IPL 2021 Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Full Squad: The team from Kolkata has an enviable list of all-rounder riches in Andre Russell – the belligerent Jamaican, Sunil Narine – a wily fox who has been a revelation with the bat, and Shakib Al Hasan – who has been vying for the ‘world’s best all-rounder’ title for some time now. And on their day either of the three can turn the tide in favour of Shah Rukh Khan’s men.

In the fast bowling department, KKR have the in-form Pat Cummins, and Kiwi Lockie Ferguson, who will be looking to carry his form from IPL 2020. And then there are the pace greenhorns – Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi.

The Knight Riders squad will gain a lot from the experience of seasoned campaigners like Dinesh Karthik and Harbhajan Singh. KKR will be lead by Eoin Morgan, but watch out for Shubman Gill!
