Key Battles for David Warner against Kolkata Knight Riders

Mitchell Starc – One of the biggest contests on Wednesday night is set to be the one between David Warner and Mitchell Starc. The battle between two Aussie behemoths will be a classic tale. Mitchell Starc hasn’t picked a wicket as of now and is struggling with the bat. The left-arm pacer is set to come up against his teammate David Warner who is breathing fire with the bat. The Aussie veteran has added a few new shots against the pace bowlers in his arsenal and this will be a great battle between two star players.

Varun Chakravarthy – David Warner has had his fair share of issues against spinners throughout his career. When Delhi Capitals take on KKR there will be one bowler who could trouble the Aussie star. 

The bowler is none other than 32-year-old Varun Chakravarthy who is very skilled and has a lot of tricks up his sleeve. The deceptive bowler could trouble David Warner if the pitch in Vizag gets slower and lower.
