Kolkata Knight Riders seem to be experiencing a dip in form. After losing their first two matches they lost the next two to Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. KKR have their own set of problems. They just cannot find the right combination.

Head coach Brendon McCullum said that they need to work on certain aspects and they will be back in no time. He also hinted that Sunil Narine and a few new players might feature in their game against the Chennai Super Kings. However, Andre Russell’s off-form with the bat is also one issue that has hurt KKR.

“Sunil Narine stood on the rope before our first game which means he has had an injury where he was not 100% fit. He certainly comes into our calculations, he was touch and go for this game against RCB but we opted for Shakib who has been good for us and gives us an extra bit of batting. After three games, the guys have played well, we have not got the results, we probably would need some fresh legs for slightly different wickets in Mumbai” – Brendon McCullum.

Andre Russell will be key for Kolkata Knight Riders

In both the games that KKR lost Andre Russell was there at the end and was unable to finish. Kolkata Knight Riders will want the star West Indies all-rounder to fire and score runs at the death over. He was unable to hit the ball against Mumbai Indians and was also unable to finish the match against RCB.

Andre Russell knows that Kolkata Knight Riders success is largely dependent on his performance. He was seen practising hitting sixes at the Wankhede Stadium ahead of their game against Chennai Super Kings.

Andre Russell will be seen in action against the Chennai Super Kings and he will hope he can replicate the sixes he hit during the practice session. KKR will want their big hitter to fire against the men in yellow as they look to get back to winning ways.
