Top Pick – All-Rounder
Andre Russell looked in a hurry in the last 2 matches where he scored 38 runs at a strike rate of 158.33. He needs to find more time in the middle as he is the prominent batter for Knight Riders.
Top Pick – Bowler
Tymal Mills has got excellent variations and difficult to score big runs against him. He bowled an economical spell against Sharjah Warriors, giving away only 11 runs in his 3 overs, and more importantly picked up the wicket of Moeen Ali.

Sam Billings has got a wide range of shots at his disposal. He played a second fiddle for Alex Hales against Sharjah Warriors and scored 49 runs from 38 balls.

With blistering batting performances, Desert Vipers lit up the run-chase against Sharjah Warriors and got home in the end with 20 balls to spare. Alex Hales is extending his dream run in the T20 format and struck an unbeaten 83* runs and fellow Englishmen Sam Billings scored a valuable 49 runs. The bowlers were outstanding and picked up 5 wickets inside 11 overs and later allowed the batters to score runs. Skipper Colin Munro bagged a duck and eyeing a better comeback in this game.
Poor batting display in their first 2 matches cost Abu Dhabi Knight Riders immensely as they lost to Gulf Giants and Dubai Capitals convincingly. In both games, they managed to score 114 runs each which show they struggled entirely as a batting unit. Big guns Andre Russell and Sunil Narine haven’t matched their standards which were one of the biggest reasons for their downfall. Paul Stirling is the only guy who showed more intent with the bat, scoring 74 runs in 2 innings. They are likely to make subtle changes for this match.
