Kolkata Knight Riders Playing XI Team news

  • Unavailable: Rasikh Salam
  • Rasikh Salam has been ruled out of IPL 2022 due to a lower back injury. Harshit Rana has joined the squad as his replacement.
  • Aman Khan bowled only a solitary over in his debut game against SRH. He is already being used as the sixth bowler which KKR doesn’t actually require. Rinku Singh, Baba Indrajith, or Abhijeet Tomar could come in as specialist batters to strengthen the batting unit of KKR.
  • Pat Cummins is having a terrible season with the ball. However, the price tag and reputation he carries with himself as the Test skipper of Australia, poor Tim Southee will continue to warm the bench despite being in a brilliant bowling form.
  • Varun Chakravarthy’s form has taken a slump this year. It remains interesting to be seen whether he features in the eleven after a sore season so far.
