11. Shivam Mavi

Shivam Mavi would be looking to up his game having managed just four scalps from five outings this season.

10. Umesh Yadav

Umesh Yadav has been KKR’s most consistent bowler so far. Even though the senior pacer has gone wicketless on a couple of occasions, he has registered 15 wickets and is one of the strong contenders in the Purple Cap list.

9. Tim Southee

Tim Southee has also been really impressive with the ball in hand with 10 wickets from five appearances so far.

8. Anukul Roy

Anukul Roy has not managed to create an impression with the bat but he did manage to make his presence felt with the ball in hand against the Royals as he accounted for Karun Nair and finished his quota with figures of 1/28.

7. Andre Russell

Andre Russell is a proven match-winner and Kolkata’s backbone. He can change the course of the game with a whirlwind knock in the middle and death overs and can also deceive the best batters with his well-disguised yorkers.

6. Nitish Rana

Nitish Rana has been the most consistent performer with the bat for KKR in the last two games and in fact, added finishing touches in the last game with an unbeaten 37-ball 48.

5. Rinku Singh 

Rinku Singh was the Man of the Match against Rajasthan for his quickfire knock of 42 runs from 23 deliveries.

4. Shreyas Iyer (c)

Skipper Shreyas Iyer has blown hot and cold this tournament but he has been amongst the runs so far this season. He has amassed 324 runs from 10 matches including two half-centuries with his highest score being 85.

3. Baba Indrajith (wk)

Baba Indrajith could only manage 15 runs against RR and would be hungry to score big when he takes on the Lucknow Super Giants bowling attack.

2. Aaron Finch

Barring a half-century, Australian limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch has failed to make any impression on the 22 yards. He was sent back for just four runs to his name in the last game against Rajasthan Royals.

1. Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine is trying his level best with the ball in hand by bamboozling the batters but, when it comes to batting, the southpaw has not clicked so far and the move of promoting him as a pinch-hitter has not yielded any results either.
