The club had a few of bad seasons, missing the playoffs in 2022 and 2023. As the former Indian bowling coach pointed out. This prompted a great deal of reflection and a targeted strategy to pinpoint areas in need of development.

“It has been pretty tough the last two years, we didn’t qualify and there has been introspection and we worked on areas that needed to be worked on,” Arun was cited by Cricbuzz as saying.

To improve their bowling, for example, they paid a staggering INR 24.75 crore to sign Australian pace sensation Mitchell Starc. The youth in the KKR ranks experienced a significant boost in confidence with the arrival of Starc. It fell to the tall left-hander to lead the attack with the bowl. Despite a slow start to the season, the Australian finished with 17 wickets and played well toward the end.
