The IPL 2019 is becoming even more interesting as the race to play-offs gets intense.
The match number 32 would be between Kings XI Punjab and former champions Rajasthan Royals at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday.
As KXIP look to seal a spot in the top-four, Rajasthan eye a win to stand a chance for the knock-outs.
Here we present the Dream11.
KL Rahul: A reliable wicket-keeper batsman
Starting with the wicket-keeping department, it is a no brainer that KL Rahul makes the cut.
He has been in splendid form with the bat of late, and there is zero doubt that Rahul can extract a bagful of points for Dream11 fans.
While he failed to fire in the last match, this is a home tie, which would make things easier for him.
Sarfaraz Khan, Jos Buttler form a top batting line-up
It makes sense to have five batsmen in the XI. We have selected Jos Buttler as an opener. He has been in a phenomenal form in IPL 12.
He would be supported by Ajinkya Rahane and Steve Smith, who can anchor the innings.
From KXIP, Mandeep Singh is likely to step up, along with Sarfaraz Khan.
Khan is enjoying a fine form, this term.
Ravichandran Ashwin and Sam Curran are the all-rounders
The all-rounder list is set to consist of two of the prominent all-rounders from KXIP.
Ravichandran Ashwin has been dominating with the ball, while he can also bat if needed.
Sam Curran, meanwhile, has been making an impact in all the departments.
He can be the trump card in this XI when it comes to changing the complexion of the match at the death.
Mohammed Shami, Jofra Archer form a deadly bowling pair
Considering the bowling attack, the attack starts with the deadly seam bowling of Mohammed Shami. He can terrorize any batting order in the tournament.
It continues with Shreyas Gopal, who has turned out to be Rajasthan's main weapon in the spin department. He would aim to make an impact again.
The last name in this XI is Jofra Archer, who has been lethal.
Rahul the captain, Buttler his deputy
The selection of leaders in this XI does not involve much of a headache.
Rahul qualifies as the man to take up the role of a captain, considering his consistent form. Being a wicket-keeper will surely help him earn extra points.
As for his deputy, Buttler is the ideal man since he is known to give the perfect start.
