IPL Kolkata Knight Riders 2017 Squad
KKR squad for ipl 2017 is placed here. Kolkata Knight Riders were unarguably one of the most talented sides last season in the Indian Premier League. Having won the tournament twice already, they came in this edition looking mighty strong to repeat their previous feats.
Kolkata Knight Riders Players Released Ahead of IPL 2017: John Hastings, Colin Munro, Morne Morkel, Jason Holder, Brad Hogg, Jaydev Unadkat, Shaun Tait, R Sathish, Manan Sharma
The list of Kolkata Knight Riders retained players by the team is placed below. The team has got a pretty well balanced squad, which didn’t succumb to injuries that often. The lads were being led by Gautam Gambhir on the field, while their former batsman Jacques Kallis coached the boys. Gambhir’s role as a skipper and batsman is certainly commendable, given that he played a crucial part in team’s journey to the playoffs. The team name Laxmipathy Balaji as their bowling coach.
In the 15 innings he played, he managed to score 501 runs, making him the fourth highest scorer in the league. His opening partner Robin Uthappa did a great job in supporting his teammate, as his runs tally stands at 394 runs, Apart from them, Yusuf Pathan too did a terrific job, who scored 361 runs in 13 innings. Having single-handedly taken his side to wins on more than one occasion, we can certainly expect Pathan to play for the Riders next season too.
It is certainly hard to pinpoint where it all went wrong for them, but it is fair to say that they played as a team and went down as a team. Their bowling attack has been quite impressive, given that it boasts of spinners such as Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla, who share 22 wickets among them. Andre Russell remained to be the highest wicket taker with 15 wickets, while Morne Morkel and Umesh Yadav remained at 10 wickets each.
Shakib Al Hasan didn’t really prove his worth as an all rounder, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him play for some other franchise next season. Nonetheless, given the form of the players, the Riders haven’t got that much to worry about on their path to win the third title. Jacques Kallis will definitely take into account the errors of his side, and work on them to get a well polished team. IPL 2017 KKR team squad is placed below.
