Strength: Manish Pandey and Gambhir are amongst the runs. Opening of Sunil Narine is a surprise factor for opposition teams. Weakness: Sunil Narine and other bowlers have not picked up wickets. Injury to Chri Lynn is a setback. Also lack of support from middle order batsmen. Star impact– First of all Gautam Gambhir apart from being the captain was also the leading run -getter for KKR in IPL 2016 with 501 runs from 16 matches.
