Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik-led team had won eight matches out of the 14 during the league stages.
However, some player’s performance was not up to the mark. Thus, Kolkata Knight Riders think tank can show the exit doors to these players who haven’t come up good for them.
Let’s take a look at four players, Kolkata Knight Riders could axe ahead of the next season:
Rinku Singh had a golden opportunity to cement his place in the KKR side.
The southpaw batsman was given a chance in the early phase of the tournament. However, the Uttar Pradesh player failed to come up good for the two times champions.
The left-hander scored only 29 runs in the four matches he played. Consequently, Singh got replaced by Shubman Gill. Thus, Rinku Singh could get released by the KKR team management.
