Prasidh may face the axe due to his erratic spells
Prasidh Krishna had a great Indian debut in the ODI series vs England last month bowling with pace and showing penetration. However, he has been having an inconsistent run in the latest IPL games for KKR, bowling erratic spells and conceding runs.
KKR has struggled in the last 3 matches after winning against an off form Sunrisers in the opening game. A win is of prime importance in their forthcoming game against Rajasthan Royals. Hence there could be a case of expensive Prasidh Krishna being replaced by Harbhajan or Kuldeep.
Harbhajan has bowled in the powerplay in the matches he played for KKR and looked in decent form. However, Kuldeep is yet to play his first IPL match this season.
Taking into account the presence of lefthander’s in the Royals lineup, Harbhajan, the right arm off-spinner will be the favourite to start in the XI.
Hence it remains to be seen whether KKR think tank makes the above change in the bowling lineup which has looked inconsistent in this tournament so far.
