IPL 2020: Kolkata Knight Riders’ Squad After Retention Deadline
Can Kolkata improve their team heading into the next season of the IPL?
Along with Chennai and Mumbai, Kolkata is one of the few teams to have enjoyed success in the IPL. The winners from 2012 and 2014 have always been run well and usually compete for the title every year.
