11. Lockie Ferguson
Lockie Ferguson bowled two good overs in the previous match, picking up crucial wickets of the oppositions’ openers. But he didn’t bowl in the rest of the match, presumably due to a niggle.
10. Varun Chakravarthy
Varun Chakravarthy, on the other hand, was effective conceding only 24 runs from four overs.
9. Prasidh Krishna
Sandeep Warrier replaced Prasidh Krishna in the previous match and bowled just two overs. He didn’t concede a lot of runs but Morgan didn’t give him the ball later in the innings.
8. Andre Russell
Andre Russell’s injury saw Tim Southee make his debut for KKR, but we can assure you that if the West Indian is anywhere near full fitness, the team management will go for him.
7. Sunil Narine
Sunil Narine played the role which KKR would have wanted Russell to play with the bat. He scored a quickfire 21 runs from 10 balls which helped KKR’s chase.
6. Dinesh Karthik (WK)
Dinesh Karthik did his part with 12 runs in the previous match, but his role with the bat increases if Andre Russell misses out.
5. Eoin Morgan (C)
Eoin Morgan’s form is becoming more and more of a concern for the KKR team moving forward. He has now made 7, 8, and 0 in the three innings in the UAE. It is high time that he starts scoring runs.
4. Rahul Tripathi
Rahul Tripathi didn’t pass the double-digit mark, but he looked good for his cameo of nine runs.
3. Nitish Rana
Nitish Rana’s knock was a big positive for KKR as he bats in a crucial position and might actually be handy in a crunch match. He made 36 runs from 27 balls and helped his team to get past the target.
2. Shubham Gill
Shubman Gill did get off to another good start in the previous match, scoring 30 runs. He would be disappointed with the way he got out, but it seems that a big score is along the way.
1. Venkatesh Iyer
Venkatesh Iyer has been a surprise package but it seems that he has something different to offer every time he plays. In the previous match, he didn’t really get a big score but he contributed with the ball.
