KKR lost their second consecutive game yesterday against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The two times champions were beaten by 38 runs. They also lost to Mumbai Indians despite getting a good start by the top-order batsmen in their previous match.
However, the recent performance from the Knights has given rise to a lot of questions regarding their performance in the upcoming matches. In both of these matches, KKR started pretty well. But failed to maintain the momentum and lost the matches.
Here are some of the problems for KKR to check on as soon as possible
1. The poor form of batsmen:
The middle-order batsmen of Kolkata Knight Riders were not in their best form currently. Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Kartik, Shakib-Al Hasan, Andre Russel failed to perform as per the expectation.
If KKR wants to comeback soon then they will need these players to step up soon.
2. Bad form of bowlers:
Bowlers are not in their best form as well. Experienced players like Harbhajan, Shakib, Russel is giving away too many runs, which are haunting them at the end.
3. Losing the match from winning situation:
In the last match against Mumbai Indians, KKR started pretty well while chasing. But at the end moments, they choked.
Yesterday again, KKR started pretty well with two quick wickets. But later, a blistering Knocks from Glen Maxwell and AB de Villiers changed the game for RCB.
