The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) narrowly lost to the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) final last season. KKR splashed cash during the IPL mega auction last month to gather a strong squad. Indian batsman Shreyas Iyer, tied by the two -time champion for Rs 12.25 crore, was also appointed captain by the MoW ahead of the new season which starts in less than a week.

Australian Test captain Pat Cummins, who was released by KKR before the mega auction, was repurchased by the franchise for Rs 7.25 crore at the IPL auction.

Cummins, who is preparing for the third and final Test against Pakistan at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, recalled sharing a dressing room with Shreyas during the 2017 IPL for Delhi Capitals (then Daredevils).

“Shreyas, I played with (him) in Delhi (Daredevils), we got along very well. He looks like a very calm guy and looks in shape at the moment. I’m so excited to go there, I have some people who close. my friends will play together, can’t wait, “Cummins said during a pre-match press conference in Lahore.

Speaking further about KKR’s overall business at the auction, Cummins said that the franchise made the right decision by retaining a core group of players and support staff.

“Really excited. It’s great because most of the squad can stay together. So most of the players and staff know right,” he added.


KKR will play their first match against CSK at the opening of the tournament on Saturday, March 26.
