His strike rate is not at par with the best in the game, 122.80. Andre Russell (128 runs in 4 innings) did not get many chances. But, when he did, he scored at the strike rate of 200.00.

Sunil Narine also leads the bowling attack for KKR. He has taken 7 wickets so far at an average of 23.57. His economy is impressive at 6.87. Another spinner Varun Chakaravarthy is the next. He has also taken 7 wickets with an average of 28.57. His economy is 9.09.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru

Bengaluru haven’t had the best tournament with their bowling yet. Yash Dayal, with 5 wickets in 6 innings, is their best bowler so far. Glenn Maxwell, who is unlikely to play against KKR, has taken 4 wickets in 4 innings. So has Mohammed Siraj in 6 innings.
