IPL 2018 | KKR TEAM AND FIXTURES | PROFANTASY CRICKET

The Kolkata Knight Riders have always been stern contenders for the IPL title. The team from the east have won two IPL titles and with a completely revamped side this year is a third IPL title possible? The Knight Riders have made it to the playoffs in the last two seasons. However, this year they’ll find it difficult to make it to the top 4 with only 21 players in their squad. KKR team and fixtures are listed below.

KKR spent the complete budget at the auctions with Chris Lynn bagging the highest bid. The Aussie batsman was acquired for Rs. 9.6 crores. Mitchell Starc, who’s undoubtedly one of the finest pacers in modern cricket will miss the whole of IPL due to a tibial bone stress. The left-arm pacer was bought for Rs. 9.4 crores. Tom Curran has been picked as his replacement. While Curran isn’t that bad an option, Starc’s void is difficult to fill.
