They started the season with a bang by winning 4 out of their 5 games. But, unfortunately, lost their way in the middle.

It has been a roller-coaster ride for Chris Lynn in the tournament. In one game, he is showing his talent for the team to get quick starts and on the other day, losing his way in the middle for a cheap score. He would hope for some luck against SRH.

Narine is getting into his groove for Kolkata franchise. Though he is yet to show his batting heroics, he is delivering those economical spells for the team with his brilliant display of skills.

Nitish Rana:

He has a sensational game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rana showed his class for KKR against RCB. Though he remained unbeaten, the lack of support dented KKR chances.

Robin Uthappa:

He was the real culprit in the last game. None would have expected such a poor knock from a class player like Robin Uthhapa. He got a good record against SRH, which he would like to use.

Shubman Gill:

The young lad got the chance to showcase his skills under the pressure. However, he failed to prove a point. Despite the knock, he might get a chance in the playing XI against SRH.

Dinesh Karthik:

The skipper of the team is yet to come good with the bat for KKR apart from the one knock against Delhi Capitals. As he is aware of the conditions in Hyderabad, he might come into the play sooner than later.

Andre Russell:

Well, he is their consistent player of the tournament and I bet, they can’t afford to lose him at any cost. With the tournament coming into the tough phase, his heroics are needed at any cost for KKR.

The leg-spinner has been brilliant for the team. Surprisingly, they have given him only one over for him. However, the conditions in Hyderabad would suit him better.

Kuldeep Yadav:

He was taken to the cleaners in the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, the pitch will support the spinners in Hyderabad, which would put him in the danger list.

The lanky fast bowler has been brilliant for KKR. He is generating Pace and also got the good slower delivery to deceive the batsman. He would once again be the key.

The young Australia, who has been the late replacement might get the nod for the team. He would replace Harry Gurney, who was pretty ordinary against CSK and RCB in the last couple of matches.

Ratings:

Batting – 9/10

They got one of the dangerous lineups in the tournament. On their day, they can whack out any kind of bowling attack. The form of Andre Russell and Nitish Rana is a pleasing aspect for KKR.

Bowling – 8/10

They got the likes of Narine, Chawla and Kuldeep Yadav in their ranks but unfortunately, they are failing to put a match-winning performance. The fast bowling options also look inexperienced.
