The first-ever Ipl match in 2008 was played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The first match created history at that time in which KKR scored 222 runs and win the first match with 140 runs. The star of the match was Brendon McCullum who scored 158 not out.

KKR in the first 3 seasons of IPL doesn't do well and didn't even qualify for playoffs. The charm of the KKR team rises from season 4 when the management decided to give a new captain to the team and that was Gautam Gambhir. Previously the team was maintained by Saurav Ganguly but didn't perform well. In that season Gautam Gambhir was the most expensive player in IPL for 11.04 Cr. 

KKR won 2 IPL trophies in 2012 and 2014 when Gautam Gambhir was the captain of the team. From 2018 Dinesh Karthik appoint as the new captain of the team.

As we talk about the KKR squad 2020, Andre Russell is the most powerful and important player from their side. Andre Russell carries many matches from loss to win for KKR. The team became stronger with Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins. The spin department is controlled by Kuldeep Yadav and West Indies bowler Sunil Narine.
