The Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to start from March 22, 2024. The richest Cricket league in the world will start with the match between the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the tournament favourites, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Chennai. Meanwhile, talking about the 2-time IPL champions, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), they have made some strategic thinking ahead of the 2024 season. While big-name signings often dominate headlines, it's the bargains and underrated players that can often make the most significant impact. 

Let's look at three such players who could prove to be crucial KKR bargain buys for IPL 2024.

1. Raman Deep Singh:

Raman Deep

Hailing from Punjab and previously associated with the Mumbai Indians, Raman Deep Singh brings a wealth of experience and versatility to the KKR squad. His ability to adapt to different roles, be it anchoring the innings or providing crucial breakthroughs with the ball, makes him a valuable asset. Singh's past performances indicate his capability to handle pressure situations with ease, a trait highly coveted in the T20 format. 

2. Chetan Sakariya:


Emerging as one of the most promising talents in Indian cricket, Chetan Sakariya's journey from humble beginnings to IPL stardom has been nothing short of inspiring. The left-arm seamer's ability to pick up wickets consistently makes him a potent weapon in KKR's bowling attack. Sakariya's deceptive variations and ability to generate swing can trouble even the most seasoned batsmen, offering KKR crucial breakthroughs during crucial phases of the game. 

3. KS Bharat:


With the IPL allowing only four overseas players in the playing XI, the inclusion of KS Bharat provides KKR with much-needed flexibility and depth in their squad. Bharat's proficiency behind the stumps and his ability to contribute with the bat lower down the order make him a valuable asset for KKR. His experience of playing in various domestic leagues adds to his credibility, ensuring KKR has a reliable backup option in case of injuries or anyone's form deteriorates.
