IPL 2017: Full List Of Players Bought By Kolkata Knight Riders & Probable Lineup
Kolkata Knight Riders have released their new theme song ahead of the IPL 2018.

Two-times Indian Premier League champions Kolkata Knight Riders would have walked into this year’s auction with the sole purpose of picking an apt replacement for their star all-rounder Andre Russell, who has been banned for a year for doping violations. And they will be quite happy to sign England all-rounder Chris Woakes.

The English star is yet to prove his mettle with the bat but given the form he is in right now, he can play an integral role for the Kolkata-based franchise in the upcoming season. Apart from Woakes, KKR bought three other all-rounders as they will look to become the first team to win the IPL title thrice.

Meanwhile, in the form of Trent Boult, they have bought a bowler who has the ability to check the scoring rate and provide breakthroughs at crucial stages. They have also bought West Indies star Darren Bravo and Jharkhand batsman Ishank Jaggi to bolster their batting department.

Here is the list of players added to the KKR squad:

Player Type Base Price Eventual Tag
Trent Boult Bowler 1.5 Crore 5 Crore
Chris Woakes All-Rounder 2 Crore 4.2 Crore
Rishi Dhawan All-Rounder 30 Lakh 55 Lakh
Nathan Coulter-Nile All-Rounder 1 Crore 3.5 Crore
Rovman Powell All-Rounder 30 Lakh 30 Lakh
R Sanjay Yadav Bowler 10 Lakh 10 Lakh
Ishank Jaggi Batsman 10 Lakh 10 Lakh
Darren Bravo Batsman 50 Lakh 50 Lakh
Sayan Ghosh Bowler 10 Lakh 10 Lakh

 

Considering the fact that KKR had retained their top-order for the season, their decision to buy so many all-rounders and a world-class bowlers looks a very wise one. The likes of Gautam Gambhir, Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Robin Uthappa, Shakib Al Hasan, and Yusuf Pathan have been part of the franchise for quite some time now and signing another batsman would have only disturbed the batting composition.

Here is the full squad:

Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Lynn, Umesh Yadav, Yusuf Pathan, Sheldon Jackson, Ankit Singh Rajput, Andre Russell,Trent Boult, Chris Woakes, Rishi Dhawan , Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rovman Powell , R Sanjay Yadav , Ishank Jaggi, Darren Bravo , Sayan Ghosh 

Here is KKR’s probable lineup for the upcoming season:

Gautam Gambhir
Robin Uthappa
Manish Pandey
Yusuf Pathan
Shakib Al Hasan
Suryakumar Yadav
Chris Woakes
Piyush Chawla
Sunil Narine
