IPL 2018: Homecoming for these SRH players who were a part of KKR once
Will KKR pay for not retaining these former players?
After a thrilling last-ball finish in their previous game against Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad are now at the top of the able. SRH would want to continue their winning streak in their next game that will be played on April 14 at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
While it is an away game, there are few players in the SRH squad for whom it will be a homecoming as they previously played for KKR.
Shakib Al Hasan
The 31-year-old all-rounder from Bangladesh became a household name when he made his IPL debut in 2011. In the seven seasons that he represented KKR, he made vital contributions that helped the team win the championship twice in 2012 and 2014. He made 543 runs in 36 innings and took 44 wickets in 48 innings for his previous franchise.
KKR’s present squad lacks good foreign players and there are injury concerns as well. Had Hasan not been sold to SRH for 2 crores, his services would have been useful for KKR again.
