Kolkata Knight Riders
The KKR team has scored the lowest score in this IPL season, which is not a proud remark. The failure of the top-order has made the team suffer in the end. With the backup of Morgan, the team is managing to score a reasonable target. Though the team is packed with talented players, they fail to utilize their potential. However, the only good thing about their team is the bowling attack. Cummins, Ferguson and Varun are striking back to back, which puts the opponents under pressure. KKR’s batsmen need to up their game if KKR has to make it to the playoffs.
Possible – 11
Subman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (C), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Pat Cummins, Chris Green, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy
The century by Dhawan in 2 consecutive is a massive boost to DC’s top-order. The middle order batsmen need to stop playing loose shots and should step up to boost the team’s total. The lack of support from the middle-order batsmen might hurt during the playoffs. Also, the team lacks a good finisher, like Pollard or ABDe, who could finish the games for the DC side. Their bowling looks excellent with the likes of Rabada, Nortje and Ashwin. DC would be giving KKR a tough fight for the 2 points.
Possible – 11
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Shimron Hetmyer , Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Tushar Deshpande, Anrich Nortje.
The performance is similar when both the teams are compared. Both their batting line ups are not entirely dependable and will need to be solidified. Though the KKR side looks weak, it still might have an upper hand in this clash and is expected to come on top.
Kolkata Knight Riders has an edge in this interesting clash.
