The two-time IPL champions (2012 and 2014) Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) also have some strong overseas cricketers who have the abilities to control the game and guide the team to the success.

The Caribbean all-rounder Andre Russell played a big role for the KKR in the last IPL season as he won the Most Valuable Player award for his incredible all-round performances. In the IPL 2019, Russell was the most run-scorer (510 runs) as well as most wicket-taker (11 wickets) for KKR.

Another Caribbean all-rounder Sunil Narine has played very important roles for KKR since 2012. While he can lead the bowling line-up with his controlled bowling performances, he can provide a powerful start as an opening batsman in the mandatory powerplay.

KKR have added English limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan for this IPL season. At present, Morgan is one of the consistent limited-overs batsmen, and the franchise is hopeful to see his great batting during the IPL 2020.

Either Australian right-arm fast bowler Pat Cummins or New Zealand right-arm fast bowler Lockie Ferguson will lead their pace bowling line-up during the upcoming IPL tournament.

Moreover, KKR also have the young English wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Banton, who can open for the KKR. Australian off-spinner Chris Green is another spin-bowling option for this team.

Talking about some strong Indian cricketers in this side, these names are captain Dinesh Karthik, left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, youngster Shubman Gill etc.
