Dubai, Oct 18 (TIWN) New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert has been signed by Kolkata Knight Riders as a replacement for injured US pacer Ali Khan for the remaining matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

A report in Stuff had said Seifert’s domestic team, Northern Districts, had “confirmed” that the cricketer “was another absentee” (for the upcoming Plunket Shield).

Khan, who had become the first USA cricketer to be signed by an Indian Premier League franchise, was ruled out of the tournament on October 7. The two-time winners had signed Khan as a replacement for the injured English seamer Harry Gurney ahead of the tournament.

The 29-year-old was also part of the title-winning Trinbago Knight Riders squad in the Caribbean Premier League, which was played in August-September. The Pakistan-born American had picked up eight wickets in the tournament.
