Kolkata Knight Riders IPL Squad 2019


StrengthKolkata Knight Rider gave its best shot in balancing the team on all fronts. The juggernaut openers in the form of Sunil Naraine and Chris Lynn can give electrifying opening stand to the team leaving the middle order to capitalize. The middle order consists of dasher Robin Uthappa, Shubhman Gill and Dinesh Karthik making it one of the strongest batting line-up this season.

The all-rounder spot is filled by well deserving Andre Russell and Carlos Braithwaite to bring team out of the clutter during the crisis time. And above all the three legends of spinverse (Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Naraine) can fox any batsman across the globe with ease.

WeaknessThe fast bowling department is fragile and less experienced to contemporaries. Shivam Mavi and Prasidh Krishna are effective, but lack experience to bowl at the death overs. Only Joe Denly is the shining spot, which had a wonderful season in the Big Bash League.

Players to watch out forDinesh Karthik and Sunil Naraine are the players to watch out for Kolkata Knight Riders.
