 overs to bat, he can demolish opposition bowlers all over the park. He is also a good bowler and fielder. He is a fine choice for captain.

MI vs KXIP Key Fantasy Picks – Hardik Pandya is in fine form.

Jason Behendorff: He is tall, and if he bowls good line and length he can make inroads in the opposite batting line up. He is a fine bowler in the powerplay.

Alzarri Joseph: His first home game. There will be lots of expectations on him after his amazing 6/12 last game.

Ishan Kishan: He is a trump card for you if Mumbai lose openers early. He can bat at brisk pace, and has talent as we saw last year. With his ability it is just a matter of time – he can solve problems for MI unpredictable middle order…

Players to watch for KXIP:

This team team is in good shape. They have won four out of six matches, led by R Ashwin. They beat SRH in last encounter by 6 wickets thanks to a cool and composed innings by KL Rahul, which he can look to do it again in today’s match.

KL Rahul: He has played good cricket in IPL 2019, scoring three fifties in his last four knocks. He is composed and hungry for runs, determined not to give his wicket away. He can play through the innings and win for KXIP.

MI vs KXIP Key Fantasy Picks – KL Rahul is rediscovering his form.

Mayank Agarwal: This IPL has been good for him compared to the last one. Once he gets through the early hurdles, he is a dangerous player, especially with Gayle or Rahul to look after him.

David Miller: This pitch suits David Miller if KXIP lose early wickets. He can handle middle order and hit in well in the death overs. He has to deliver with Moises Henriques now available for KXIP.

R Ashwin: He is the captain and has bowled well this year. He is difficult to score as he has variations in his bowling. If KXIP bowl second, he and his spinners will be difficult to bat against.

Sarfaraz Khan: Surprise package of this IPL. He has looked good… Keep an eye on him for value, as he just needs to improve his strike rate and running..

In the end, lots depends of the toss. There is Kishan, Pollard and Miller who can take match in your favour. Best of luck!
