Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made a good start in IPL 2019, however, they have lost their track in between and need to come back soon with a victory. KKR should send Andre Russell little early in the middle as top batsmen have been observed to play with a slow strike rate leaving too much for Muscle Russell in the end.
