I hope Shak will play the next match but won't be surprised if they pick another Tom Dick Harry type player ahead of Shakib. It's KKR after all..
They only have 6 overseas players in their squad. If Kallis is out, the only overseas replacement available are Shakib and RtD. Or they could go with an Indian which I don't see it happening.
