Kolkata Team Top Players

Below are the players in different categories that can be crucial to the team's chances in the 2022 season of the Indian T20 League.

Top Batters

    • Shreyas Iyer (C) Kolkata’s most expensive buy in the 2022 mega auction, Shreyas is a captaincy material and has done well captaining Delhi for a few seasons. In 87 games played, he has scored 2375 runs at an average of 31.67 and scored 16 fifties. The middle-order batter was in the Delhi squad from 2015 to 2021. Read more..
    • Nitish Rana Rana has been a vital cog in the Kolkata batting unit over the past 3 years. He has made useful contributions in the middle and often helped the team to chase or put up high scores on the board. Rana adds value to the side with an ability to stabilize the innings and with his part-time off spin bowling. Read more..


    • Sheldon Jackson A solid wicketkeeper-batter, Sheldon is part of the league from 2009 but never had consistent playing time. He made his debut in 2017 playing for Kolkata and played four games for Kolkata in that season. With no quality Indian wicketkeeper option in the squad apart from him, the 2022 season can be his chance to make his mark. Read more..


    • Andre Russell Russell is one of the oldest active members of the Kolkata team and has been with the side since 2014. He has the highest strike rate in the league and has the ability to win matches almost single-handedly. Russell is loved by the Kolkata fans and is going to be an important player if Kolkata is to win the title. Read more..
    • Sunil Narine Mainstay of Kolkata’s bowling attack for years, Sunil Narine’s batting exploits have increased in the past few seasons. Called for a suspect bowling action, Narine has redeemed himself back with his batting capabilities when he was promoted as an opener. The team has time and again put faith in his all-round abilities and will be looking to contribute big this season as well. Read more..
    • Venkatesh Iyer It was a memorable 2021 for the lanky hard-hitting all-rounder. Venkatesh was introduced by Kolkata in the UAE leg of the 2021 season and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. His splendid performances gave him a ticket to the play for the Indian Team. Iyer will most likely be opening the innings with Alex Hales this season. Read more..

Top Bowlers

    • Pat Cummins He will lead Kolkata's fast-bowling lineup in the 2022 season. He made his league debut for Kolkata against Chennai in the 2014 season and was very impressive in his very first season. The Australian Test captain is currently one of the best fast bowlers in international cricket and a reliable batter in the lower middle-order. Cummins has taken 38 wickets in 37 matches. Read more..
    • Varun Chakravarthy Went for an astonishing price of 8.4 crore at the auctions prior to the 2019 edition, Varun Chakaravarthy became an overnight sensation in the league. Deemed as a mystery spinner, he has several variations up his sleeve, and was picked up by Kolkata in 2020 to beef up their spin bowling department. He did not disappoint and picked 17 wickets in the season at an average of 20.94. Read more..
    • Umesh Yadav An important member of the Indian pace attack, Umesh is one of the fastest bowlers currently in the country. He can bowl 140 kph regularly and can give you quality 4 overs with the ball. Yadav has played 121 games and has picked up 119 wickets at a good bowling average of 30.08. He is coming back to the Kolkata side after three years. Read more..
