IPL Matches Featuring Kolkata Knight Riders

Leave a Comment
Kolkata Knight Riders, led by Sourav Ganguly, finished sixth in the previous edition of IPL held in India. The Knight Riders got off to an unbelievable start by beating Bangalore Royal Challengers by a whopping 140 runs in the opening match of IPL 2008. The first twenty overs was a perfect screen raiser for a grand event like IPL. New Zealander Brendon McCullum, who opened the innings with Sourav Ganguly, went on to score 158 runs from just 73 deliveries. The unbeaten century included 10 fours and 13 sixes.

The performance that followed might have disappointed the franchise owners Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Jai Mehta. The team managed only 11 points from the remaining 13 games and failed to make it to the semi-finals stage.

IPL 2009 has already started in a controversial manner for Kolkata Knight Riders. The coach John Buchanan has proposed a new theory of using multiple captains, which did not go well with Sourav Ganguly. Finally, the franchise owners have to step in to alleviate any further damage by rephrasing "multiple captains" into "strategists". We need to wait and see how well Kolkata Knight Riders perform in South Africa. The following is the list of IPL 2009 matches involving Kolkata Knight Riders:
