Middle-Order: Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, and Sheldon Jackson
Kolkata Knight Riders would be delighted to sign Shreyas Iyer at the Mega Auction. He recently showed his class in the T20 series against Sri Lanka. Iyer will bat at three in this batting unit. He ought to perform well if KKR fancies a chance in the playoffs this year.
KKR have also managed to bring Nitish Rana back into the team. He is another important batsman in this batting line-up and is likely to bat at number four. Rana has been a prolific run-scorer for KKR, over the years, and would be looking to continue in the same vein. At five is Sheldon Jackson, who will don the wicket-keeping gloves for KKR this year.
