Now let us take a look at the best possible combination for the Kolkata Knight Riders IPL team during the upcoming IPL season.
Kolkata Knight Riders IPL Team management is expected to go with these two for the opening slot after Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa were dropped from this year's squad. All eyes will be on Aaron Finch, with the limited opportunities they have got, he has got all eyes lit up the audience with his audacious shot making. He is one for the future.
Both of these players are the integral part of the KKR Fantasy Cricket League Team.
This team has got a stable middle order with experience of Shyreas Iyer and Shivam Mavi and young guns. Nitesh Rana has done well enough for KKR to retain him for the upcoming season. Last time around, the Delhi batsman scored 344 runs at 34.40 with a strike-rate of 146.38. He also bowled some decent part time off spin. Muscle Russell is again expected to be the player to watch out for, he had a great season with the bat last season, batting mostly at six or even seven, he got 510 runs at an average of 56.66 and strike rate of almost 200. Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Mavi and Ajinkyya Rahane will handle the lower middle and finishing roles.
They have got the most inexperienced yet talented Fast Bowling pool headed by Pat Cummins. In 16 IPL games, Cummins only has 17 wickets, but his form for the Aussies made him a hot pick in the auction. The spin department will be handled by the likes of Narine and Mohammed Nabi being seen as one of the team's key elements for the IPL Cup. Prior to the tournament, Nabi will be looking for a good outing in the IPL.
