The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League will be held in India from April to June 2023. Before the IPL 2023, the world will witness a neck-and-neck battle in the IPL 2023 auction, with all ten teams eager to get the best-balanced squad.
The Kolkata Knight Riders, led by Shreyas Iyer, had a below-average performance in the IPL 2022. They did not advance to the playoff round, finishing in seventh place with only six wins out of fourteen games. The biggest reason for Kolkata Knight Riders’ failing to deliver in IPL 2022 was a lack of team dedication. Let’s take a look at five players who the Kolkata Knight Riders might retain ahead of the IPL 2023 auction:
5 Players Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Will Surely Retain For IPL 2023
1. Shreyas Iyer:
Shreyas Iyer, the skipper of KKR, was the franchise’s most impactful batsman in the IPL 2022. The right-handed middle infielder scored 401 runs in 14 innings, averaging 31 runs per inning and striking out well almost 136 times. He was one of the players who exuded confidence and was able to provide enough team with much-needed consistency.
Since Shreyas Iyer was named captain of Kolkata before the IPL 2022 season, the franchise will undoubtedly give him another few opportunities to make an impact and lead the team to greater heights in IPL 2023.
