Shivam Mavi has been a bit expensive with the ball, as the youngster has conceded 144 runs in just 14 overs that he has bowled in the four games played so far.
Varun Chakravarthy has also not been in a great form, as compared to the 2021 heroics. He has been struggling to get wickets, and lands up giving away extra runs.
Umesh Yadav has been successful in getting the crucial breakthroughs in the powerplay and will look to perform some similar heroics.
Southee has scalped wight wickets in just three innings, and Yadav has 11 wickets in the eight innings that he has played so far.
Narine, the mystery spinner, has been very impressive with the ball and has been the most economical bowler for his side. He had been opening the innings for his team for the past couple of matches but failed miserably.
Andre Russell’s impressive cameo with the ball in the last over of the match against GT proved to be terrific for KKR as he conceded just five runs scalping four wickets. Be it with the bat, or the ball, the big man looks to shine in the game.
Nitish Rana was also good with the bat in KKR’s previous clash against DC. His partnership with Iyer gave a ray of hope after DC posted 215 runs in the first innings. But he hasn’t been consistent and thus will have to regain his form.
Rinku Singh impressed everyone with the bat when he was brought into the game for the first time. While playing against Gujarat Titans, he played some beautiful shots and hit four fours and a six to add 35 runs in 28 balls before being dismissed.
Shreyas Iyer has played some crucial knocks in the games thus far and led to an almost victory against the Rajasthan Royals. He scored a half-century when he faced DC last, but ended up on a losing side.
Since there have not been any updates on Aaron Finch’s recovery, KKR will have to try Billings on the top order yet again, even after he failed to score in the last game. The wicketkeeper batter has the experience of being in IPL for a long time and can put that to display in order to give his team a strong start.
Ajinkya Rahane’s chances of coming back into the side have increased. Rahane was doing a decent job as the opener and had scored a good knock against CSK in the inaugural game of this season. KKR will look for his experience in the team in order to end their losing streak.
