KKR Team Squad

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Harshit Rana, Varun Chakravarthy

SRH Team Squad

Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Nitish Reddy, Heinrich Klaasen (WK), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Sanvir Singh, Pat Cummins (C), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande


KKR are top choices. There is very little to pick between groups regarding quality, nonetheless, we feel that KKR have a superior bowling assault. KKR’s victory or defeat could be decided by the presence of Narine and Chakravarthy. The spinners have been in extraordinary structure and we question in the event that SRH can direct terms against Narine and Chakravarthy at Narendra Modi Arena pitch which has become supportive for spinners.
