KKR name Phil Salt as replacement for Jason Roy

Kolkata, (UNI) Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday named Phil Salt as a replacement for Jason Roy after the latter pulled out of the upcoming TATA IPL 2024 owing to personal reasons.

Having remained unsold in the auction after representing Delhi Capitals last year, this will be Salt’s second season in the IPL.

Bought at his reserve price of Rs 1.5 crore, the aggressive wicketkeeper batsman from England scored two consecutive T20I centuries against the West Indies in December last year. His 48-ball century in the 4th T20I at Trinidad is also the joint-fastest for England.
