4 players who might be dropped by KKR in IPL 2019
Kolkata Knight Riders have made the playoffs following a late surge. The Dinesh Karthik led side were written off by many at the start of the season, especially following the injury to Mitchell Starc but they recovered well and now have a chance of lifting the trophy.
While there were some stellar performances from a few players, many of them flattered to deceive.
Here are five players KKR might drop from their side ahead of IPL 2019:
#4 Mitchell Johnson
Johnson had a horrific IPL 2018, picking up just 2 wickets in 6 matches and leaking runs at an economy of over 10, which is just not good enough. Johnson seems to have lost a yard of pace and batsmen found it easy to smash his bowling to all parts of the ground.
He struggled to take wickets up front and was poor at the death as well, meaning he was a liability in the KKR team and they ended up dropping him soon enough.
Johnson is unlikely to find a spot in the KKR set-up next season after his horrific showing.
