KKR Team Streagth

Strengths: KKR’s batting line-up is one of the best in the business. Despite losing Gambhir at the top of the order, KKR still have players like Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine to start with. Narine might not be consistent, but he does manage to tilt a few matches KKR’s way with his blitzkrieg. It remains to be seen whether the management decides to open with Uthappa and Lynn or Narine manages to continue as one of the openers.

Weaknesses: KKR’s bowling attack isn’t a force to reckon with and the franchise was dealt with a huge blow as Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi – superstars of India’s U-19 World Cup-winning campaign in 2018, were ruled out of the 12th edition with injuries. The team signed Sandeep Warrier as a replacement for Nagarkoti and it remains to be seen whether he can make the best of the opportunity. Sunrisers Hyderabad
