Kolkata Knight Riders have been struggling very badly this season. They are at the 8th position and have won only one match in the last 5 games that they’ve played. Opening has been a major issue for them. Shreyas Iyer too has failed to play big knocks and perform consistently. Nitish Rana and Rinky Singh have done well in the middle-order while Andre Russell has performed in most of the games with the bat. KKR needs consistency from the batting unit.
The bowlers have been decent for KKR. Tim Southee has bowled well for them while Umesh Yadav has picked wickets in almost every game. Shivam Mavi has been average. Sunil Narine has been exceptional and has bowled very economically. Andre Russell has chipped in with wickets whenever he has got the chance to bowl.
