Catch everything you need to know about the KKR vs KXIP match 6.

Kolkata Knight Riders Strength and Weakness

The spin attack of KKR is their biggest strength. Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav bowl in tandem and it just doesn’t get better than this, having two of the best at the same time. In the batting department too, they possess good power.

One aspect in which they might suffer is the pace department. Yes, there is Andre Russell but the pacer has been battling through a few injuries. If the opposition attacks the pacers, the inexperience of the youngsters might hurt them.

Dinesh Karthik, Chris Lynn, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Shrikant Mundhe, Yarra Prithviraj, Anrich Nortje, Nikhil Naik, Harry Gurney , Joe Denly, Lockie Ferguson, Carlos Brathwaite

Kings XI Punjab Strength and Weakness

KL Rahul and Chris Gayle will be the batting mainstay. A lot will depend on how these two play at the top. Gayle has been in an outstanding form recently as he showcased that in the ODI series against England.

But somehow, the middle-order is lacking punch. David Miller, who once used to be a force to reckon with for Kings XI Punjab, isn’t that big a threat anymore. However, the bowling department looks strong due to the presence of Andrew Tye, Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Shami.
