Arrivals Complete – Overseas players join KKR squad in UAE

The last flight with our overseas Knights onboard has arrived in the UAE. With the touch-down of Pat Cummins, Eoin Morgan and Tom Banton, our Knight Riders squad is now a complete family. All we are waiting for at this moment is the take-off of the most-awaited event of the year - Dream XI IPL! It starts in the next 24 hours and we can’t keep our excitement in check!

Our English trio, who just got done with the T20I series against Australia, will go into the mandatory quarantine before they join the rest of the team members. Our Indian boys had already reached the UAE on August 20 and started training under Abhishek Nayar and Co. Our Knights from the Caribbean Premier League – Andre Russell, Sunil Narine and Chris Green - touched down here at Abu Dhabi on September 12, and after a week-long quarantine, are all set to hit the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium for their first round of practice session today.

Head coach Brendon McCullum, who reached along with the CPL bunch of boys, is also out of the quarantine and will be taking up the charge today onwards. Ali Khan, our new joinee from the USA, will be joining the training today as well.
