Devdutt Padikkal has failed in the last three games while the other batters have failed miserably and RR will look to rectify that.
Their bowlers have done a great job till now. Yuzvendra Chahal has been outstanding alongside Trent Boult. Kuldeep Sen has been impressive as well. Prasidh Krishna has been hot and cold.

But, overall, they’ve been quite good on the field.WATCH: Liam Livingstone almost takes Shahrukh Khan's head off with a cracking straight drive
Kolkata Knight Riders lost their last match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 wickets. Their top order has failed miserably in the tournament so far and it’s a big issue for them. Venkatesh Iyer has failed in all the games except one match while they tried Ajinkya Rahane for 5 games and brought in Aaron Finch in the last who failed to get going as well. Andre Russell is the only consistent batter for KKR and others need to assist him well.
KKR’s bowlers have been decent till now but they’ve gone for plenty of runs in the last two games. Umesh Yadav has failed to pick early wickets in the last two games while Pat Cummins has been very expensive. Varun Chakravarthy went for a lot in the last match. Sunil Narine has been economical while Andre Russell has been amongst wickets whenever he has bowled.
