KKR yearwise IPL preformance
Kolkata Knight Riders did not finish in the playoff spots in any of their first three seasons in the IPL, finishing dead last in 2009. KKR made it to the playoffs for the first in 2011 after the arrival of Gambhir, and he led them to the title in his very second season at the franchise. What followed was a disappointing season as Kolkata narrowly avoided the wooden spoon, but they bounced back in spectacular fashion to clinch their second title in 2014. KKR made it to the playoffs in three of their next four seasons, but have struggled to do in the last two seasons, with Dinesh Karthik and now Eoin Morgan at the helm.
