All-rounder Sunil Narine has been a key player for KKR throughout IPL17. He has scored the most runs and has also taken 16 wickets. KKR have spread the wickers around this season, with five bowlers having at least 15 wickets. Top wicket taker has been Varun Chakravarthy, with 20, and he also has the best economy rate of the side.

SRH’s batting has been powered by overseas duo Travis Head and Heinrich Klaasen and 20-year-old Indian Nitish Kumar Reddy. Thangarasu Natarajan and captain Pat Cummins have been the side’s highly effective strike bowlers.
