Kolkata Knight Riders' top-order collapsed in the last game. However, Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi have done well so far in the tournament will remain crucial at the top. All eyes will be on Andre Russell, who showed why he is the most destructive batsman in the T20s in the last game.
Pat Cummins along with leading the bowling lineup, showed his value as a batsman as well in the previous game. With him coming in the lower order, KKR's batsmen will remain free to play their shots early. Kuldeep Yadav could be tried in place of Varun Chakravarthy in this game.
