KKR has disappointment in the IPL auctions and their chances of doing well in this years IPL seems a little low but you never know which team can perform better than you.

Let see Playing XI of KKR-

Chris Lynn – With an average of 38 and a strike rate of 150+ Lynn is without a doubt one of the most impactful batsmen in this IPL.

Robin Uthappa (c) – With 3700+ runs and am an orange cap to his name this guy is one of most experienced batsman out there as far as IPL is concerned. Taking into account his experience I will also make him the captain.

Shubham Gill – An average of 60+ in first-class cricket ( has played only two games in which he has already scored one triple century ) and 170+ in the u-19 t20 world cup this guy has the caliber to play well in IPL.With such attacking batsmen at the top of the order, he can give a little stability by holding on to one side and play throughout 20 overs.

Andre Russel – This guy is one of the most dangerous all-rounders in IPL having already scored 500+runs at a strike rate of 170+ and 31 wickets in 34 games that he has played this guy has the caliber to destroy any bowling side.

Dinesh Karthik (W)(C) – Karthik might not be the most consistent batsmen but with an experience of playing for India and also scoring around 3000 runs in IPL he is a decent batsman and will play an important part in Kolkata this year.

Sunil Narine – Everyone who has watched last year’s IPL knows this guy can bat and his bowling skills are known to the whole world he doesn’t need any introduction.

Nitish Rana – 437 runs in 15 IPL inning at an average of 30+ and 4 fifties this guy has made a name for himself in last years IPL.

Kuldeep Yadav – This guy has become a regular part of the Indian spin attack and everyone knows how dangerous this guy can be along with Narine I think Kolkata probably has the best spin department.

Mitchell Starc – With 350 international wickets, 28-year-old Starc is a modern day legend and he too like marine needs little introduction. He is the x-factor for the kkr.

Kamlesh Nagarkoti – Kamlesh who made his name in the recent u-19 world cup is the future of Indian fast bowling. He can constantly bowl at 140+ with accuracy, under starc he will have a lot to learn.

Vinay Kumar – An experience of over 100+ IPL matches and 100+ IPL wickets this guy has got what it takes to make an impact.

Now does this team look weak ??

Look at the bowling they probably have the best spinners ( Narine and Kuldeep Yadav).

In fast bowling too they have Starc ( no introduction needed ) Russel ( can bowl at 145 ) Kamlesh ( A rising star ) Vinay Kumar ( A veteran with over 100 wickets ).

In batting they have Uthappa ( a one time orange cap holder with over 3000 runs in IPL ), Lynn ( a destructive opener ) , Shubham gill ( a youngster with an average of over 170 in u-19 world cup which is mind-boggling in itself, even Virat didn’t have such a record in his u-19 world cup ) , Russel and Narine ( both of whom can play game-changing cameos ) Nitish Rana ( who has a great IPL record so far ) and there is Karthik too.

So overall this team looks good.

At the end of the day what matters is what they do on the ground.

The Kolkata Knight riders make a young team, they bought some under 19 player.they have quality spinners like kuldeep yadav and piyush chawla . also sunil is the best key for kkr.starc is always ready for fire but there has no experienced fast bowler who can assist starc. Lets hope for good.playing 11 of IPL 2018.
