Oh, it’s been one helluva season of the Indian Premier League, and we’re down to the last few matches. Now is the time to cheer even louder for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Superovers, centuries, close calls - we've seen it in the IPL 2020. And it's been a unique experience for KKR and their fans. They’re not used to being in the bottom half. But we don’t have to wait to see what happens in the IPL qualifier, eliminator, semi-finals, and especially the finals anymore as the tournament, VIVO IPL 2021 has been moved to the UAE.

And by the way, here's something for before and after the match - basically, when you’re not watching cricket - a bunch of fresh and specially curated digital experiences to make sure you stay entertained even when you're at home

Kolkata Knight Riders has one of the most destructive batting lineups this season! We're looking forward to witnessing the likes of Eoin Morgan and Sunil Narine in the team. Not to mention power-packed playing from Andre Russell! Featuring Under-19 stars Shubhman Gill and Shivam Mani, and with three strike bowlers the Riders' armour is strong and how this season!

IPL 2020 - Season Overview

The IPL 2020 season did not go according to plan for the Knight Riders.
KKR switched captains mid-season, as Dinesh Karthik was replaced by Eoin Morgan

KKR ended up finishing 5th and missing out on a playoff spot by the smallest of margins! A 0.042 Net Run Rate lower than the team finishing in the last playoff spot.

In Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, they had two of the best all-rounders in this format, giving them variety and depth matched by very few teams. They fell one game short of the VIVO IPL 2018 final, beaten by a resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad side at the Eden Gardens. They have an extremely strong base with match winners in all departments and with the likes of Shivam Mavi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana and Kamlesh Nagarkoti set to play bigger roles, next season could realistically be the one where they capture trophy number three!

IPL 2021 - Auction Overview

Before kicking off VIVO IPL 2021, KKR's have made some additions.

Shakib Al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer and Pawan Negi all join in as KKR try to push up the table.
