IPL Retention 2021 | Talking points from KKR’s releases and retentions ft. Cummins-Narine and the Kuldeep puzzle 

Kolkata Knight Riders, for all the galaxy of stars, have been quite poor in the last two seasons of the IPL. KKR were one of the luckier sides last season with few games completely bottled up by opposition yet not making it into the final four speaks a story itself for the franchise.

Chuck, Marry and Frill | Who KKR should let go and retain ahead of IPL 2021

We’re not here to review KKR’s 2020 but let us put this out there: the best performance from anyone related to the franchise came from CEO Venky Mysore on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel. It is a nice interview, by the way. Pretty insightful it was.

Ravichandran Ashwin, sometimes, has the bad habit of getting obsessed with variations and he paid the price for his ‘experimentation’ today as he was dismantled by a raging Narine. Ashwin’s experiments did not go down well with Ponting, who fumed when the former’s ‘leg-spinner’ was hit for a six.
