Ali Khan, who is the part of KKR’s team, has been ruled out of the tournament after injury.
Ali became the first USA cricketer to land an IPL contract after he was signed up as a replacement for England pacer Harry Gurney who is also missing the league as he had to undergo a shoulder surgery.
“Kolkata Knight Riders signed up Ali Khan as a replacement for injured Harry Gurney. Khan became the first USA cricketer to be signed up by an IPL franchise. Unfortunately, Khan has since been injured and will miss the rest of the Dream11 IPL 2020 season,” the statement read.
Ali Khan was a part of Trinbago Knight Riders who went on to win the CPL 2020 without losing a match.
Meanwhile, KKR will take on CSK in their fifth match of the tournament today.
