KKR’s last match was against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which they lost by 7 wickets after scoring 175 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in 20 overs. In terms of head-to-head stats, Kolkata marginally leading the charts as they have won 13 games out of the 24 they have played against each other so far. However, since 2018, it has been skewed in favor of KKR, who have won 7 games of their 9 clashes.

R Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal have often been seen troubling Aaron Finch and Nitish Rana. Ashwin may be given a go in the powerplay while holding Chahal back for when Rana comes out to bat, as the leg spinner has dismissed the middle-order batter 4 times. Rana averages just 14 against Chahal and managed to maintain a low strike rate of 109.80. They would hope Trent Boult is fit to play and makes his way back into the XI in place of James Neesham.

Probable XI: Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Riyan Parag, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal

Despite the fact that Jos Buttler is in an ominous form, he has been dismissed 5 times by the KKR spin twins and it may prompt KKR to have spin from one end in the powerplay. Against Chakravarthy, Buttler has only scored 12 runs in 8 balls and has been dismissed twice. Sanju Samson, meanwhile, has fallen thrice to Umesh and Narine, striking at 79.67 and averaging 15.67 against the West Indian off-spinner. KKR may also push Shreyas Iyer down the order to negate the Chahal threat in the middle overs.

Probable XI: Aaron Finch, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, Aman Hakim Khan, Varun Chakravarthy

Jos Buttler (c), Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell (vc), Pat Cummins, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen
