KKR Squad, Captain IPL 2024: Kolkata Knight Riders Players List After Auction, Retained Players, Overseas Players-All You Need To Know: Kolkata Knight Riders bought lots of players in the IPL 2024 Auction as they have released many players before the auction. KKR had one of the highest purse values in the IPL 2024 Auction, which is why they bought Mitchell Starc.

Kolkata Knight Riders bought Mitchell Starc for 24.75 crore and with this, he became the most expensive player in IPL History. The Addition of Mitchell Starc to the squad was a great move by KKR ahead of IPL 2024. In the Last Season, Kolkata struggled a lot with their pace attack, which led them to strengthen their bowling department for the upcoming season.

KKR also bought Gus Atkinson for 1 crore and his addition to the squad will give Mitchell Starc help from the other end. They added Ramandeep Singh for 20 lahks and Manish Pandey for 50 lahks and the addition of both players will strengthen their middle order but it will be challenging for KKR Team Management to pick the correct player in the Playing XI.

The Key Players of Kolkata Knight Riders are Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Jason Roy, Andre Russell, Suyash Sharma, Nitish Rana, and Mitchell Starc. KKR have lots of overseas players in their squad, which they might not have seen in the IPL 2024 Auction. Overall, KKR have a good squad for the upcoming edition and they will give tough competition to the other teams.
