Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders were transformed from being perpetual underperformers to being two-time champions since they managed to bring Gautam Gambhir in their ranks. Gambhir’s stint ended the previous year as the former KKR skipper was bought by Delhi Daredevils. The

Bengal side will play their first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on March 24 at the Eden Gardens. The franchise will be led by Dinesh Karthik. Star T-20 performer Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, who have proved to be pivotal in KKR's success in the cricketing extravaganza, along with Chris Lynn were retained by the franchise.
