KKR have been hampered by the poor form of key players. Venkatesh Iyer has struggled to notch up noteworthy scores while Varun Chakravarthy's bowling has been bad and he was dropped after playing 8 matches. With five losses in a row, KKR now find themselves at a lowly 8th place on the points table. Is it too late for the Kolkata franchise to stage a comeback? KKR have elected to bowl even though it is a used wicket. The rationale behind the decision could be the dew factor.
