KKR will look to win their third IPL title in 2017

After having an average IPL 9, the two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders will look to create history by becoming the first team to win the IPL thrice when the tenth edition of the tournament gets underway on April 5.

The Shah Rukh Khan co-owned franchise received a major blow to their chances ahead of the IPL auction as their star West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell was banned for one year by an independent anti-doping panel for violating doping codes. He failed to file his whereabouts for three doping tests and now finds himself out of the game till at least January 2018, which means he will not feature in the IPL 2017.


In his absence, the team management strengthened the bowling department in the 2017 IPL auction. They acquired the services Kiwi pace spearhead Trent Boult, England's Chris Woakes, Aussie pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile and Bengal's mystery seamer Sayan Ghosh in the fast bowling department. Apart from these names, the franchise also got Ishank Jaggi, Rishi Dhawan, Rovman Powell, Darren Bravo and Sanjay Yadav.


KKR final squad for IPL 2017 – Gautam Gambhir (C), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa (WK), Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Lynn, Umesh Yadav, Yusuf Pathan, Sheldon Jackson (WK), Ankit Rajpoot, Trent Boult, Chris Woakes, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rishi Dhawan, Darren Bravo, Rovman Powell, Sayan Ghosh, R Sanjay Yadav, Ishank Jaggi
