CSK vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction Captain Pick: Andre Russell
There's not many who would question the impact that Andre Russell brings to a T20 game and he has been one of KKR's best players over the years. This time in the UAE, Russell did not have a hit with the willow yet but has performed well with the ball whenever his captain has needed him. Also he is very good in the field and once again, he would be a very important asset for the Knights.
