Picking a wicketkeeper for the list was tough as two Indians, Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni, were in contention. However Bairstow stole the spot away after his scintillating century against RCB.

He could have been the opener in the list but instead he will be the finisher along with Andre Russell. He scored 198 runs from 3 games at an average of 66 and became this week’s second highest run-getter.

In the first three games so far, Muscle Russell has been unbelievable. His destructive can be proved by the fact that at one point he held both the Orange and Purple cap. He can be hugely attributed for the success of KKR in the first week.

Dre Russ has the power to change the complexion of the game in a matter of few balls. In the first game against SRH, he scored 49 off 19. Against KXIP, he scored a 17-ball 48, thanks to a no-ball controversy. His destructive attitude didn’t change against DC where he scored 62 off just 28 balls.
