KKR to finalise third wicketkeeper

The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) would select their third wicketkeeper within a couple of days, KKR coach Dav Whatmore said.

Besides Brendon Mccullum, the Kiwi wicket-keeper batsman who is expected to join late in the tournament, KKR have Bengal’s Wriddman Saha as their second keeper.

A decision on the third wicket keeper would be taken after consultation with team skipper and former India captain Sourav Ganguly, Whatmore told mediapersons after a practice session at the Eden Gardens.

Ganguly flew to Ahmedabad on Monday to play in the Vijay Hazare trophy final and will join the KKR practice session from Wednesday.

KKR had its practice session at the Eden with 15 players including Ajit Agarkar.

Whatmore hoped coordination among the players of the team would emerge once all the players were available.

Many players could not join the camp now as they are busy playing domestic or international tournaments.

Meanwhile, former Pakistani speedster and bowling consultant Washim Akram is likely to join the KKR practice session tomorrow.

KKR will feature in the inaugural match against Deccan Chargers in Mumbai on March 12.
