KKR Batting Sounds Strong

The opening responsibilities will be dealt with by Australian Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine, who were consistent at the top. With Robin Uthappa coming in at number three, the group has a powerful top-order.

Before the 2018 IPL, KKR’s inexperienced middle order had raised concerns, but the nice kind of Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana, alongside the mature lineup of skipper Dinesh Karthik made them a power to reckon with. Andre Russell, together with his mighty sixes also added to the score whenever needed.

Nikhil Naik, a wicket-keeper from Maharashtra, with a strike-rate of 128.89 in 26 T20 games is the second addition to the batting unit.

Prediction of IPL 2019

KKR appear to have covered all bases though the lack of an Indian fast-bowler and a Indian opening batsman for if Lynn leaves may be a concern. Robin Uthappa was inconsistent last year and when Narine, who on many accounts is still not considered a suitable opener, misfires as well, the problems could increase manifold.

The fast bowling unit does lack expertise, with just Ferguson playing for his global team, but the franchise has ever chosen to give opportunities to young stars, who subsequently weave their way up to consistency. Players such as Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey and Kuldeep Yadav were young guns in KKR and they’ve made their mark in the chances that have been given to them. Overall, KKR do seem like a well-balanced device, and when they play to their potential, they might only be the team to watch out for.
