First of all, there is no injury issue and a full KKR squad is available for selection. They have plenty of options there in each section. The inclusion of Shakib has given the team a good dimension as well.

KKR will be dependent on Russell magic

Both the Carebeans Russell and Narine were silent last season. KKR will be looking at their form as well. KKR have a bunch of Indian fast bowlers. Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, Nagarkoti, Sandeep Warrier, and others can have a good opportunity this year.

Varun Chakravarthy will be in command of Spin. it will be interesting to see how much game Harbhajan and Kuldeep get.

Inside SRH:

SRH has plenty of firepower in the top order like the previous season. This season the addition of Jason Roy will give them more options. Kedar Yadav can be a crucial player for them in the middle order.

The return of Bhuveneshwar Kumar is very important for the SRH side. There is no famous pace bowler on this side. So SRH have to rely on their Indian Pacers.
