England cricketer Phil Salt has become a revelation for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2024. Drafted in as a replacement for injured Jason Roy, Salt has grabbed his opportunity with both hands, emerging as a key player for the franchise.

In just nine innings, the aggressive batsman has amassed a staggering 392 runs at a mind-boggling strike rate of 180.65. His explosive batting style has been a major factor in KKR’s success this season.

Salt’s IPL journey with KKR began with a bang – a half-century against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). He followed it up with two more well-paced fifties before exploding for his career-best knock of an unbeaten 89 against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). During his 47-ball blitz, Salt smashed 14 fours and 3 sixes, showcasing his power-hitting prowess.

Most recently, Salt anchored KKR’s chase against Delhi Capitals (DC) with a brilliant 33-ball 68, guiding his team to a comfortable win and consolidating their second position in the IPL 2024 points table.
