KKR adopts safe path, to announce captain, squad in South Africa
Advertisement
#1
Kolkata (PTI): Apparently fearing a public outrage after Sourav Ganguly was stripped of sole captaincy role, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Monday said they will announce their skipper and squad for the Indian Premier League's second season in South Africa and not here.

After the conclusion of the six-day training camp in the Eden Gardens here, (KKR) Director of Cricket Operations John Buchanan refused to announce the squad and the captains stating that they want to keep all options open before they begin their IPL campaign in South Africa from April 18.

Interestingly, the development has further fuelled speculation that the Knight Riders think tank was yet to sort out their "differences" with Ganguly.

In fact, there is a confusion over the number of players the Knight Riders will be taking to South Africa. While Buchanan told media that it would be a 24-member squad, KKR chief executive officer Joy Bhattacharya said the whole squad of 29, including late inclusion Sanjay Bangar, who played for Deccan Chargers last season, might be selected.

"I don't want to disclose the names of the players who would be going to South Africa now as we want to keep all options open. We might take the whole squad which took part in the conditioning camp to South Africa. Nothing has been finalaised right now. The final team for KKR would be announced in South Africa," said Bhattacharya.
