John Buchanan to select Kolkata Knight Riders team

Former Australian cricket coach John Buchanan arrived Friday night to conduct a three-day selection trial for Kolkata Knight Riders team ahead of the second edition of Indian Premier League (IPL).

The trials to be held at Eden Gardens on January 5-7 would select players from a pool of 40 which includes former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin’s son Mohammad Ashaduddin.

Ashad, 19, who is a right-handed batsman and bowls off-spin, has reportedly been recommended for the trials after he failed to get a break in the Under-19 circuit in Hyderabad.

The camp would also have Orissa players Basant Mohanty and Nataraj Behera, Maharashtra medium pacer Aditya Dole, Jharkhand captain SS Rao, Ishank Jaggi and Mumbai’s Vinit Indulkar.

“Buchanan and KKR captain Sourav Ganguly will screen the youngsters before finalising on the final list sometime later. There will be practice matches, fielding and nets. We want to pick the best lot, numbers don’t mattter. If we find five-six talented players we will rope them in,” KKR manager Joydeep Mukherjee said.
