KKR’s squad was looking pretty half squad after Russell’s exit from IPL 2017 but after getting few valuable players in the team in the auction, it’s looking a well-balanced team.

“We were in a car with a couple of lads following the twitter feed. After watching the name with such figures was really unbelievable, it’s bizarre. How can a player get such amount of money to play for Six or Seven weeks, it’s very hard one to read” he said to New Zealand Herald.

Whereas, other Kiwi players also got good amounts like Guptill, Corey and Ferguson. Recently Boult performed pretty well in his home series against South Africa where he bowled some brilliant spells for his team.

“I’m not going for the money. The experience of playing there in front of Thousands of people is more exciting and will help a lot. It will help in growing my game,” said Boult.
