Cricket is a funny game. Some time we can’t expect what will happened in the game of cricket. That’s what exactly happened with KKR. Kolkata is the only team whose batting averages were too low comparatively.

SWOT Analysis of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
Former IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders will be keen to join the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings in the club of IPL teams with at least three titles. The Knight Riders won their maiden title in 2012. Two years later, they added one more trophy to their cabinet.
The Kolkata Knight Riders have done well in the previous three seasons. However, they have not been able to deliver the goods when it mattered the most. In 2018, they lost to the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Qualifier 2. On the other side, they have missed out on a playoffs berth in the previous two seasons. The team owners made some big decisions ahead of IPL 2021. They bought some of their former players back, while some new names have become a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders for IPL 2021.
Kolkata’s SWOT Analysis IPL 2021
Strengths – Domestic Players
It goes without saying that the Kolkata Knight Riders have one of the strongest domestic lineups in IPL 2021.
Weaknesses – Lack of Middle Order Form
Eion organ, Dinesh Karthik, Sunil Narine batting form in this series is a big question
Opportunities – Golden chance for the uncapped Indian players
With two T20 World Cup tournaments in two years, many players will look to gain a place in their respective team’s World Cup squad by impressing in IPL 2021. The Kolkata Knight Riders have a strong group of uncapped Indian players. Shubman Gill recently cemented his place in Team India but need to prove once again to back into the Blue jersey.
Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi could make a statement by batting with consistency in the Kolkata Knight Riders top order. Tripathi and Rana could break into the Indian side if they continue performing well for KKR.
Tripathi helped KKR to enter final with his second to last ball SIX… which led to Final. Prasidh Krishna once earned Virat Kohli’s attention with his pace. However, his performances declined last year. These players need to prove themselves with match-winning performances. Ultimately, it will benefit Kolkata to win this match against final.
This is an opportunity of strengthening their candidature for a place in Team India with some brilliant performances for KKR tonight against Chennai Super Kings.
Threat: Playing against Chennai Super Kings.
