KBFC vs ATKMB Dream11 Team Selection Captain Pick: Roy Krishna
The ATK striker is arguably the league's best pure finisher. Krishna is one of the quickest movers in the middle, and his ability to attack and defensive as per situation makes him a great asset. He even was the highest goal-scorer of ISL 6 with 14 goals and six assets. As there's no reason why the Fiji star can't replicate his heroics this season, he should be named as captain of your Dream11 team.
KBFC vs ATKMB Dream11 Team Selection Vice-Captain Pick: Gary Hooper
ATKMB indeed have one of the strongest defences in the competition. However, their strength will be tested by Gary Hooper. The Englishman is one of the league's most exciting signings and will like to live up to the expectations. He has managed to leave a mark on England and Australian soil and will arguably be the biggest threat for ATK in the opening clash.
