IPL 2022

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) , who finished runners-up last season in the Indian Premier League (IPL), will take the field in the first match of this season.

In the first match of this season, they will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who defeated them in the finals.

KKR would like to start the new season on a positive note while avenging the loss of the previous season.

Kolkata Knight Riders is one of the most balanced teams. They have exceptional talent led by experienced players.

KKR have a good composition of batsmen. As a pure batsman on paper, the options may appear limited, but if all-rounders are included in this, then the team’s batting is quite dangerous.

Venkatesh Iyer is sure for the opening and Shreyas Iyer for the middle order. Nitish Rana will be used in the opening or at number three. Andre Russell, Mohammad Nabi and Sunil Narine will provide strength to the power hitting.

The performance of Varun Chakraborty, who did amazing last season, will be eyeing this season as well. Apart from this, Narine and Nabi are two such all-rounders who can turn the tide of the match by bowling four overs each.

Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Tim Southee and Russell will be the strong base of the team in fast bowling. KKR are expected to have more than six bowling options in their playing XI.

Billings and Venkatesh Iyer can open the innings from KKR’s team. On the other hand, Shreyas, Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh can be other options in the batting.

Apart from these, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine can be seen in the role of all-rounder in the middle order.

Along with Cummins, there could be fast bowlers in Shivam Mavi and Umesh Yadav. Mystery spinner Varun Chakraborty is also a good option.

Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Varun Chakraborty, Pat Cummins, Nitish Rana, Shivam Mavi, Sheldon Jackson, Ajinkya Rahane, Rinku Singh, Anukul Roy, Rasikh Dar, Baba Inderjit, Chamika Karunaratne, Abhijit Tomar , Pratham Singh, Ashok Sharma, Sam Billings, Alex Hales, Tim Southee, Ramesh Kumar, Mohammad Nabi, Umesh Yadav, Aman Khan
