KKR Team News
After a shambolic batting collapse against CSK in the last game, KKR batsmen will look to bat with more responsibility in this match. Sunil Narine could be very useful with the bat in the powerplay in this ground. Chris Lynn needs to score consistently, his performance this season has been below average. Andre Russell will once again be the man to look after, with his gigantic hitting abilities could send any bowling attack out of the park. It will be interesting to see if KKR management brings Lockie Ferguson back in the team for this game in palce of Harry Gurney, as this pitch is more suited for out and out fast bowler.
