IPL 2018 Kolkata Knight Riders | Indian Premier League

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS the name itself is associated with Glory, Grandeur, sportsmanship and obviously the celebrated Team Owner. The very first-time IPL starts its flagship project, we all become very excited as it has become a new opportunity for local players to play with the international players at the same platform. Kolkata Knight Riders consist of 12 knights who can build a castle to protect their glory as well can fight back to give tough competition. At the 2018 IPL auction, KKR stands in a good position, as they hold two times Title holder.KKR in this season has gone for the complete revamped side this time. From the players they bought, it was evident that they were concentrating on youth. They declined an opportunity to buy back KKR Captain Gautam Gambhir. They took players from Indian under 19 Squad. This time KKR has gambled on youth players and planned to shuffle maestros of the field. From the old batch All-rounder -Andre Russell and Spinner-Sunil Narine.

Strength of KKR in 2018 

The Most Important gamble is that they retain West Indies Off Spiner Sunil Narine, who has the ability to take wickets in hard moments, and slow down the run rate when required Which makes him one of the best bowlers. Narine has the reputation of a “mystery bowler”, due to the variations that he has on his off-breaks, and how he disguises them. In only 82 matches he has taken 95 wickets with a good average. They also retain Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla via the right to match and most important KKR have youngster players with a lot of energy and talent. They bought U-19 Stars Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti Were Bought by Kolkata Knight Riders.Apart From This They Bought Top Order Batsman Shubham Gill who Scored Three Fifties In u-19 With Only Four Matches.

A weakness of KKR in 2018

This time Gautam Gambhir has lost to the final auction in 2018.Its a big loss for KKR. After a big hullabaloo of getting rid of Sourav Ganguly, with Gautam Gambhir, the eyebrows got raised again. Now this gamble may cause damage or uplift the energy of rest players. Gautam Gambhir saw his team through to the victory target. But behind the expressive exterior, a shrewd brain was ticking. Every move was calculated, and they were all spot on, helping KKR restrict the loss.
