Dubai: The Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday (September 13, 2020) announced that Ali Khan has joined their squad in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and will become the first United States player to take part in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

“Your wait for the replacement is now over! Join us in welcoming the first US National to play in the Dream11 IPL,” tweeted the two-time IPL winners.

KKR’s head coach who has also played for the Kolkata-based franchise welcomed the 29-year-old and said, “Welcome Ali Khan. You have won titles for us at Trinbago Knight Riders and deserve your chance to do the same with us KKR.”
