Best buys in IPL 2020 (KKR)

Eoin Morgan- The world cup winning captain was taken away by Kolkata Knight Riders in auction for a fair price of 5.25 crore. His experience in the middle order will be crucial after release of Uthappa and will help Dinesh Kartik on and off the field as well. The English batsman will be looking to make some valuable runs and help achieve a strong total for its team.

Pat Cummins- The Australian pacer is at its peak right now and performing in top class act. Hence his bidding had to be at the top, he is the highest paid overseas player till now and was sold to KKR for a whopping 15.50 cr. Cummins would be very beneficial for the team in opening the bowling attack and also delivering his variations and Yorkers at the death overs.

 

 

Best KKR players to bet on:

1. Batsman

  • Eoin Morgan- The English batsman will be a sure shot player to bet on, he led England to win the world cup and it was his crucial knocks which saved his team in many matches. His stats have not been the best in IPL but he would be looking to make his mark in this season. Also he would get a good opportunity in KKR as the middle order batsmen are not much experienced players in the team this time. He can prove to be a match winner for KKR in IPL 2020.
  • Shubhnam Gill- The young Indian batsman has a lot of potential which he has shown in domestic cricket and with absence of Cris Lynn this time, he could get big time in matches and prove his worth as a player and for the team. He has some fantastic range of shots and is in good form which will be beneficial for KKR in this IPL season.

2. Bowler

  • Pat Cummins- Pat Cummins comes into the side as the spearhead of a rather inexperienced pace attack. Cummins will have the responsibility of bowling with the new ball as well as in the death overs. He is currently at his peak of his career which will be boon for KKR and Cummins would be looking to dominate the opponents with the ball. With flat surface and bounce on the pitch, he can be a deadly bowler to face for the batsmen.
  • Kuldeep Yadav- The Indian spinner is great at his business and knows to take crucial wickets, last season did not went that well for Kuldeep and he would be looking forward to make up for the wickets. With the pitches which may support spin bowling, he becomes a top player to put your bets on.

3. All rounder

  • Sunil Naraine- Naraine has proved to be gem for KKR since past few years, the spinner has looked really sharp while bowling, and hardly leaving any loose deliveries. His place in KKR became a spot of highlight from the time he started opening for the team and has made sure he takes the best advantage of the power-play overs. The all rounder is sure to make a statement this year as well with his witty deliveries and hard-hitting shots.
  • Andre Rusell- The muscle Russell, as they call him, has earned his name for the finisher in the team. He has the ability to hit the bowl out of the park and make even the best bowlers lose their line and length easily. When this man is set, it is really hard to keep KKR out of winning. Andre Rusell and rescued KKR in most of the matches last season, he can also bowl some quickies for the team if required.

Expected playing 11 for KKR

  • Sunil Naraine
  • Rahul Tripathi
  • Shubhnam Gill
  • Eoin Morgan
  • Nitish Rana
  • Dinesh Kartik
  • Andre Russell
  • Pat Cummins
  • M. Siddharth
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Prasidha Krishna

 

Kolkata Knight Riders Winning Odds

KKR has won the title twice but it seems quite unlikely that this season could be the one in favour of Knight Riders. The winning odds are placed at 8.00 which approximately gives KKR 10.70 % chance of winning the IPL title this time.

Kolkata Knight Riders have always been a strong side to compete and the match winners in the team can make any game turn to their favour, hence anything can happen. But observing at the current squad of KKR, the side seams a bit inexperienced as compared to last few years, they have had some good buys this season. Their performance would be the key for Knight Riders to move ahead in the IPL league.

The winning odds for Kolkata knight riders for IPL 2020 are placed at 8.00. Put your bets early on for better rewards.

KKR Strengths

The key for KKR is going to be their T20 specialists this season. They have invested in some top T20 players which can win those matches in IPL 2020 and the team would hugely depend on them to make a statement. There will be hopes on Andre Russell, Eoin Morgan, Pat Cummins and Shubhnam Gill to take the match away from their opponents. If coordination goes well with the knights then they would definitely be looking at top four in IPL 2020.

KKR Weakness

The weak point could be the inexperience in the team, there will be some young players who are not very exposed to the dynamics of the world-class players and it would be tough for them to compete with them, especially the young pace bowlers.

Secondly, there are many players in KKR who haven’t played with each other till now and have a very different style of playing cricket, so there may be some issues in coordination and dressing room which was also heard in previous seasons with KKR. So that could be a negative point for knights.
