Barring Gill and Iyer, none of the batsmen got to bat in the last game. Nitish Rana opened the batting in the first leg but has now been demoted to number three. He has been one of the better batsmen for KKR in the tournament. It remains to be seen how he bats at the number three position. Rahul Tripathi is expected to bat at four, while Eoin Morgan will be coming at number five.

Morgan had a horrendous outing in the first leg of the tournament. He has failed to live up to the expectations. The English skipper is one of the most dangerous batsmen in the shortest format and certainly has the ability to make a turnaround. Dinesh Karthik hasn’t got a lot of opportunities this season. He is likely to bat at six.
