3. Virat Kohli
Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has got some valuable starts in both the games so far in IPL 2021 but he is yet to convert them into a big knock. However, this could well be the big moment for Kohli in this edition of the IPL as he has a fantastic record against Kolkata Knight Riders in the tournament history. In 23 matches, Kohli has amassed a total of 725 runs at an average of 40.3 that includes 5 fifties and 1 hundred.

4. Andre Russell
Kolkata Knight Riders big-hitting all-rounder Andre Russell is yet to fire with the bat this season but he has been superb with the ball in both the matches. Russell recorded his career-best IPL figures in the last match against Mumbai Indians taking his maiden five-wicket haul and gave away just 15 runs. He also bowled impressively well against Hyderabad at the death to power KKR to an amazing win. If he can regain his sensational abilities with the bat, Russell could be unstoppable in this IPL.

5. Harshal Patel

In the season opener, Harshal became the first-ever bowler to pick up a five-wicket haul against the Mumbai Indians where he recorded stunning figures of 5 for 27. While holding his nerves, he bowled a fabulous last over to guide RCB to an amazing win in the previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
