Kolkata Knight Riders' undefeated run in IPL 2024 came to an end at the hands of Chennai Super Kings. But the slump was not for long as KKR have returned to winning ways as they defeated Lucknow Super Giants by eight wickets on Apri; 14. With it, KKR's spot on the IPL 2024 points table remained in second place after unbeaten Rajasthan Royals. The Knight Riders kicked off their campaign with a nervy victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad before becoming the first team this season to win an away match, beating Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Shreyas Iyer and his side took their performance up by a notch by beating Delhi Capitals in Vizag in a match where they posted the second-highest total in IPL history (272/7).

The Kolkata Knight Riders have won two titles in the tournament under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir. KKR's tenure in the Indian Premier League under Gambhir is marked as their golden period, during which the team witnessed immense success. However, ever since the former Indian opener left the team, the franchise couldn't maintain its high-performing standards, and its performance declined in the competition. However, the franchise looks good enough to repeat glory again and win their title of the cash-rich league.
