The IPL Auctions bring in a lot of excitement among fans. The ‘Knighting Ceremony’ fan engagement activity was based on insights that fans are incredibly invested in team KKR and feel a sense of ownership with the team, hence they were asked to suggest players to be part of KKR.

The activity was launched on January 20, and fans could vote for their pick of the lot across 7 categories (Openers/ Power Hitters/ Pacers/ Spinners/ Wicket Keepers/ All Rounders)

Fans could also give their votes at various ‘polling booths’ that were created across different locations in Kolkata - Knighting Ceremony - Weekend Activity at City Center Mall 1 & 2:
