Has KKR finally found their perfect combination? Kolkata Knight Riders have struggled to form the opening partnership throughout the competition. In their last game against MI, KKR went back to the drawing board by picking up both Ajinkya Rahane & Venkatesh Iyer in the last game. The two men gave KKR a decent start and it seems like the team management will stick with Rahane and Venkatesh at the top.

Pat Cummins not available for the remainder of IPL. Aussies Test captain Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the remainder of the season due to a hip injury. If Umesh Yadav is fit he will replace Cummins in the eleven.
