The KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders) squad is the most vibrant team in IPL 2020. But what does it need to gain actual success?
Half of the players are under the same pick this year. Shubham Gill and Sunil Narine will be seen in the opening pair. KKR has fought and struggled a lot in the past years. Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik have always been tasked in the middle with the upping rate.
What is the team distribution?
But, in 2020, there is a possibility of a new change. With the entry of Tom Banton for the 3rd position, it can create a difference. Banton has a strike rate of 154.16 and is a 360degree batsman.
Nitish Rana has maintained consistency. In the last 3 seasons, he had performed brilliantly with the bat. He can be an option for the ball with his off-spin style. Rahul Tripathi will be seen as an extra batsman in the team.
Being a fast bowler, Pat Cummins will be adding depth to the lineup. The spin’s primary options will be Narine and Kuldeep Yadav. Whereas Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Prasidh Krishna will be finishing the pace department. A wildcard will be entering the squad. Last week after signing for KKR, Ali Khan can be the wildcard. USA’s Khan will be hitting the Yorker length regularly as he is a pace bowler.
