IPL 2024: Kolkata Knight Riders Full list of Players Retained, Released, Traded and Remaining Purse Ahead of IPL 2024 Auction | Kolkata Knight Riders Players List: Kolkata Knight Riders have released lots of players ahead of the IPL 2024 Auction as they want to revamp their squad after having poor performance in the IPL 2023 League Stage. They have retained Andre Russell for IPL 2024, despite him performing poorly for a couple of years for the franchise.
Kolkata Knight Riders look pretty unorganized, they don’t have quality Pacers, all-rounders and reliable batters in the top 4. Rahmanullah Gurbaz performed well last year but KKR kept exploring opening partners and they didn’t get the right one throughout the season. Hence, KKR will try to fix the gaps and will pick some quality players in their team.
KKR have available slots of 12 for the IPL 2024 Auction and out of which, they can pick a maximum of 4 overseas players. KKR will try to target both Indian and Overseas players in the auction to make a balance between slot and purse. KKR’s strength is their spin attack which will give them a slight advantage in the Indian conditions but In Dubai, it might be challenging for them.
Overall, KKR have good players but they need to add a few more to make their bench strength stronger for the next season. Kolkata Knight Riders have won two IPL trophies so far under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir. It will be a challenging task for the KKR to pick quality players in their team as some other franchises have big purse value hence they might go desperately for those players.
IPL 2024, Kolkata Knight Riders Remaining Purse:
KKR have a total purse value of 32.7 crores remaining, which is the fourth-highest purse ahead of the IPL 2024 Auction. KKR is expected to go for a few big names in the auction as they need quality players and also have a big purse.
