Former India batter Aakash Chopra spoke about Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) strategy for the IPL 2022 mega auction. The two-time winners retained Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy and Venkatesh Iyer.
Chopra stated that Russell, Narine and Chakravarthy have injury concerns while Iyer is inexperienced.
“Andre Russell, Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine are injuries prone, while Venkatesh Iyer has played just 10 matches. They need a captain,” he said.
He feels that releasing Shubman Gill was a huge mistake.
“Shubman Gill could have been a captaincy option as well. Releasing him was a mistake. Shubman has joined the Gujarat Titans for Rs 7 crore. They can bring back Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi. They will bid high for Shreyas Iyer; there is a possibility.”
