In this year's IPL, Shikhar Dhawan is in charge of PBKS, and Nitish Rana is in charge of KKR. Both teams' practices have been hampered by injuries, and a few international players won't be available in the first few games.
The sudden shoulder injury to Shreyas Iyer has left KKR scrambling to adjust their batting order. Rana's unexpected promotion to captain shows that the group is counting on the southpaw to perform. The Delhi batsman had a few IPL seasons that were promising, but he lacked consistency. With Iyer probably missing half of IPL, Rana has to do well.

Shikhar Dhawan, Prabsimran Singh, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Jitesh Sharma, Shahrukh Khan, Sam Curran, Sikandar Raza, Harpreet Brar, Arshdeep Singh, Nathan Ellis, Rahul Chahar
