#3 Best Spinner: Kuldeep Yadav

KKR has a dangerous spin trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla which makes them one of the best spin attacks of the tournament. All the three spinners have been quite good for the franchise in the last couple of seasons but Kuldeep could prove to be their best spinner this season.

Kuldeep is one of the very few chinaman bowlers in world cricket at the moment. His different action makes it very difficult for any batsman to play him and this is the reason why he has been so successful in recent times.

The chinaman spinner is going through his purple patch at the moment. He has been doing well consistently for the Indian team since his arrival in the international cricket. KKR will be expecting Kuldeep to continue his dream run in IPL 2019 as well.

So far, the 24-year-old has played a total of 31 matches in IPL and has taken 35 wickets at an average of 24.51 and an economy rate of 8.22 with 20/4 being his best figures. These are decent numbers but he has much better records in T20Is as he has picked 35 wickets from just 18 T20Is. So it will be interesting to watch if Kuldeep could replicate his T20I success in this year's IPL.
