Kolkata Knight Riders reached the final of IPL 2021 and had a very ordinary season in 2022. The side finished seventh on the points table under their new skipper Shreyas Iyer who was bagged by the franchise for 12.25 crores.

KKR never found a proper playing combination and made as many as 21 changes throughout the season, the most by any franchise. The number of changes highlighted the inability of the management to find a perper playing combination. Ideally, they would need a top-order wicketkeeper-batter, an Indian middle-order batter and an Indian or overseas spinner to cover up all the possible loopholes.

Karthi played forKKR from 2018 to 202. However, he was not at his best for the franchise. Having moved to RCB and being entrusted the role of finisher, the veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman flourished for his new franchise. KKR should ideally target to get DK back in if there is even a slight opportunity of doing so. In Karthik, KKR can get a good keeper and also an experienced middle-order batter.
