Ali Khan becomes first American in IPL

Fast bowler Ali Khan has become the first player from the United States to join the Indian Premier League after being included in the Kolkata Knight Riders squad. The Pakistan-born Khan replaces England’s Harry Gurney, sidelined by a shoulder injury, in the Knight Riders team for the Twenty20 tournament starting Saturday in the United Arab Emirates. Khan comes into the IPL after winning the Caribbean Premier League with the Trinbago Knight Riders -- the same parent company as the Kolkata Knight Riders -- who won all 12 matches to seal the title.
