KKR will open their campaign against RCB

Bengaluru, Feb 20: The Kolkata Knight Riders are all set for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) scheduled to begin on March 29th at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The Knight Riders, who have lifted the IPL trophy twice - in 2012 and 2014 - will go out all guns blazing after stealing the show at the IPL auction. The auction for the 13th edition was held in December and the Knight Riders stole the show as they broke the bank to sign Australian star Pat Cummins for a record deal.

Having secured a starry line-up the Knights are set to begin their campaign against the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on March 31.

The Dinesh Karthik-led side will play their first home game against the Delhi Capitals on April 3rd at the Eden Gardens. The Knights will play their last league game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on May 15th at the Eden Gardens.

Former champions Kolkata Knight Riders made headlines when they broke the bank to sign Australian star Pat Cummins and when the season gets underway all eyes will be on the Australian to make a mark and justify his price tag.

Apart from Cummins, the Knights also will have the services of England's World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan. Morgan who was a former Knight's player was picked up by KKR for Rs. 5.25 crore. But despite having the World Cup winning captain in their ranks, KKR head coach Brendon McCullum had confirmed that Dinesh Karthik will continue to lead the Kolkata team

The Kolkata Knight Riders have won the title twice in the past. The first time the Kolkata team laid their hands on the trophy was in 2012. The second time the Knights lifted the trophy was in 2016.

In the last edition the Knights narrowly missed out on the playoffs and with a solid team for the upcoming edition, KKR will certainly hope to comfortably reach the playoffs.
