The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League is under the scanner because of the growing COVID-19 threat. Kolkata Knight Riders were the favorites to lift this year’s trophy as the Shahrukh Khan-owned franchise had done a terrific job in IPL Auction 2020. While there is no official confirmation about the start date of IPL 2020, it is likely that it will start somewhere around 20th April.
Kolkata Knight Riders have won the trophy two times and will look to add another trophy to their cabinet this year. Dinesh Karthik has been assigned the captaincy of the team which has a plethora of overseas stars. Talking about fantasy cricket now, Kolkata will be one of the favorite teams of fantasy cricket players because there are many game-changers present in their squad. These players can win you a lot of money on fantasy cricket sites and here are the top 3 overseas picks from Kolkata Knight Riders for fantasy cricket in IPL 2020.
The first entry on this list is of the Muscle Man from West Indies, Andre Russell. The right-handed batsman played several match-winning innings for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2019. Unfortunately, his team could not make it to the next round but this year, Russell will try to win more matches for his team and take them all the way to the championship. Russell is a player who bats at number 5, 6 or 7. He takes very little time to get settled and once he gets going, the boundary meter never stops. He is also a fantastic fielder while Russell even bowls 4 overs of right-arm pace which makes him a complete package for the fantasy cricket tips experts.
The fantasy cricket tips Gurus will not advice you to include Harry Gurney in your fantasy team but he is a player who can pick up 3-4 wickets if he gets going. Gurney had won the Man of the Match award when he made his IPL debut against Rajasthan Royals which shows how talented he is. Although he will not lead the pace attack of the Kolkata-based franchise, he is likely to bowl in the death overs. The batsmen tend to take more risks in the final few overs hence, Gurney can take more wickets. Besides, he is a left-arm bowler so he will get a unique angle to trouble the batsmen.
Another Englishman to feature on this list is the captain of England’s limited overs team, Eoin Morgan. The left-handed batsman will make his return to the Kolkata Knight Riders after a long time as he will look to wreak havoc in Kolkata once again. The English skipper will be a popular choice among the fantasy cricket tips experts because he is a player who deals only in sixes once he starts middling the ball. The fans had seen how he blew away the Afghan bowling attack in the 2019 World Cup match between England and Afghanistan. Expect Morgan to play in the same way for Kolkata Knight Riders in the 13th season of IPL.
