Kolkata Knight Riders Squad IPL 13
Kolkata Knight Riders played under the captaincy of Dinesh Karthik in the IPL 2019 and they’d love to carry on under his captaincy as he has done great a reasonable job during his tenure. With players like Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Lynn, Nikhul Naik, Lockie Ferguson and the likes, they had quite a strong squad last year.
Their initial pick at the IPL auction 2020 was the most expensive of the lot as they spent 15.5 crore INR to buy Pat Cummins from Australia. Can they come up with other similar names for this year’s IPL to play the tournament with the strongest possible side?
We’ll update the complete Kolkata Knight Riders squad here after the IPL 13 auction. Let’s see what team they put together for the event.
