Rahul has already scored 451 runs in 10 appearances, including two undefeated knocks, with an average of 56.38 and a strike rate of 145.02.

Bowler

Umesh Yadav

So far, Umesh Yadav has been KKR’s standout bowler. He has been their go-to man with the ball in hand since the season opener against defending champions CSK. The senior pacer may have gone wicketless on a number of occasions, but it hasn’t stopped him from making the Orange Cap list with 15 scalps to his name. The Vidarbha quick is hungry to add to his wicket total.
