Kolkata Knight Riders had a woeful season in 2022 where they could hardly deliver something for themselves with their batting unit being all over the place. Their bowlers had very little to show for either as wickets were hard to come by. Most importantly, their all-rounders were almost a now show as the impact that they had on the fabric of the tournament was almost near to zero.

The inclusion of Shardul Thakur would do a world of good for the Knights as not only is he a wicket-taker but he can bat strongly in the number 6 or 7 position, thereby extending KKRโ€™s batting unit pretty deep enough.

Until Kolkata lays their hands on a decent batter to partner with Shreyas Iyer in the middle, their woes would know no ends. They are a strong side and would be hoping to put in a staunch display to manifest their position.

Here is what Twitter had to say about Shardul Thakur

They would also be hoping for Venkatesh Iyer to return to his former self despite recovering from an injury. It was already proven that he can be a massive gift to any side if he gets going. Both Thakur and Iyer can also be a great bowling combination in the middle, especially considering the kind of impact this duo can have on the fabric of the contest.

Twitter was shocked, happy and sad at the same time as Shardul Thakur would be donning the KKR jersey for the first time in the antiquity of the tournament. They didnโ€™t miss out on letting the world know that they were all set to see the Lord play for Kolkata.
