To form a roster of 14 players for the IPL 2023 auction, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) kept 11 players and traded three others from other franchises. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Lockie Ferguson, and Shardul Thakur from the Gujarat Titans and the Delhi Capitals, respectively, were swapped.
The majority of the 16 players that KKR discharged from their previous season did not play for the team. Under Shreyas Iyer, who was named Kolkata Knight Rider’s new captain prior to the start of the season, KKR finished eighth, winning six games and dropping eight.
Many of the players on the list of those who have been publicly revealed are known short-format performers, and some of them are anticipated to be in great demand during the IPL 2023 auction. There are others, though, that might not pique the franchisees’ attention and end up unsold at the future auction.
