Kolkata: The team management of the Kolkata Knight Riders team today "politely" asked five of its players, who are yet to feature in the side's 14-member squad in any match, to leave the team hotel, in a move to cut costs.

Ranadeb Bose, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sourasish Lahiri, Yashpal Singh and Rohan Banerjee were "politely given the option of either staying at the team hotel or going home".

"It was clear what the team managment wants. Apparently coach John Buchannan feels that he has found his set combination and had no need for the fringe players," one of the players said.
