Pant, Captain Shreyas and Chris Lynn coming into their own slowly and steadily. With the surface at the Kotla expected to offer spinners some assistance, KKR hopes their core bowling attacker –  Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, and Piyush Chawla have to bring in their beast.

DD also poses KKR’s run-getter Captain Dinesh Karthik, Robin Uthappa, and Nitish Rana some major threat from Liam Plunkett and Trent Boult. The former made an instant impression returning 3-17 in his IPL debut outing and the latter is DD’s highest wicket-taker this season.
