New Delhi. Kolkata Knight Riders have made major changes in their team before IPL 2023. Shahrukh Khan’s team has released 16 players included in their team in IPL 2022. Among them are players like Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Alex Hales, Sam Billings, Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Mavi. KKR has added only three players to their team instead of them. For the rest of the players, the team will wait for the IPL auction.
