Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2024: Kolkata Knight Riders won the IPL trophy twice under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir. The KKR team failed to perform well in IPL 2023 under the captaincy of Nitish Rana. The team was only able to win 6 out of 14 games. Due to this, KKR retained only 13 out of 25 players in the IPL and released 12 players. There is a big piece of good news for the KKR team ahead of IPL 2024. One of the remaining players is doing well in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and that player has done a great job. Let us know.
This player performed brilliantly
Kolkata Knight Riders’ star spinner Varun Chakraborty put in a brilliant performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. While playing for Tamil Nadu, Varun bowled brilliantly against Nagaland. Nagaland players couldn’t understand his balls and were out early. Varun scored 9 runs in his 5 overs and took 5 wickets. In addition, he also cast three maidens in his spell. Thanks to him, the Tamil Nadu team managed to win the game. Varun’s performance before IPL 2024 might have ended KKR management’s tensions over spin bowling. Varun’s return to form before IPL 2024 will be nothing less than a joy for KKR.
Showed strength in IPL
Varun Chakraborty has played 56 IPL matches and also picked up 62 wickets. His best performance was taking 5 wickets for 20 runs. He has variations whereby batsmen cannot read his balls properly and are dodged. Varun took 20 wickets in 14 matches for KKR in IPL 2023.
Tamil Nadu won
Thanks to Varun Chakraborty’s dangerous bowling, the Nagaland team managed to score just 69 runs against Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu reached the target of 70 runs without losing a wicket. Apart from Varun, R Sai Kishore took three wickets, T Natarajan and Sandeep Warrier took one wicket each in the match. It was only because of the excellent bowling of these players that the Nagaland team was unable to post a big score.
