There is little risk in the early matches of South African players and selecting De Coke and De Villiers can be silly. Andre Russell will return after two years. Moin Ali and Chris Wock are also dangerous options. Besides all players are available and can play matches.
De Karthik looks the safest option in the wicket-keeper section but Parthiv Patel usually opens for RCB so that will be a better option. KKR has a very young team and it is difficult to say that if anyone gets the chance, who will do all that, but Nagauroti after his performance during the U-19 World Cup looks like a certain starter.
Wicketkeeper All three are good options but Q de Kock may not play the first match.
Batsmen:- V Kohli (must have C and VC), Chris Lynn (big hitter C and VC), R Uthappa (KKR’s mainstay for long years now), B McCullum (somewhat out of touch but dangerous in his day), M Singh (Can be your trump card), S Gill (risky but can be your trump card)
All rounders: A Russell (may be little rusty), S Narine (must have C and VC), P Chawla (always fares well in IPL), C de Grandhomme (can be destructive)
Bowlers: Chahal, Kuldeep, U Yadav, W Sundar, T Southee, M Johnson
