Kolkata Knight Riders’ Predicted Playing XI:

The Australian swashbuckling batsman Chris Lynn hasn’t been that consistent for the team. However, he would get one more go in the playing XI, as he can turn things in a quick time if present at the crease.

2. Sunil Narine:

They tried a different combination in the last game, which didn’t work in the team favour. They might ask Narine to open the innings in order to whack those balls in powerplay overs,

3. 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. But, he failed to repeat against RR.

4. Robin Uthappa:

He has always been a class apart. But, he finds himself in a soup for his poor strokes even after getting himself into contention for a man of the match trophy. The game against RCB was a nightmare for him. He might replace Rinku Singh for this clash.

5. Shubman Gill:

The young Gill has been brilliant for KKR. He has become a good floater for the team during the tough phases. In every position, he has delivered the required goods for the team.

6. Dinesh Karthik:

Gill has skill to stay calm under pressure: Karthik

What an incredible night Dinesh Karthik had against Rajasthan Royals? The flamboyant batsman has shown his capability of playing under the pressure. Unfortunately, his captaincy is being questioned.

7. Andre Russell:

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.

8. Piyush Chawla:

The leg-spinner is coming good for the team in every match. He is showing his class whenever the team required a wicket. Dinesh Karthik is using him to perfection.

9. Harry Gurney:

Harry Gurney made an impressive debut for the team. However, surprisingly, he lost his place in the last few games. Most probably, he would be back in the side for Mumbai clash.

10. Prasidh Krishna:

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.

11. Kuldeep Yadav:

Yadav hasn’t made much impact in the tournament so far. He just has thrown the ball pretty ordinarily, which saw DK to rely on other bowlers. He would replace Prithvi.


Batting – 8.5/10:

They got the blistering lineup in their kitty. But, unfortunately, they are losing their way in the middle. They hope for a good show against Mumbai Indians,.

Bowling – 7.5/10:

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.
