IPL Team Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders


When Shahrukh Khan - India's leading movie star - co-purchased the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise, the country couldn't help but feel an similarity with the side. And when Brendon McCullum stormed into the competition with a whirlwind 158*, it drew a group gasp of admiration from fans of the sport across the world. If Ganguly helmed the side, then there was John Buchanan who powered the think-tank. But the team could not live up to potential.

In the 2nd season, suggestions of a multiple-captain approach drew a lot of argue but as it turned out, McCullum ended up captaining the side throughout. But the side's prospects did not improve. KKR ended the event pretty close to the bottom of the table. Ricky Ponting and Morne van Wyk have been bought out ahead of Season IPL 2010, while NZ Shane Bond has been bought at USD 750,000. U-19 player Harpreet Singh has also been picked for the tournament.
