KKR IPL 2021 Auction News: Complete Players Details, Retained Players, New Buys

KKR

Kolkata Knight Riders are reckoned as one of the most popular franchises in the Indian Premier League. They have won two trophies since the tournament came into existence. But, in the last couple of seasons, they have poorly failed in living up to the fans’ expectations. In the previous edition, KKR gave the charge of the side to Eoin Morgan and he flared as a skipper. But he failed in making KKR qualify into the playoffs. This is the reason why Kolkata Knight Riders went all-guns-blazing in the IPL 2021 auction.

They left no stone unturned in injecting firepower in the side. KKR came with a perfect strategy and managed to grab the services of their first-choice picks. They splashed a total of INR 7.55 Crores in the Indian Premier League 2021 auction in order to grab the services of Shakib Al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Harbhajan Singh, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer, Pawan Negi.
