IPL 2021 – KKR Playing XI vs SRH: Why Shakib should feature against SRH: Andre Russell has been a match-winning all-rounder for Kolkata Knight Riders over the past couple of seasons. His unavailability leaves a big void in the lower middle order as well as death over bowling attack for KKR. Eoin Morgan’s side tested Tim Siefert in the previous against Punjab Kings but the Kiwi wicketkeeper batsmen couldn’t impress as he went out cheaply after being run out. While it will be unfair for Siefert to be dropped out after just one game, time seems to be running out for KKR. They need an all-rounder who can bat in the lower middle order and also chip in with the ball just like Andre Russell. And, Shakib Al Hasan seems to be a perfect replacement for it.
