KKR, IPL 2021 Schedule, Squad: Know kolkata knight riders' full schedule, team and all highlights

Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2021 Schedule, KKR IPL 2021 squad: Ipl 2021 preparations are over. Kolkata Knight Riders are also ready. Let us know all the important things related to KKR, the programme and team of the franchise.

Highlights

  • Shah Rukh-Juhi's Kolkata Knight Riders set for IPL 2021
  • Two-time champion KKR to take the field under Eoin Morgan
  • Kolkata Knight Riders to play their first match of the season on April 11

Kolkata Knight Riders (Kolkata Knight Riders) could not make it to the playoffs last season due to poor net run rate. Three teams had 14 points and Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad had a net run rate of 0.608 and The Mines 0.172 respectively while Kolkata's net run rate was 0.214 and they finished fifth.

West Indies' Sunil Narine and Andre Russell could not perform as expected for Kolkata last season. The Kolkata team consists of Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan who can replace top XI Sunil Narine. Shakib can give the team momentum in the middle order. 

Apart from the bat, shakib can also be useful for the team with the ball, especially in the opening match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai where spinners can be helped.

Andre Russell flopped.

If the team's ace Caribbean batsman Andre Russell flops, Kolkata have batsmen like Dinesh Karthik and captain Eoin Morgan who can be dangerous for any team bowler in the death overs.

Rana and Gill also have expectations

Nitish Rana landed as an opening batsman last season and is expected to play the same role this season. Kolkata also has Shubman Gill who has done well recently.

Fast bowler se one to one

Australia pacer Pat Cummins will take the lead along with young bowler famous Krishna. Apart from these, Russell is also an option in fast bowling. New Zealand pacer Lauki Ferguson could also be an option when he is in Mumbai and Bengaluru as compared to Kolkata.

"Our team is a balanced team," said Abhishek Nair, assistant coach of the team. I think we need to ensure that all the players are in the right frame so that they can do well in the tournament. "

The kolkata knight riders (KKR) team is as follows

Eoin Morgan (captain), Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Tim Sefert (wicketkeeper), Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shakib Al Hasan, Varun CV, Kuldeep Yadav, Pat Cummins, Lauki Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer and Pawan Negi, Sandeep Warrier, famous Krishna and Sheldon Jackson.
