11. Harshit Rana

Harshit Rana can also maintain his place, and has same wickets as of the spinner at a higher economy of 10.20.

10. Pat Cummins

Pat Cummins has given runs at an expensive rate, but can earn a call-up in this game. In four matches, he has picked up four wickets at an economy of 12 and also has 63 runs.

9. Anukul Roy

The spinner Anukul Roy has picked up a single wicket at an economy of 7.83, and is expected to retain his place.

8. Tim Southee

Tim Southee has been costly on few occasions, but has picked wickets in a consistent manner. In six appearances, he has picked up a total of 11 wickets at an economy of 7.71.

7. Sunil Narine

Narine has been disappointing with his batting performance, but the knock of 22 from 12 balls in the last league game would keep him upbeat ahead of this fixture. In eight league matches, he has picked up a total of 11 wickets and scored 49 runs.

6. Andre Russell

Russell has garnered 272 runs in 11 matches and has scalped 12 wickets, and is certainly in good form. In the last outing, he returned with 2/22 and contributed 45 off 19 balls and will look to continue the same form.

5. Nitish Rana

Nitish Rana has been inconsistent with his contribution as well, and has 250 runs in 11 games.

4. Rinku Singh 

Youngster Rinku Singh was impressive in the first fixture, but failed in the subsequent one.

3. Shreyas Iyer (c)

Captain Shreyas Iyer has scored 330 runs in 11 innings at an average of 33, but has not looked at his best. On most occasions, he has failed to convert starts into a big score.

2. Baba Indrajith(WK)

Baba Indrajith has failed to grab the opportunity but can be kept in the team due to his wicket-keeping abilities. In three matches, he has scored only 21 runs at a strike rate of 21, and needs to step-up and get a much-needed flourish in the powerplay overs for KKR.

1. Venkatesh Iyer

Venkatesh and put him in the opening slot. Although he has garnered only 132 runs in nine appearances at an average of 16.50, he can be called back again to fill the boots of Finch, who has been quite ordinary.
