IPL 2022: Kolkata Knight Riders Squad and Players List

IPL 2022: Kolkata Knight Riders Squad and Players List.  It was a very different story for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on day two of the blockbuster auction ahead of the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL).

They signed Alex Hales, Sam Billings, Mohammad Nabi, and Ajinkya Rahane among others. After a two-year absence, Pat Cummins, KKR’s most expensive player, was re-acquired at the start of the auction. Iyer will be the team’s captain following a hefty purchase.

It was KKR’s decision to bring in Nitish Rana. The other two players selected were Shivam Mavi and Sheldon Jackson. In order to achieve the team’s minimal requirement of 18 players while preserving the squad’s strength, KKR had to re-evaluate its strategy on day one.

The fact that KKR chose Ajinkya Rahane to open the day was a sign of the team’s approach for the remainder of the day. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because they were able to recruit several players at their basic costs, including Billings, Chamika Karunaratne, Hales, and Nabi as well as Umesh, despite going all out for Singapore-born Australian Tim David.
