KKR Playing XI vs PBKS: What’s wrong with Russell?

  • Andre Russell didn’t complete his quota of four overs.
  • He picked up a niggle and bowled with a sore shoulder.
  • He was taken for scans after the match.
  • With little turnaround between the two games, it is difficult for him to be at 100% fit by Punjab Kings match

“Dre had run around the boundary and dived, and unfortunately picked up a little bit of a bump. His shoulder was a little bit sore. But Dre being Dre, he still wants to try to get the job done, and he wasn’t quite able to. Those are things which happen in low-scoring games,” Brendon McCullum said in the post-match press conference.

However, if he is unfit, Mohammad Nabi could be called up. The Afghanistan captain is also spin-bowling all-rounder and if the KKR vs PBKS match is played on a different strip at the Wankhede with less grass on surface, Nabi could be effective. Apart from that, he is also a great hitter of the ball and could give KKR a boost in the middle-order.

Chamika Karunaratne is the other seam-bowling all-rounder to fall on but he isn’t known for his batting acumen.

Ajinkya Rahane & Iyer to open – Rahane had a bad game in the RCB match but KKR should not panich just yet. Rahane did well in the first match against CSK and should retain his place until the next match.
