Kolkata Knight Riders are one of the most talented and popular IPL franchises and are known for their consistency in the league. They are a two-time IPL champion and made it to the playoffs six times.

Some of the greatest cricketing legends donned KKR's jersey and played for the franchise. However, they did not enjoy the kind of success they should have enjoyed, during their time with the franchise.

Fortunately, after leaving KKR, they went on to have great seasons with other franchises and made an impact on the team. Through the course of this article, let us take a look at four players whose careers blossomed after leaving KKR.

Moises Henriques entered the league when he was selected by the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2009 for $300,000. He got only limited opportunities as he featured in just 4 matches but has shown everyone that has the talent and skill to make it big in the league.

He was later traded to Delhi Daredevils in 2010, in exchange for Manoj Tiwary. The story was same as he only featured in one game and was not given chances to prove himself. After a decent season with RCB in 2013, he was picked up by Sunrisers Hyderabad and that changed his fate forever.

He spent four seasons with the franchise and quickly transitioned into their main all-rounder and contributed in every way he could to lead the team to victory. In 2016, when SRH lifted the trophy, Henriques played a key role, with both bat and ball, scoring 182 runs and picking up 12 wickets.

In IPL 2018 auction, he went unsold and pundits and fans called it one of the biggest blunders by teams that they did not opt for an all-rounder like Henriques.
