Only one week is left for the upcoming season of IPL to start. To participate in IPL 2024, players have started joining the pre-camp of the teams. During the upcoming season, everyone's eyes will be on many new faces, while some people who have returned home will also be kept an eye on. This time players like Rishabh Pant, Pat Cummins, Jasprit Bumrah and Shreyas Iyer are making a comeback. However, all eyes will be on Gautam Gambhir and Mitchell Starc. Both are making a comeback in Kolkata Knight Riders. This year Gambhir will be seen as the mentor of KKR

The team will have high expectations from both. Gabhir is expected to help KKR regain its lost glory. But there will be a lot of pressure on Mitchell Starc, who was showered with money during the IPL auction. He became the second player in the history of IPL to cross the bid of more than Rs 20 crore. He had left Pat Cummins behind. KKR bought Starc for Rs 24.75 crore. Starc has not played IPL since 2015. But as we get closer to the start of the season, Gambhir's expectations from Starc have become very clear.

Upon joining the franchise in Kolkata on Thursday, Gautam Gambhir said, “I have already said at the auction table that he (Mitchell Starc) is the X factor for us and I am sure he will perform well. And there is no pressure of price tag. I hope what he has done at the international level, he will do the same for KKR.

Gautam Gambhir has scored the maximum 3345 runs in 122 matches for KKR. KKR registered 9 consecutive wins in 2014 and became champions and achieved their first win against Mumbai Indians the next year. Under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir, KKR won the trophy in 2012 and 2014 but then finished seventh in the playoffs in 2021 and again in 2022 and 2023.
