Knuckleball specialist Andrew Tye, Barinder Sran, and Mohit Sharma are likely to lead the attack and their pace will play a huge role in scripting a  win for the kings.

The former Indian bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad stepped down as the selector of junior national selection panel earlier this week.

The 48-year-old pacer had represented 194 internationals and picked over 290 scalps.
