Their team is packed with match winners and most importantly all of them are clicking at the right time. Their batting has been providing them huge totals. It is elucidated by the fact that in the top 3 most run-getters they have 2.
Colin Munro has been a revelation and Sunil Narine has been an unexpected X-factor. Also with top quality batsmen like Brendon McCullum, Hashim Amla and Darren Bravo up their sleeves, Knight Riders would be basking in the sun with ease. They would just hope to continue their hard-hitting form and torment, other teams.
If we talk about bowling, even then there is no respite for the opposition teams. Shadab Khan has been a new find with 9 wickets in his 5 outings. He has been ably assisted by his teammate Kevin Cooper who has dismissed 8 batsmen in as many matches. Sunil Narine has been killing batsmen with his economy. Dwayne Bravo too has been bowling exceedingly well at the depth.

In batting Kieron Pollard seems to be the lone warrior with 160 runs in just 4 matches. For them to win Kane Williamson and Shoaib Malik should showcase some of their prowess.
In bowling too Wahab Riaz has been waging a lone battle. He has taken 7 wickets in the 4 matches that he has played. Though a better performance would be expected from Wayne Parnell and Tino Best.
