IPL 2020: Salaries of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

The two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions under the skillful leadership of Gautam Gambhir in 2012 and 2014, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) lost their form once Gambhir left. Dinesh Karthik, although a skilled player, has not been at his best as a captain. On December 19, for the 2020 edition of the IPL auction, the team was naturally extremely excited about the choice of Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins.

The next edition, scheduled to begin on March 29, will require the Knights to do their best. Powered by a few players, who have been consistent and obtained large amounts, things look promising for the franchise. However, only time will tell if KKR will achieve redemption this time.

Squad Strength: 23

Overseas players: 8

Purse remaining: Rs 8.5 crore
