Kolkata Knight Riders had a terrible 2023 season, as the Kolkata-based franchise managed to win only six matches and register eight losses. The team finished seventh in the standings in the 16th edition and failed to perform as a unit under Nitish Rana’s captaincy. The 2024 season will have Shreyas Iyer returning to don the captaincy hat, and the team will aim to change their fortunes by at least making it to the playoffs.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz joined the KKR camp in 2023 and played a few decent innings for his side. In the new edition, the management would want him to come up with more powerful knocks. The young batter played 11 matches in IPL 2023 and scored 227 runs. Gurbaz is known for his aggressive batting style. The Afghan, who recently featured in the ILT20 for Dubai Capitals, played a match-winning knock of 81 runs off 39 deliveries.
