The Shah Rukh Khan co-owned Kolkata  Knight Riders have retained their captain Gautam Gambhir and  mystery spinner Sunil Narine for the seventh edition of Indian  Premier League.      

Gambhir has led the team to IPL glory in 2012 and is  again set to lead the team for the fourth straight season  while Narine has been one of the biggest assets for the  Kolkata franchise.      

KKR CEO Venky Mysore said,"We are delighted that we have  managed to retain two of our key players. We hope to build a  competitive and exciting squad. The challenges of salary cap  deductions and the retention rules did not allow us to retain  more of our original team, who made us proud over the past  three years."      

KKR will have 38 crores of salary cap space and two  retention cards going into the auction in February.
