Probable best batter Venkatesh Iyer

The KKR all-rounder put on a batting masterclass in the previous game as he registered a swashbuckling century against Mumbai Indians. The lanky batter’s range of shots has garnered him applause from all corners, and he will be hoping to further enhance his reputation as a dependable batter in the upcoming fixtures.

Probable best bowler Suyash Sharma

It is hard to imagine that a 19-year-old legspinner is outshining the likes of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy in a star-studded KKR bowling line-up. Suyash Sharma was exceptional in the previous outing against Mumbai Indians when all the other KKR bowlers were torn apart by the Mumbai batters. He is slowly becoming a vital cog of the KKR bowling unit.
