T20 can be ruthless times and the entire fate of your campaign sometimes hinges on the final over. In KKR, fans have a team that is often wanting in pressure-cooker situations. There are numerous such scenarios, most etching is, of course, the 2021 final where they were well on to their way to the 3rd title before losing the plot. 

KKR might Target on Openers- Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, Quinton De Kock, Chris Lynn 

Kolkata has a big chance of roping in at least two of these four players at IPL Mega Auction 2022. The players will be on the wishlist of almost all the franchises given they make up multiple facets of the game. With Dhawan and Warner, KKR will have captaincy material along with two proven openers. In case they manage to buy De Kock and Lynn, thereto KKR will have a wicketkeeper and another option for the opening slot. 

List of Players KKR Can go for this IPL Auction 2022 

Jonny Bairstow (Wicket-Keeper/Opener)- Jonny Bairstow is a very good player as an opener. In 2019, he was with Sunrisers Hyderabad for the first time and the opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner performed well throughout the season. He scored 445 runs in 10 matches at a strike rate of 157, which included a century! He is probably one of the most consistent batsmen in the British Isles, especially in the IPL. With a price tag of 1.5 crores, he is worth every penny as you not only get a capable defender but a prominent thinker who is bound to add to the leadership group.

Dewald Brevis (Middle Order): Catch’em young! Brevis is just 18 and yet he has the temperament to bat at number three for KKR. Although it may sound a bit radical, check out his scores at the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2022: 138, 6, 97, 96, 104, 65 and 50

Shimron Hetmyer (Middle-Order): After Shreyas Iyer at four, KKR needs someone to play the perfect foil to the captain. ‘Hettie’, as he is known in the circle, has quite a rapport with Iyer. A look through his recent scores tells you how inconsistent he can be which raises the question of his price tag(Rs 1.5 Cr).

Shreyas Iyer (Middle order/ Captain): Was Shreyas Iyer really a good captain or did he have the privilege of leading Delhi Capitals. The team had big names and certainly a battery of fast bowlers which made the job easy for them, their critics might argue. Now is a good time to prove the opponents wrong. Iyer certainly displayed superb leadership skills but now he has a point to prove after being sidelined. In the 2019 IPL, he led a stellar campaign for Delhi and then came close again a year later.

Shahrukh Khan (Middle order): How can KKR ignore Shahrukh Khan? Well, jokes apart, Shahrukh Khan has earned the right to walk into any side (as a finisher) purely on his skills rather than his name. His strike rate of 142 is not for nothing. His last-ball six in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is the stuff of legends. And he continued that form in the Vijay Hazare Trophy where he accounted for scores of 42, 79, 32 and 66. Maybe that is the reason he hiked his price tag to INR 40 Lakh.

Liam Livingstone (All-Rounder): Livingstone belongs to the next generation of English cricketers who wouldn’t mind being a little unorthodox, however, he hardly looks so when he gets going. He is the most dominating batter in world cricket where and can quickly get into your skin.

Mustafizur Rahman (Bowler): Slow leg cutters. Yes, that’s the weapon that makes Mustafizur Rahman ‘the fizz.’ Back in 2015, as he unleashed these leg cutters against MS Dhoni’s men, the nation of Bangladesh was overjoyed. It was like they have found a national hero who has finally figured out a way to demolish the all-powerful neighbors. 

Shivam Dube (All-Rounder): A seamer-cum-big hitter. Sounds like Andre Russell, right? Wrong. We are talking about Mumbai cricketer Shivam Dube. Although he may not exceed Russell when it comes to hand power, he is certainly not very far below. At 50 lakh INR, KKR gets a solid number seven and someone who could be the second change or possibly a back-up to the likes of Andre Russell. Let’s be very clear here that he is not in the best form, but T20 is a game of chance. Anything is possible.

Trent Boult (Bowler): Boult is a fine T20 bowler, and 2021 was no different. With 23 wickets in 15 matches, the calendar year saw Boult entering a new phase of his bowling career. He has also fine-tuned his temperament over the years. For instance, in the big final, he was the only Kiwi bowler to take the attack to David Warner (Man of the Tournament). Although the team lost, he was at his menacing best picking up two wickets for just 18 runs.
