Was looking to bowl as well because of the dew factor. Anukul is replaced by Suyash.
It was a mistake or maybe an intentional statement by the newly appointed KKR skipper Nitish Rana that Suyash Sharma will be debuting tonight.
19-year old Suyash Sharma will be playing his first ever IPL game tonight and also becomes the first debutant to play as an impact player. Surprisingly the leg spinner who was not included in the Playing XI will be coming in as a substitute after skipper Nitish Rana revealed the reasons why Suyash was brought in.
According to captain Rana, Suyash Sharma will be benefiting the bowling unit for tonight’s clash as the dew factor at the iconic eden gardens give more space to the spinners and apart from the usual – Narine and Varun Chakravarthy, Suyash will be adding bonus tonight.
