Kolkata Knight Riders did not have very good luck this year in the dream 11 IPL 2020 tournament. They won a total of 7 matches in this league.
They ended up finishing at the fifth spot. However, due to the net run rate, they were unable to qualify for the playoffs.
The franchise needs to take a look at their squad and groom them. This will help them to return stronger the following year.
Let us now take a look at the players that they will release ahead of the next year’s IPL so far.
(1)Tom Banton: English hard-hitter of Kolkata Knight Riders
Tom Banton came in this season of dream 11 IPL 2020 with much hype. However, he failed to impress in the match.
He could make only 18 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore. In both the matches against RCB, he failed to perform well.
As a result he might be released ahead of the next IPL.
Although an all-rounder and a captain for several teams Chris failed to impress in the tournament. In the match against Mumbai Indians, he was able to score just 24 runs off 17 balls in the match.
KKR might plan to release him in the next year.
(3)Nikhil Naik: Kolkata Knight Riders
One of the major reasons why the 25-year-old Nikhil might be removed the next year is that he is not fit.
He might be traded to Royal Challengers Bangalore due to his wicket-keeping skills.
Siddhesh Lad did not get a chance to perform this year. He was mostly seen warming up at the benches. He might be swapped for an all-rounder for the team.
Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals, or Sunrisers Hyderabad might be interested in taking him.
Sandeep Warrier has not been able to give his full potential performance up to date. Kolkata Knight Riders picked him in the last year.
He has been able to take just 2 wickets in the four matches played so far. This year he just scored 34 runs.
KKR might release him before the next season begins. To get the latest updates on dream 11 IPL 2020, Today Match Prediction 2020, dream 11 IPL 2020 team formation, and Toss Prediction 2020 stay tuned to our website.
