Kolkata Knight Riders is one of the three teams to have won the IPL more than once. In their long and successful IPL history, they have played many memorable matches and have produced some of the greatest match-winners ever seen in the 20 over format.
Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Kuldeep Yadav, Robin Uthappa, and Sunil Narine are a few of the prominent players retained by KKR ahead of the upcoming season of the IPL. They also bought some of the key players – Carlos Braithwaite, Lockie Ferguson and Joe Denly – at the IPL Auction 2019 held in Jaipur.
The Knight Riders have a well-balanced team with the right combination of local and overseas players for IPL 2019. Also, KKR has the potential to destroy any team as they possess real firepower with the bat along with some quality bowlers.
