In the beginning, Kolkata Knight Riders seemed to be at the losing end of the championship. The first three years found the team to be far from winning the cup. But in 2012, they turned the tables and emerged as champions of the Indian Premier League. Having repeated their success in 2014, KKR gained more prowess in the fields and a stronger reputation in the league. But it is over 5 years already, and they are yet to claim back the championship. Do you think the Kolkata Knight Riders team would make it this year?

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS PREDICTIONS AND SCHEDULE
If history has taught us anything at all, then it is that predictions can be very difficult in IPL matches. Every ball is a game-changer and every player holds the ability to help their team win the game or cause their team to lose the match. Having tasted success by winning the championship twice, the KKR team knows strategies that work and those that fail. Karthik has had his own successes and failures with tactics in the last few years. In 2019, the team had started amazingly well only to plummet down through a series of losses after the first five wins. With Andrre Russel as their most prized player and budding cricketers like Shubham Gill, many fans have high hopes from this team.
