Kolkata Knight Riders Team Profile.

Kolkata Knight Riders is one of the most successful teams where they have two titles to their name out of which one came in 2012 while the other one cane in 2013. They also played brilliantly in the last edition as well where they finished in the top four and that too without much big names in their side. They utilized their young players well whether it was Shubman Gill, Prasidh Krishna or Nitish Rana, all of them did well and took their team to the next stage.

This year as well, they don’t have have much big match winners but they do have players like Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn and Andre Russell that can change the game at any moment. It will also be a big year for KKR’s skipper as well as he is still auditioning for the number four spot in the Indian team for the world cup squad and will need to do well in this tournament to seal a spot there.
