KKR announced the replacement for Gus Atkinson

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season is almost approaching, and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have made a big announcement about their roster. They have unveiled the player who will take Gus Atkinson's spot.

In the wake of finishing seventh in the IPL 2023 points standings, the Knight Riders are working hard to prepare for an exciting and competitive season this year. The team's deliberate purchase of the substitute player demonstrates their dedication to bolstering their roster and filling any possible holes in their starting lineup. Following Atkinson's unannounced withdrawal, KKR moved quickly to cover for his loss, signing fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera of Sri Lanka for a reserve fee of INR 50 lakh. The 32-year-old, who is well-known for his intense speed and capacity to confuse hitters with seam and swing movements, offers the team a plethora of IPL experience.
