Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2011 Team : KKR Squad for IPL Season 4

IPL season 4 will start from April 8, 2011 and so you can really look forward to Kolkata Knight Riders serving as your favorite team despite the earlier failures of the squad. As per the rules, any IPL team can have 4 of the players that were in earlier seasons of IPL tournaments. KKR and ShahRukh Khan are in no mood to retain the captain Sourav Ganguly anymore. At present, the only retained player who has also signed a new contract for the Kolkata Knight Riders is the very famous Chris Gayle.

Sourav Ganguly, the captain of this team from three consecutive seasons does not figure in squad in any capability with Delhi’s very popular Gautam Gambhir who was bought for the record of $2.4 million, taking over reins for the 2011 IPL tournament.

Kolkata Knight Riders chose not to have a single player in order to revamp their team completely in contract to the Chennai Super Kings who retained 4 players including Suresh Raina, Alie Morkel, Murali Vijay and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Being the very first match of IPL 4, it is early to judge the squads on basis of their names or player list however it is assumed that the Kolkata Knight Riders might perform better than the earlier seasons.
