Nothing gets louder than the domicile of KKR, Eden Gardens when they optically discern their team live in action. KKR has won the Indian Premier League title twice(in 2012 and 2014), both under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir.

KKR commenced the eleventh edition of IPL by stunning everybody without holding their trusted and successful leader Gautam Gambhir. It reminds of the fourth edition of IPL where KKR released Sourav Ganguly.

KKR got their hands on a squad of mere 19 players in the auction. It was the only team after the auction which made it arduous to presage the Captain for the side. KKR declared Dinesh Karthik as their captain for the upcoming season of IPL.

Dinesh Karthik will be one of the finest players to highlight in this year`s IPL but it will be a mystery to visually perceive if he can carry the load of the team.Taking a powerful call to appoint a callow captain, KKR will furthermore need to scratch their head in culling the best possible XI.

The team composed its core by well-experienced players like Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Mitchell Starc, Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa after concluding the auction. But with the Aussie star pacer, Mitchell Starc not a component of this year IPL has called for some challenges.

Let's take a look at 4 key players for KKR :

#1 Chris Lynn

BBL - Stars v Heat

Aussie player, Chris Lynn has returned to practice net after suffering from a shoulder injury. Chris Lynn is one of the likely openers with the other being either Robin Uthappa or Sunil Narine.

Veraciously, Chris Lynn is one of the most brutal openers for the upcoming season but he always has injuries knocking on his door.


Chris Lynn will without a doubt be one of the most important aspects of the side. If KKR wants to put pressure on opposition from ball one, it is critical for Chris Lynn to perform large and in charge.

Lynn holds the ability to single-handedly win games with the bat and KKR will be banking on him to deliver when it matters.

KKR lost hold of their accomplished batting center with players like Gautam Gambhir, Manish Pandey, and Yusuf Pathan. It is ahead of schedule to trust players like Nitish Rana, Ishank Jaggi, Rinku Singh and Apoorv Wankhede to fill the batsmen spaces in the squad. Consequently, the group will request Chris Lynn to play a mindful innings also.
