IPL 2021: Good news for KKR; Harbhajan Singh checks into team-bubble: Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders’ latest addition in the spin department, Harbhajan Singh, checked into the team hotel here on Saturday afternoon as a few other players began their training at the DY Patil Stadium.

IPL’s fifth-highest wicket-taker, it will be for the first time that Harbhajan will represent KKR in the tournament. After going unsold in the first round, Harbhajan was bought by the two-time IPL champions at his base price of Rs 2 crore for IPL 2021.

A number of other KKR players have checked in at the hotel and are currently serving their quarantine, as per the BCCI’s guideline.

The likes of mystery spinner Varun Chakaravarthy, Rahul Tripathi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Sandeep Warrier and newcomer Vaibhav Arora have started practice for IPL 2021 under the watchful eyes of assistant coach Abhishek Nayar and Omkar Salvi.

KKR begin their season against Sunriser Hyderabad on April 11 in Chennai.

None of the teams will get to play at their home grounds this year which means KKR’s date with Eden Gardens will have to wait.

“Coming and playing at Eden Gardens is something that we take pride in and we enjoy. To be honest, not playing at Eden Gardens despite playing India is going to be the only con, if I could say so,” assistant coach Nayar said.
