Rotating strikes - Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill DROPPED on 1

SRH vs KKR in Abu Dhabi - Pitch Report!
“The sun is out and it’s around 35 degrees at the moment in Abu Dhabi, so it should be comfortable for the players. We are playing on pitch number four today and that means it’s pretty much even boundaries on both sides of the ground. The surface looks green, so it should offer something for the faster men. It’s a pitch where you’ll need to hit the deck hard - bowl short and reap rewards.” - Ian Bishop and Danny Morrison
Cummins-Russell role reversal
Pat Cummins was expected to rattle batting line-up. Andre Russel was expected to hit big sixes. But there has been a role reverseal between the two players, as Cummins has scored runs, while Russell has taken wickets and slowed down run rate. This is a role reversal KKR DID NOT NEED.

Rashid Khan: The Key Man of SRH bowling unit
• Rashid Khan has been the most successful bowler so far for SRH in this season and has taken 25% of the total wickets taken by SRH bowling unit (10/40).
• But other than Rashid we see no other SRH bowler contributing significantly to the setup, Rashid is the only to have average under 20 and strike rate under 20 among the bowler to have played more than 2 matches.
Worrying signs of KKR
• They have lost 12 wickets in Power play, only RR have lost more in IPL 2020.
• KKR’s top 3 have scored 563 runs, the least by a team in IPL 2020.
KKR need to sort their Powerplay struggles
* Against MI KKR lost 2 wickets in Powerplay and managed to score just 33 runs.
• Throughout IPL 2020 KKR have struggled in the power play, they have scored 315 runs with the bat, at a strike rate of 109. the least by a team in IPL
Key player for Kolkata Knight Riders
Sunil Narine will likely return in Playing XI and he has to settle down KKR bowling line up which has looked rusty in his absene. Big responsibility on his shoulders.

Brian Lara makes interesting points
Brian Lara on KKR problems: “Captaincy was a never a problem for KKR. Sunil Narine won them a couple of matches with his bowling while defending a total so he needs to get that (his action) sorted out,” Lara said on Star Sports.
“Andre Russell needs to get runs, anybody can captain a team. I think they have put more pressure on themselves now, the camera is on them, they’ve had a change of captain, something is happening in the camp which is not right. That’s just the worst defeat for KKR that I’ve seen,” Lara added. READ MORE

Virender Sehwag on Shubman Gill
“Shubman Gill has had many opportunities and now the time has come for KKR to tell him to be a bit more aggressive in the powerplay and if can’t, bring him down in the batting order and send someone else up. If you are to win, the start needs to be good. If the foundation is not laid properly, you can’t build a solid innings on it,” Virender Sehwag told Cricbuzz.
