The two-time champions also made some smart buys that included Sheldon Jackson, Harbhajan Singh, Karun Nair, Pawan Negi, Venkatesh Iyer. The Knight Riders’ decision to recruit Ben Cutting was a masterstroke since he could be an excellent backup for Andre Russell, who remained out of form in IPL 2020. Their performance rating is 8/10 after the IPL 2021 auction.
