TKR Team News
After resting many of their players for the final group stage match, we expect Kieron Pollard to name his best possible XI for this playoff fixture. The Knight Riders have been fortunate with a lack of injuries during the tournament and they have a full squad to choose from.

- Martin Guptill - The experienced New Zealander has struck an unbeaten hundred and an unbeaten half-century in the tournament and with over 9300 T20 runs in his career, will always be a big wicket for the opposition.
- Nicholas Pooran - The left-hander will come back into the team after being rested for the last match. He has been in excellent form across multiple tournaments this year.
- Waqar Salamkheil - The young Afghanistan spinner picked up the wicket of the experienced Roston Chase in his last match and he should get turn as well as bounce on this pitch.
