Dinesh Karthik’s team will begin their campaign on April 11 when they take on David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
KKR won two titles so far in the history of the IPL. Both the titles came under Gautam Gambhir’s captaincy. KKR defeated CSK in IPL 2012 final to win their maiden title and they continued their winning formula in the 2014 edition where they defeated Punjab Kings to lift their second title.
Since 2014, KKR never qualified for the final and have been struggling to enter the top 4 on a consistent basis. Talking about their performance in the last season, they finished just outside the top 4 as they ended up in fifth place.
On the other hand, Sunrsisers dominated the 2016 edition where they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final. David Warner’s team were quite remarkable in all aspects of the game and they tasted their maiden title glory.
In the 2018 edition, Kane Williamson led the team in David Warner’s absence. Kane led the team quite well and steered the team in the final but lost to Chennai Super Kings.
