Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday named Johnson Charles as a replacement for Litton Das for the remainder of the Indian Premier League. Das returned to Bangladesh due to a family medical emergency last week. The 28-year-old, who was bought by KKR at his base price of Rs 50 lakh at last year’s auction, was dropped after playing just one match against Delhi Capitals.
Charles – a wicketkeeper-batter – has represented West Indies in 41 T20Is, scoring 971 runs and was a part of West Indies’ 2012 and 2016 ICC World Twenty20-winning squads.
Additionally, he has played 224 T20s and has over 5600 runs against his name.
He joins KKR for Rs 50 Lakh.
