KKR players should seek to buy at IPL auctions



Kolkata Knight Riders was one of IPL's surprise artists this year. KKR won the IPL twice and an addition of fast players helped them lift 3rd in 2019.


One of the most exciting teams in the tournament, KKR had a phenomenal IPL 11 in which they finished third in the championship. After starting as underdogs, the team led by Dinesh Karthik performed brilliantly, with the ancient weapons leading the way to the franchise. While former team loyalists, such as Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Andre Russell and Kuldeep Yadav, did well and guided KKR to the semi-final, the new was disappointed.

That forced the team to release up to eight players before the auctions in the coming months – with most being faster. After leaving Mitchell Starc, Vinay Kumar, Javier Searles, Mitchell Johnson and Tom Curran, KKR will target the fastest players, especially if the tournament is held in South Africa.

The Kolkata Knight Riders have only 13 players in the roster today and can buy another 12 players – seven Indians and five foreign cricket players in upcoming IPL auctions. Here are the players that Shah Rukh Khan's team would have wanted.

Oshane Thomas stood out in the newly completed series between the West Indies and India, bothering the Indian beaters with their pace and skip. He upset the Indian releases throughout his swing, and it came as an exciting prospect for the West Indies. He was impressive at the T20I game at Eden Gardens, where he managed to scramble 2 wickets for 21 races.

With the surface at Eden Gardens, the home of KKR, helping the Pacers in recent seasons, Thomas could be a real threat. KKR also needs a tearaway peacemaker, and with nearly 15.2 crores in their account, they are likely to leave and bid for western India.

With extra rhythm, Lockie Ferguson can be a watershed in the KKR unit. Like Thomas, the Kiwi fast-bowler is an excellent player, who is quite effective at powerplays.

Lockie Ferguson

Against Pakistan in the newly completed series, he constantly bothered the rival layers with his straighter deliveries and shorter balls, which were played at a tremendous rate. Their safety and length variations could be a big plus for the KKR unit at Eden Gardens.

The captain of Bengal had a disastrous IPL 2018 for Kings XI Punjab, scoring just 47 races in 5 games. However, he had been the key element of the Rising Pune Supergiant's batting unit in 2017, with his efforts guiding the team to the finals. In 15 games in 2017, Tiwary racked up 324 races with a hit rate of 137.28.

Manoj Tiwary

One issue that plagued KKR this season was Robin Uthappa's lack of form throughout. With Chris Lynn likely to miss a big part of the tournament next season due to the World Cup, the team will need an experienced pro at the top. With Tiwary familiar with the conditions of Eden Gardens too, KKR could very well apply for it.

The player had been with KKR in 2016 and therefore will be familiar with the conditions offered by Edens. With variations and left arm rhythm, it will be an important element to the side if you decide to acquire their services.

Unadkat set fire to IPL 2017, gaining more than 20 wickets for the RPS, meaning that Rajasthan has disbursed almost 11.5 crores this season to take it on board. However, he has massively disappointed and is back in the pool, which allows KKR to pitch for him.

With the franchise without an experienced Indian sailor, Unadkat may be a player they'll be looking for.

With Lynn probably absent from much of IPL, KKR could resort to Hashim Amla from South Africa as a backup opener. His T20I records speak for themselves – he hit 1277 races at a hit rate of 132.06 and in 16 IPL games, he scored a brilliant rate of 141.76.

Hashim Amla

With Uthappa prone to inconsistencies, Amla may be the anchor the team has been looking for at the top.
