Kolkata Knight Riders after a poor IPL season in 2023 have released a lot of players as their current squad consists of only 13 members. KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer missed out on playing the entire 2023 IPL edition due to an unfortunate injury, thus his return to the squad will add immense value to the side in the 2024 IPL.
Here, in this article, we will have a look at KKR's possible playing XI from the retention list in the 2024 IPL edition.
Openers: Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Jason Roy
