By India Today Web Desk: Indian Premier League franchise Kolkata Knight Riders kept busy in the trade window picking up Shardul Thakur from Delhi Capitals. The Indian al-rounder, well known for his ability to swing the ball away from the right-hander and some handy lower-order hitting is set to play for the Kolkata side in the 2023 edition of the tournament.

“Shardul Thakur has been traded from Delhi Capitals to Kolkata Knight Riders for the upcoming TATA IPL 2023. The all-rounder was bought by the franchise for INR 10.75 crore in the 2022 TATA IPL Auction. He played 14 matches and picked 15 wickets, including his career-best figures of 4/36 and scored 120 runs in the last edition,” the BCCI said in a press release.

“Emerging all-rounder Aman Khan has been traded to Delhi Capitals from Kolkata Knight Riders. Aman, who made his IPL debut last season for KKR was acquired for INR 20 Lakh in the 2022 TATA IPL Auction,” it further added.

Kolkata Knight Riders have been rebuilding after their below-par 2022 campaign and as things stand, have bought three players – Lockie Ferguson, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Shardul Thakur to bolster all departments. The team could go on to make several other changes to free up their purse for the next edition of the IPL.

Shardul played 14 mathes in the 2022 season of the IPL. The all rounder scored 120 runs and took 15 wickets.
