Kolkata Knight Riders will still be playing without their leading pacer Pat Cummins in the match against Bangalore. Australian white-ball captain Aaron Finch is also not available for this match. His death bowling was a big concern but Umesh Yadav breaking the game inside the powerplay proved to be a game-changing moment. Pat Cummins’ presence doesn’t solve all his death bowling problems, but Pat Cummins’ experience and reputation are undeniable. Shivam Mavi and Andre Russell struggled to prove their plan against MS Dhoni in the first game. Also Read- RCB vs KKR Head to Head
KKR has the option of playing an additional overseas player in place of Sheldon Jackson. The overseas options available on the bench are Chamika Karunaratne, Mohammad Nabi and Tim Southee. The Kiwi pacer has joined the team and has also started training. Sam Billings may take over the wicket-keeping duties in Sheldon Jackson’s absence but it is good to see KKR relying on an Indian substitute who has worked hard for a long period of time in the domestic circuit.
KKR’s strong suit is their spin department and it once again came in handy in the first game and there is no need for them to mess with that combination.

- Anjikya Rahane
- Shreyas Iyer
- Nitish Rana
- Sam Billings
- Andre Russell
- Sunil Narine
- Tim Southee/Sheldon Jackson
- Shivam Mavi
- Umesh Yadav
- Varun Chakravarthy
KKR relied on Andre Russell with four overs in the game and did not use their sixth bowling option in Venkatesh Iyer. If their death bowlers continue to leak runs, it would not be a bad idea to try Varun Chakraborty and Sunil Narine for the death overs.
