IPL 2024: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Full Squad and Complete Players List

The two-time IPL champions, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), had a disappointing performance last season, culminating in an unexpected 7th position finish. This setback prompted the management to make considerable changes to restore the team’s dominance in the league.

In preparation for the upcoming IPL 2024 auction, KKR made bold decisions regarding player retention and releases. They retained a core lineup with seasoned players such as Shreyas Iyer, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Jason Roy, Nitish Rana, and Rinku Singh. These players, known for their skill and experience, form the backbone of the team’s renewed aspirations.

In a move to revamp the team composition, KKR bid farewell to 12 players, marking a departure from their roster. Among the released players were Shardul Thakur, Shakib Al Hasan, and Lockie Ferguson, indicating a strategic shift in the team’s dynamics and new prospects for new talent acquisition.

A significant announcement from KKR was the appointment of Gautam Gambhir as the team’s mentor for the upcoming season. Gambhir, a former captain instrumental in KKR’s previous triumphs, brings invaluable experience and leadership to guide the team toward success once again.

The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made history in the IPL 2024 Players Auction by acquiring the Australian speed sensation Mitchell Starc for a stunning 24.75 crore. This landmark acquisition marked Starc as the most expensive player in the illustrious history of the Indian Premier League. KKR also obtained ten players during the auction, with each selection strategically geared at improving their squad’s depth and quality.
