Phil Salt

Phil Salt has been one of the most important player for KKR all throughout the season. His explosive starts in every game have provided KKR with a distinct edge over the opposition and a confidence boost to all the other batters. Salt’s relentless attack has made bowlers clueless and he will be aiming for yet another such performance against DC in the upcoming game.

Sunil Narine:

The reincarnation of Sunil Narine - The Opener, has become KKR’s main strength this season and his all-round performances are helping KKR have the advantage in almost every game. Narine has been consistently performing with both bat and ball and has helped KKR win so many games this season. He would look to continue his rich vein of form and keep performing at the fullest.
