- Andre Russell – was a player retained by the KKR Team 2022 for Rs.12 Crore. As we all know that Andre is a hard working player and is someone who manages to achieve more records and scores each time he enters the ground. Andre is from Jamaica and made his ODI debut in 2011 world cup against Ireland. He has been in the team since 2014. It’s not just his batting ability that amazed people; in 2016 he won 2 Man of the Match awards for his bowling. He managed to take 15 wickets that season even though his run rate was low. The records he has made is a long list and remarkable. We could go on and on but we are ending it with one more of his achievement. In 2018 , when he came back to IPL after his 1 year ban from the game, Russell took a score of 300 runs and more than 13 wickets that season making his mark once again after a year break.
- Shreyas Iyer – was bought from the auction as the highest paid player on the team for Rs.12.25 Crore and he was also made the KKR Team 2022 Captain for this year’s IPL Tournament. Shreyas was noticed at a very young age probably not even in his teens when he was spotted timing strokes against pacers twice his age and height. He scored a 297 runs in 3 innings at a Bradman-esque with an average rate of 99. Because of his strike rating he was even being compared to the legends like Virender Sehwag for his fearless stroke-play. Shreyas was the highest earning uncapped player of the 2015 auction. In 2017 he scored 336 runs with the highest score rate of 96 and in 2018 proved to be consistent throughtout the season earning him the captaincy of delhi team after Gautam Gambhir dropped himself from the team.
- Venkatesh Iyer – was also one of the retained player for the team for Rs.8 Crores. Venkatesh made his debut last year were he scored 370 runs and took 3 wickets in 10 games last season. He was last year’s IPL surprise making his way through KKR with his powerful batting rampage against some of the world’s finest bowlers.
