batsmen are not in rhythm
KKR have suffered defeat in the last three matches due to the collective failure of the batsmen. In the last match against Delhi, KKR batsmen did not score runs in 67 balls and the entire team was dismissed for 127 runs. Although England opener Jason Roy got the team off to a good start in the last match, his teammate Liton Das of Bangladesh could not get going. In such a situation, the bowling attack can be strengthened by keeping Narayan Jagadishan as the wicket-keeper batsman.

Andre Russell’s return to form was a positive aspect for KKR in the match against Delhi and the team would expect him to strike again. As far as bowling is concerned, spinner Sunil Narine could not get going in the last match and he will try to make a strong comeback against Chennai.
