IPL 2023: KKR Ropes In This West Indian Hitter As The Replacement Of Litton Das For The Remaining Season

One of the best franchises in IPL Kolkata Knight Riders has roped in West Indian destructive batter Johnson Charles for the remaining season of IPL 2023. Charles has been added to the squad in place of Bangladesh opener Litton Das.

Charles has joined the team for INR 50 Lakh and he will be serving the team for the remaining matches. Charles has played 41 T20Is for the West Indies where he has scored 971 runs and he was also part of the West Indian squad for 2012 and 2016 T20 World Cup.

The West Indian hitter has played 224 T20s in his career where he has got 5600 runs under his belt.

Few days back, Litton Das left the KKR franchise and returned home due to some family issues. Litton Das played only one game for KKR in this 16th edition of IPL where he scored four runs. He did not play in the initial matches of the tournament due to his international commitments.

When Das left the franchise, the KKR management issued a statement where they said,”Litton Das has had to return to Bangladesh earlier today (Friday 28 April) due to an urgent family medical emergency. Our wishes go out to him and his family to make it through this difficult time.โ€
