In Tata IPL 2022, every metro city has its own team, as Kolkata does. KKR or Kolkata is the cricket team representing the city of Joy, Kolkata, in the IPL. The owner of this IPL team is actor Shahrukh Khan, actress Juhi Chawla and her life partner Jay Mehta. The home ground for KKR is the iconic Eden garden stadium.

It is the only team that has gained immense popularity because of its association with celebrity owners. IPL started in 2008, and they qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 2011, which is a long time. In 2012, they became the IPL champions under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir. They again lifted the cup in 2014 and the list of longest winning streak; KKR is the only team from IPL who is listed on that list with 14 consecutive wins.

Korbo, Lorbo, Jeetbo Re (we will perform, fight, and win!) is their official theme with purple and gold colors. In 2018, the brand value of KKR was estimated at around $104 million, which is the second-highest after Mumbai Indians.

KKR or Kolkata Knight Riders has been a successful franchise in IPL, and in this season, too, they are fighting to make it into the finals.

Let’s talk about the team of this season. With niggle and some hamstring, KKR faces a major problem in preparing a proper playing 11 for the team. But still, they have some all-time best youngsters who are giving their best to win matches for them.

Here is the squad for KKR in IPL 2022: Andre Russell, Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine, Shreyas Iyer, Pat Cummins, Abhijeet Tomar, Sam Billings, Alex Hales, Ramesh Kumar, Mohammed Nabi, Aman Khan, Umesh Yadav, Nitish Rana, Shivam Mavi, Sheldon Jackson, Ajinkya Rahane, Rinku Singh, Anukul Roy, Rasikh Dar, Chamika Karunaratne, Baba Indrajith, Ashok Sharma, and Pratham Singh.
