Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have declared the marking of Britain opener Jason Roy after all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan chose to pull out from the Indian Head Association (IPL) 2023 season. According to an IPL discharge, Roy has finished the paperwork for INR 2.8 crore for IPL Season 16 from his base cost of INR 1.5 crore. Shakib was the second marquee player to be out for the whole mission after captain Shreyas Iyer was precluded over a physical issue.

Knight Riders, double cross bosses, just marked one player as Roy yet had two players – – Shakib and Iyer – – precluded over the most recent couple of days. It hasn’t yet been affirmed in the event that the establishment is seeking to sign a substitution for Captain Iyer.

Roy, who was previously highlighted in the 2017 and 2018 seasons, last played in the 2021 season for Sunrisers Hyderabad. In 2021, he performed in a total of five games, in which he scored 150 runs, including a half-century. The 32-year-old player has played 64 T20Is for England, scoring 1522 runs at a hit pace of 137.61 with 8 fifties.
