Kolkata Knight Riders receive a massive boost as Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Tim Seifert land in the UAE. The trio landed in the UAE following their completion of the Caribbean Premier League. Andre Russell represented Jamaica Tallawahs while Sunil Narine and Tim Seifert were a part of Trinbago Knight Riders. Their teams qualified for the Semi-Finals of the completion. However, failed to qualify for the finals.
The trio has now landed in the UAE to join the IPL side Kolkata Knight Riders. The players are now in the IPL bubble and KKR will start their second leg of the campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi on September 20.
The trio is coming off fine form after the CPL. Moreover, Andre Russell recorded the fastest fifty in the history of the tournament during the course of the CPL 2021. However, fans hope they bring the same form in the second phase of the 2021 IPL in the UAE.
The two-time IPL champions, Kolkata Knight Riders are currently at the bottom half of the table. KKR has managed to bag two wins out of seven matches in this years’ IPL. However, they will look to turn things around in the second phase.
