IPL 2020: Kolkata Knight Riders’ team list, strong and weak sides, know everything

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), who have won two titles of the Indian Premier League (IPL), will make their 13th season debut with a match against Mumbai Indians on 23 September. This will be KKR’s first match of the season, while Mumbai Indians will play their second match. This time, players like Eoin Morgan, Pat Cummins, Tom Banton have been associated with KKR’s team.

Kolkata Knight Riders’ strong side

Andre Russell had a bang for KKR last year. He had scored over 500 runs at a strike rate of over 200. Russell is a great player and has the power to turn the match between the ball and bat. Apart from this, the team has two great spinners in the form of Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine. This year, the team has bought Pat Cummins, who specializes in doing wonders with the ball, can also score faster with the bat if needed. The team has great batsmen in the form of Shubman Gill. Overall, KKR’s team appears to be a balanced team.

Kolkata Knight Riders’ weak side

Last season, there were some differences between captain Dinesh Karthik and star cricketer Andre Russell, although recently Karthik said that there were no differences between the two. Captaincy is the weakest side of the KKR team. Sunil Gavaskar has also recently said that Eoin Morgan can be made the captain of KKR if Karthik does not perform well as captain.
