They are technically 4/4 ..
they even need Shakib as a batsman, remember they used him quiet up the order in IPL as well. And it's SA but spinners are equally effective here. A quality spinner is very much useful even in these conditions. The way Balaji was being hit today, you can't conclude that just any pacer is ok here.
I think Shakib is coming in from the next match, since Kallis is injured and he may not like to hurry into any match soon.
Anyway... KKR is on their way to a massive loss I guess...
