Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have signed New Zealand fast bowler Team Saudi for the Indian Premier League season starting September 19 in the UAE. Australia’s Pat Cummins, who dropped out of the IPL for personal reasons, has been replaced by Saudi.

Saudi, who has taken 603 wickets in 305 international matches for New Zealand, has been included in the squad. Cummins was bought for Rs 15 crore 50 lakh for the IPL 2020 season and was a key member of the team. He played all seven matches for the team and scored 93 runs in addition to taking nine wickets.
