Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted XI
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) squad is among the most flamboyant in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL), but how can it translate it into success?
Most of the members from last year’s XI will remain automatic picks this year, with Sunil Narine and Shubman Gill continuing as the opening pair. KKR has struggled in the past to find regular boundaries after the PowerPlay overs, which meant Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell were often tasked with upping the rate in the middle order.

2. Shubman Gill
3. Tom Banton (Overseas)
4. Nitish Rana
5. Dinesh Karthik (C & Wk)
6. Rahul Tripathi

8. Pat Cummins (Overseas)
9. Kuldeep Yadav
10. Prasidh Krishna
11. Kamlesh Nagarkoti
