Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have succumbed to two successive defeats in a row and they will be facing in-form Chennai Super Kings in their next encounter tomorrow. This will be a big test for them considering the powerhouse Chennai Super Kings are and Kolkata needs to make sure that they get back into winning ways. So far, Kolkata has won one game and has lost the remaining two games in their campaign.
The only positive for them would be that Andre Russell looked to have got back his touch in the previous game. Prasidh Krishna and Pat Cummins have bowled well but their wicket tally hasn’t been that great but the likes of Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik haven’t managed big scores yet. Here are 3 stars from Kolkata Knight Riders who will be game-changers against Chennai Super Kings.
3 Stars From Kolkata Knight Riders Who Will Be Game Changers:
The left-hander Nitish Rana has been the standout batsman for the Kolkata Knight Riders so far and he has continued his good form from the domestic circuit into the tournament. He has been giving good starts to the team as well as been hitting the big shots at the much-needed times.
His 80 in the first game against Sunrisers was crucial in setting up the total for Kolkata Knight Riders and backed up with a good performance against Mumbai Indians scoring 57 off 47 deliveries in a 153 run chase. However, he perished early in the previous game with the asking rate going up for just 18 runs. He has been one of the positives for Kolkata Knight Riders despite their losses and a lot will be expected from him against the Chennai Super Kings.
