Share

KKR playing 11: After a brilliant one-sided win in their opening future against the reigning champions Chennai Super Kings, the Kolkata Knight Riders will be up against another team from the south, i.e., Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their opening fixture against Punjab Kings and are desperate for a win. The Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders will be a tough team to get past for Challengers as they defeated the reigning champions CSK quite easily. In this post, we have come up with the possible playing XI combination of KKR which they can use against RCB at the DY Patil Stadium on Wednesday evening at 7:30 PM.

Team news

  • Unavailable: Aaron Finch
  • Tim Southee is back in the setup and will be playing this fixture.
  • KKR opted for three overseas players in the last game and did pretty well. However, with Tim Southee back he could come into the eleven for Shivam Mavi.
  • No changes in the batting order are expected with Venkatesh Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane Shreyas Iyer forming the top three.
  • Nitish Rana, Sam Billings, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Sheldon Jackson will form the lower middle order.
  • Tim Southee will boost the bowling lineup of KKR with Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine, and Varun Chakravarthy complimenting him.
