Qualifying in the playoffs will not be easy, Sunil Gavaskar warns former IPL champions

Preparations for IPL 2024 are in full swing. All the teams are making plans for their strong combination. Meanwhile, the great former batsman of Team India Sunil Gavaskar two-time champion team Kolkata Knight Riders A warning has been issued for. It is expected that IPL will start at the end of March and end by May. Because ICC has released the schedule of T20 World Cup, which will run throughout June. Gavaskar believes that it will not be easy for KKR to make it to the playoffs in this season of IPL.

KKR has been champion twice

In the last five seasons, KKR has made it to the IPL playoffs only once in 2021. This time things have not changed much. Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports that playoff qualification is not going to be easy for KKR. But they have to do it. Because he not only has the experience of playing on those kind of pitches, but also has the experience of playing in the IPL for some time.

Gavaskar expressed confidence in Rinku Singh

Gavaskar praised the Indian batting quartet of Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh and Venkatesh Iyer. All of them are part of the KKR team. He said that I think experience is very useful. You know what pressure is and you know how to handle it. All four players have done it an extraordinary number of times. Rinku Singh especially has been tremendous in the last year or so.

Mitchell Starc became the most expensive player

Many records were broken in the IPL mini auction held in December last year. Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc became the most expensive player in the history of IPL. KKR included Starc in their team by bidding Rs 24.75 crore. Starc overtook his Australian teammate Pat Cummins after a few minutes in the auction. Cummins was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the auction for Rs 20.5 crore.

KKR made the most expensive purchase

KKR emptied half its purse to buy Starc. Despite this, this franchise bought nine more players in the mini auction. KKR made the biggest deal by signing England’s young fast bowler Gus Atkinson for Rs 1 crore. Now it will be interesting to see what the most expensive player of IPL does for his team KKR.
