There are only a few days left for the start of IPL 2021. In such a situation, all the teams are practicing in the training camp. The team of Kolkata Knight Riders is also in practice to perform better in IPL 2021. Let us know that KKR, which has won the IPL title twice, could not do anything special in the last season. In this case, the team does not want to leave this time. The first match of Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021 will be from Sunrisers Hyderabad. KKR played a practice match on Saturday. In this practice match, Andre Russell played a brilliant shot. Dinesh Karthik narrowly escaped injury on this shot. If the ball hit him, he could have been injured.
KKR has also shared a video of this practice match. In the video, we can see that Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik were batting during the practice match. Andre Russell on strike and Dinesh Karthik on strike not. When Andre Russell hit a forceful shot, the ball passed through him. Karthik backed away a bit and saved himself. If the ball was hit by Dinesh Karthik, he could have been injured. The practice match also featured the famous Krishna, Shubman Gill and Harbhajan.
Let us know that the previous season of IPL was not much special for KKR. At the same time, Andre Russell also failed to do anything special last season. Russell scored just 117 runs in 10 matches last season. Let me tell you that in the last season, Karthik had resigned in the middle as the captain of the team. After this, Eoin Morgan was made the new captain of KKR. Let us know that KKR batsman Rinku Singh has been out of the tournament. Actually, Rinku Singh suffered a knee injury. Because of this, they will not be able to play in IPL 2021. Now Gurkeerat Singh has been given a place in the team in place of Rinku Singh. Let me tell you that KKR could not make it to the playoffs last season.
