KKR Team 2023

The franchise has gained immense popularity due to ownership by famous Bollywood personalities. One of the most well-liked teams in the competition, the franchise was acquired in 2008 for approximately US$75.09 million (roughly Rs 262.5 crore). KKR has been part of the IPL tournament since its launch season in 2008. They had held the IPL trophy in 2012 and 2014 and had also ended as runners-up in IPL 2021 season.

Under Gautam Gambhir, KKR made their first playoff appearance in 2011. Along with Jacques Kallis, Yusuf Pathan emerged as a crucial player for the team. Sunil Narine and Robin Uthappa were recent additions that helped KKR win their first championship in 2012. They repeated as champions in 2014, the first year they included Andre Russell in their lineup. The following three years held a lot of potentials, but they fell short of helping KKR win another championship, and Gambhir was let go before the 2018 auction.
