KKR endured a lackluster season last year, failing to qualify for the playoffs due to inconsistent batting performances. Despite having promising players like Rinku Singh, their batting unit lacked stability. Skipper Nitish Rana, supported by the return of Shreyas Iyer, seeks to lead from the front with aggressive cricket. The absence of Roy and N Jagadeesan creates an opportunity for Rahmanullah Gurbaz to find a new opening partner. Sunil Narine and Andre Russell remain pivotal to KKR’s lineup, while Mitchell Starc’s presence adds depth to their bowling attack. The inclusion of Manish Pandey bolsters their middle order, offering experience and stability. With Venkatesh Iyer likely to open alongside Gurbaz, KKR aims for a strong start in the tournament.
