Kolkata Knight Riders won many hearts with their anthem ‘Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo Re’ which was launched in the first season of Indian Premier League. The tune is still familiar in minds of many KKR supporters. However, this IPL they have come up with a new anthem ‘KKR hai taiyaar’. Their official twitter handle shared the KKR anthem with caption ‘ We’re ready for the Purple fever #KKRHaiTaiyaa.’ The anthem starts with Shahrukh Khan back profile as the lyrics ‘korbo lorbo jeetbo re’ echo.

Kolkata did not retain Gautam Gambhir nor used the Right to Match card for him. Dinesh Karthik has been assigned the new role of captainship for KKR. Karthik played a heroic innings in the Nidahas Trophy final when he smashed six off the last ball to win it for India. With Mitchell Starc ruled out of the squad the team still looks well balanced. They play their opening game against Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 8 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
