After losing the finals against Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021 in Dubai, Kolkata Knight Riders will be hungry to go that extra mile this year under new captain Shreyas Iyer. Former Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer is KKR’s highest-paid star at Rs 12.25 crore. (FULL IPL 2022 SCHEDULE)
While the Shahrukh Khan co-owned IPL franchise managed to keep its core intact, KKR have also bought experienced campaigners like Ajinkya Rahane, Sam Billings and Mohammad Nabi in the IPL 2022 auction.
However, the wicketkeepers’ slot might be a concern for KKR as they have Baba Inderjith and Sheldon Jackson (both uncapped), and Billings (overseas) as their designated glovesmen. (KKR TEAM PROFILE)
