Kolkata Knight Riders is the team who got failed in the concluded edition due to inconsistent performance which led them in a total scenario over other’s teams losing dependence and the net run rate tale. But heading towards the 14th edition, they seems to be much determinant over selection and released few players from the team.
In the last season an unexpected call was also seen took by their ex skipper Dinesh Kartik who quit the captaincy spot and gave it to England Captain Eoin Morgan in the mid season. But it didn’t gave much satisfaction as team was far away from the playoff spot. In the retain list they has retained players like Dinesh Kartik, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell who are crucial and core players for the franchise.
In the coming auction they definitely need those players who can uproot the skills more and those are as follows:
1] Krishnappa Gowtham
The all rounder has been released from the Kings XI Punjab due to least effected performance but with his immense talent if Kolkata buys him then he can be used as the sixth bowler and back-up bowler when team needs the most. He can contribute to the team with both bat and ball.
2] Shivam Dube
Another Indian All rounder who can be an asset for the team as an option with both bat and ball. Right now he has been released from the Royal Challengers Bangalore due to his unexpected performance from last two years. His presence in Kolkata Knight Riders Franchise can keep team more balanced in the down order.
3] Mujeeb Ur Rahman
As everyone knows last year, Sunil Narine was expelled from few matches due to the unorthodox bowling action but if Young Afghan spinner comes to hunt then, he can be an asset for the team and can form a good partnership in bowling unit with Indian spinners like Varun Chakravarthy and Kuldeep Yadav.
