IPL 2023: Sunil Narine retained, check the KKR’s updated retention list

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), under Shreyas Iyer, had a mixed season in IPL 2022 as they could not qualify for the playoffs.

However, there were a few really good performers and the management will look to keep those players with the squad. Clarity on the same will be given when the Kolkata-based franchise announces its retention list.

Kolkata Knight Riders have reportedly retained Sunil Narine. The Caribbean all-rounder has been a long-serving KKR player.

Ahead of the IPL 2023 auction, KKR have decided to stick with the Caribbean all-rounder who has been a long-servant of the franchise.

Before finalising their squad, and submitting their retention list to BCCI on November 15, KKR have made some bold moves as they traded Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Lockie Ferguson from Gujarat Titans (GT).

Kolkata Knight Riders have also made the most high-profile trade involving an Indian player as they secured the services of Shardul Thakur from Delhi Capitals.

That being said, reports suggest that the Kolkata-based franchise will be without two overseas players next season, in Sam Billings and Pat Cummins. They have also reportedly parted ways with Shivam Mavi.

Kolkata Knight Riders probable retentions:

Andre Russell, Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Sheldon Jackson, Ajinkya Rahane, Rinku Singh, Anukul Roy, Rasikh Dar, Chamika Karunaratne, Baba Indrajith, Ashok Sharma, Pratham Singh, Abhijeet Tomar, Alex Hales, Ramesh Kumar, Mohammed Nabi, Aman Khan, Umesh Yadav.
