Ishan Kishan: The dynamic top-order batter was given the license to kill in the last game and made it count emphatically with a stunning onslaught to turn around his wretched form. The SRH bowling will be to his liking.

Umran Malik: The right-arm quick recorded the fastest ball bowled by anyone in the season against Royal Challengers Bangalore and has earned rave reviews from all quarters.
