London [UK], September 12 Morning India: Kolkata Knight Riders will sign USA’s 29-year-old fast bowler Ali Khan as a replacement for Harry Gurney, pending approval from IPL. Gurney has pulled out of both the Vitality Blast and IPL 2020 due to a shoulder injury.
According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, Ali’s signing — once approved — will make him the first American player to feature in the IPL.
Ali was part of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 winners Trinbago Knight Rider squad. It was the fourth CPL title win for the Knights. The right-handed bowler picked eight wickets in eight matches at an economy rate of 7.43.
