IPL 2021: Kolkata Knight Riders full squad and player stats

The Shah Rukh Khan-owned Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Rider just missed out on a Playoff berth in IPL 2020 by the smallest of margins. The Eoin Morgan-led side missed out on the playoffs spot on Net Run-Rate (NRR) as they had 14 points equal to those of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). KKR had a captaincy change midway during the tournament as Dinesh Karthik let go off the leadership duty for team's cause. The inconsistency hurt the Kolkata-based franchise as they blew out oppositions in one game and could score 84 runs in their whole innings in one. However, with the additions of Harbhajan Singh, Karun Nair, Shakib Al Hasan, Ben Cutting and Pawan Negi, KKR have filled their gaps and would be looking to end the trophy drought this year. Here are the full squad and player details of the KKR side in IPL 2021.
