IPL 2023: KKR Strongest Playing11, Full Squad, Fixture, Captain, Stats, and more: Two-time title winners Kolkata Knight Riders have always come up as one of the strongest teams in every season of IPL. The team is historically known for its ruthless and extremely powerful hitting in the middle and death overs. Are they strong enough for this season? Are they capable of lifting the title the third time? Well, you will get your answer here. In this article, we will let you through the full squad, fixture, Captain, and KKR strongest playing11. Also, we will predict the position of the franchise at the end of the tournament.

At least for the first half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Kolkata Knight Riders will be without the services of regular captain Shreyas Iyer. After being benched at the beginning of the fourth and final Test against Australia earlier this month due to a lower-back issue, Shreyas is anticipated to undergo surgery.

In absence of Shreyas Iyer, KKR has announced NITISH RANA as the new stand-in captain for the IPL 2023 season. The team bought the 29-year-old middle-order left-handed striker, prior to the 2018 season, and has retained him on the squad ever since. With KKR, Rana has featured in 74 games while scoring 1744 runs at a strike rate of 135.61.

Prediction regarding KKR

1- New Skipper Nitish Rana will be the highest run scorer for the franchise

2- Shardul Thakur will be the highest wicket-taker for the franchise this season.

3- Despite a team having caliber all-rounders like Andre Russell, Sunil Narayan, and Shardul Thakur in the squad should be rated high, this team still may not be able to qualify for playoffs as the big names often fail in main matches and the team is overdependent over a few players.
