Strengths of KKR:

Russell and Narain for KKR

Four-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders have the best all-rounders in their squad for this season of fantasy cricket league of Dream11 IPL 2020. West Indies most destructive all-rounder Andre Russell and the mystery spinner from Trinidad Sunil Narine will be the X-factors for them. Muscle Russell is popularly known as ''Dre Russ'' and he is an outstanding player as we all know that. Narain is also a handy all-rounder since he came up to the batting order with Subhman Gill. They are the perfect all-rounders for KKR who can deliver with both balls as well as with the bat for his side. They now also have new sensation from England Tom Banton too in the batting line-up along with Shubman Gill. Their skipper Dinesh Karthik has played some mind-blowing knocks in the previous editions. Also, Australian pacer Pat Cummins and Lockie Ferguson can trouble any batsman in the world with their accurate line and length. By combining all these factors make them a strong contender of IPL 2020. So, overall Kolkata Knight Riders is a well-balanced team who could thrash out any opponent on his day.


  • Inexperience Indian players:
Gill, Mavi and Nagarkoti for KKR

Kolkata Knight Riders have one of the most talented inexperience players in the squad like Shubman Gill, Rinku Singh, Siddhesh Lad in the batting lineup and Prasidh Krishna, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti in their bowling department. So, the lack of experience of these talented players can cause the KKR side unless the Kolkata-based franchise bring the best out of these players by motivating them and trusting on their skills. So, this will be a threat for them as they want to resolve it earlier in the tournament.
