The IPL, which was suspended midway into the 14th season of the league in May owing to multiple COVID-19 cases in its bio-bubble, will restart in the UAE on Sunday.
It was KKR spinner Varun Chakravarthy and seamer Sandeep Warrier, who first tested positive for COVID-19 in May in the middle of the IPL 2021.
TKR head coach Brendon McCullum will miss the upcoming season of the Caribbean Premier League due to personal reasons.

Brendon McCullum hailed the Kane Williamson-led side for winning the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship.
The match practice that New Zealand are going to have leading into the final could just tilt it in their way, McCullum said.
McCullum admitted it was wrong on their part to take Varun Chakravarthy out of the bowling attack after the latter dismissed Virat Kohli and Rajat Patidar.
KKR coach Brendon McCullum said that as the coach of the franchise, he is trying to get all the players in his side to free up a bit and fully express themselves.
On this day, the first-ever match was played in the IPL, a battle between KKR and RCB at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
