Kolkata Knight Riders roped in New Zealand pacer Tim Southee in place of Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins. The 32-year-old represented Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in the past. The right-arm swing bowler is a veteran of 201 T20s and has taken 224 wickets with best figures of 6/16 at an economy of 8.30. In the IPL, Southee has played 40 matches and has taken 28 wickets with the best figures of 3/24.

3) Adil Rashid
Punjab Kings signed England spinner Adil Rashid as a replacement for Jhye Richardson.
