Rahul tripathi is a fair choice for KKR at the number 2 position . Talking about Rahul’s performance he has been struggling due to his form but this player has a huge hitting potential.

7. Andre Russell
Now comes the 7 position which is usually filed by the best finisher of any team . Russel-muscle would be the excellent fit at this position due to his 6 hitting capabilities and match winning tactics. HIs last year’s performance was almost nothing compared to his stats. Russell would surely try to improve his performance this season and bring back his form which will help 2 times to champion to hold the IPL cup once again.

Also KKR has backups such as shivam mavi and sandeep warrior which are perfect replacement of the young indian.
11. Kuldeep yadav
Coming to the last position or 11 kuldip yadav would surely be a good fix in this position.
