Is Aaron Finch worthy of a place in the eleven? Australia’s limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch has been really careless with his shot selections. He has literally thrown his wicket every now and then and this hasn’t gone well with the team. Whether Finch will keep his place in the eleven or not still remains a question, but they do have Sam Billings to replace Finch at the top.

No changes in the bowling unit are expected. KKR’s bowling unit looks settled even without the likes of Pat Cummins and Varun Chakravarthy. The team is expected not to tinker with their bowling combination.
