2nd match of IPL 2019 : KKR vs SRH
KKR has won the IPL title twice. The team line-up of KKR is looking strong. Like previous year, this time also Dinesh karthik is leading the team. Under his leadership, the team reached the play offs in previous season. But there is disappointing news for KKR. Three key players of KKR are out of tournament due to injury. Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje are out of IPL due to injury.
Here we will discuss about the possible playing XI of KKR.
In opening they have many options like Chris Lynn, Shubham Gill and Sunil Narine. Chris lynn and Sunil Narine were the openers of KKR in the previous season . In middle order they have many players like Nitish Rana, Joe Denly, Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa. In Kolkata knight riders there are many all-rounders like Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite and Joe Denly.
The spin bowling department of Kolkata knight riders is the strongest spin department among all IPL teams. They have many world class spinners like Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla and Kuldeep Yadav. In fast bowling department thay have Lockie Ferguson, Harry Gurney, Sandeep Warrier and Prasidh Krishna. In wicket keeping they have Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa. But they will probably go with Dinesh Karthik.
The team line-up of Kolkata knight riders is looking balanced but they have many issues of concerns also. In IPL 2018 they won the eliminator match against Rajasthan Royals but lost to SRH in qualifier 2. In previous season Chris Lynn could not perform well in every match. KKR will be hoping that he performs good in every match of IPL this time. The good news for Kolkata knight riders is that Andre Russell is fit and will be available for entire IPL, although their complete bowling department is not looking so strong.
Possible playing XI of KKR:- 1) Chris Lynn 2) Sunil Narine 3) Shubham Gill 4) Nitesh Rana 5) Robin Uthappa 6) Dinesh Karthik 7) Andre Rusell 8) Kuldeep Yadav 9) Piyush Chawla 10) Lockie Ferguson 11) Prasidh Krishna
