IPL 2020: Salaries of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players

The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are the two-time champions of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Men in Gold and Purple won the title back in 2012 and 2014 under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir. However, after Gambhir left, the team has tended to strain a wee bit.

Dinesh Karthik is a classy player but hasn’t quite been able to live up to the expectations. The IPL auction for the 13th IPL season took place in December last year and the Knight Riders went hammer and tongs to pick the likes of Pat Cummins and Eoin Morgan.


Here are the key numbers for KKR after the IPL 2020 auction:

Squad Strength: 23


Overseas players: 8

Players bought in the auction: 9 [Chris Green, Eoin Morgan, M Siddharth (uncapped), Nikhil Naik (uncapped), Pat Cummins, Pravin Tambe (uncapped), Rahul Tripathi (uncapped), Tom Banton, Varun Chakravarthy (uncapped)]

Purse remaining: Rs 8.5 crore
