KKR Full Squad IPL 2021

Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Tim Seifert (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Eoin Morgan (c), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Varun CV, Kuldeep Yadav, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Sandeep Warrier, Prasidh Krishna, Shakib Al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer, Pawan Negi
 

Key Players of KKR

Andre Russel has been a key player for KKR. He didn't have a good season last year. Fitness is also a concern with Russell, he has missed a lot of games due to his knee injury. A fully fit Russell would be a boon for KKR. 

He is an all-rounder and adds to the balance of the side with his full quota of overs. If Russell is not fit then KKR needs to opt for an additional bowling option as well. 

Getting the right opening combination will also be crucial for KKR. Last year, they struggled to find the right pair of opening batsmen. The lack of runs for Sunil Narine means KKR will have to choose between Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana at the top to open the batting with Shubman Gill. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad full squad for IPL 2021

David Warner (Captain), Kane Williamson, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Sreevats Goswami (WK), Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Kedar Jadhav, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Virat Singh, Mitchell Marsh, Jason Holder, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T. Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul, Basil Thampi, Jagadeesha Suchith, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman

Key Players for SRH

Sunrisers Hyderabad has produced consistent results in the last few years. They made it to the playoffs last season.  The opening pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow has been excellent at the top of the order. 

They have match-winners with the bowl as well in form of Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Last season, T Natarajan was also superb in the death overs. 

They can never be ruled out and remain one of the favorites in IPL 2021. 

It is very hard to choose between the two teams. Since SRH has a settled unit they will start as the favorites for the match. For KKR, it will be all about finding the right combination. Last season, they struggled to find the right balance throughout the tournament. This time the conditions will be different and they will expect their star players to return to form.
