With Ajinky Rahane and Aaron Finch released, KKR are on the lookout for an attacking opener to give them quick starts. This is where Lewis fits the bill. He is a free-flowing attacking batter who has historically given West Indies quick starts. He can be given the same template and the same role as KKR. Incidentally, it was his acrobatic catch against Lucknow that ended Kolkata’s campaign last year.
