Andre Russell
Sunil Narine
Tim Southee
Umesh Yadav
Shivam Mavi
Varun Chakravarthy

  • A Russell struggled with his fitness last game which  meant KKR had to go their 6th bowling option V Iyer at the death. So, they’re likely to add to their bowling depth by bringing in S Mavi for S Jackson.
  • V Iyer, S Iyer and A Russell are their key batters and S Narine and V Chakravarthy will be their key bowlers in this fixture.
  • Sam Billings will keep the wickets for KKR if Jackson isn’t in the playing eleven.

The new KKR skipper has been in outstanding form in recent times and would look to score high for his new franchise.

Varun Chakravarthy Stats in T20

The mystery spinner struggled for control last game but still ended with figures of 1/33. Expect him to dominate PBKS batters.
