The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are the two-time champions of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Men in Gold and Purple won the title back in 2012 and 2014 under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir. However, once Gambhir left, the team has tended to strain a wee bit.
Dinesh Karthik is a class act, but hasn’t quite been able to live up to expectations. The IPL auction for the 2020 edition took place on December 19 and KKR went hammer and tongs to pick the likes of Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins.
The upcoming edition is scheduled to get underway on March 29 and the Knights have plenty of work to do for redemption. They have quite a few players, who have been with the team and get hefty amounts.
In the article, let’s take a look at the salary of the KKR players in IPL 2020: –
1. Andre Russell- INR 8.50 crores
Andre Russell has been a key component of the Knights for quite a few seasons. But it was in 2019 when he came into his own. At times, the Jamaican Russell even threatened to win KKR matches single-handedly.
Last season, he was both the leading run-scorer and top wicket-taker for the Knights. The veteran also smacked 52 sixes to decimate oppositions. The team will be banking on their big gun even next time.
