IPL 2020 Auction: 3 biggest buys for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
- KKR splashed INR 15.5 crores to rope in Pat Cummins.
#2 Eoin Morgan ₹ 5.25 Crores
The World Cup-winning captain and one of the most destructive middle-order batsman will represent the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 2020 edition. His ice-cool nature and belief in hard-hitting cricket will bring some much-needed vigour to the KKR camp. INR 5.25 crores is a decent price for a player of such reputation and KKR will be extremely happy with this buy.
Eoin Morgan's first job with KKR will be to make the senior players feel comfortable in the dressing room as they seemingly did not get along well during IPL 2019. His second and probably his most important role will be to guide talented youngsters such as Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana. If everyone stays fit, the Kolkata outfit will be a difficult team to beat in IPL 2020.
