Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils

The Kolkata Knight Riders (also known by the acronym KKR) is a cricket franchise representing Kolkata in the Indian Premier League. The franchise is owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta. The team is currently captained by Gautam Gambhir and the coach for upcoming season IPL 2016 will be Jacques Kallis, a former South African all-rounder, who also played for the team (2011-2014). Although the team has gained immense popularity due to its association with celebrity owners, it was surrounded with controversy and poor on-field performance through the first three years of the tournament.

Kolkata Knight RIDERS Team Squad

The home of the Knight Riders is Eden Gardens, the largest cricket stadium in India and the third largest in the world by seating capacity. They eventually became the IPL champions for the first time in 2012, by defeating Chennai Super Kings in the final and repeated the feat in 2014, defeating Kings XI Punjab.

The team’s performance, however, improved from the fourth season as it qualified for the IPL playoffs and made it to the Champions League Twenty20. The Knight Riders hold the record for the longest winning streak by any Indian team in T20s (14).

The leading run-scorer of the side is Gautam Gambhir, while the leading wicket-taker is Sunil Narine.The official theme of the team is Korbo, Lorbo, Jeetbo Re (We will do, we will fight, we will win) and the official colors are purple and gold. The brand value of the Kolkata Knight Riders was estimated at $86 million in 2015, the highest valuation amongst all eight teams by a margin.
