Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) haven’t performed up to their expectations this year and they will be looking to rebuild the team again in the mega auction around the core. Andre Russell got back to his original form again while Pat Cummins stepped up to the party this time.

The Indian contingent looks unsecured and Shubman Gill had a forgettable 2021 IPL. Eoin Morgans’ captaincy has been questionable and the management might be tempted to bring in a new skipper in the mega auction. Here are 5 former players Kolkata Knight Riders should target in IPL 2022 auction.

5 Former Players Kolkata Knight Riders Should Target:

With Mumbai Indians boasting of a lot of Indian stars, it is going to be hard for them to retain  Suryakumar Yadav and Kolkata Knight Riders should have an eye on the batsman. Suryakumar Yadav is one of the versatile batsmen who can bat anywhere in the batting order and still be effective.

Suryakumar Yadav played for the Kolkata Knight Riders from 2014 to the 2017 edition and he was one of the rising stars of the tournament. His excellent performances in the last IPL earned him a maiden call up to the Indian limited-overs squad and he can play a big role for the Kolkata Knight Riders at the top of the order.
