Kolkata Team is the champion of IPL T20. They are winner of IPL-5 and IPL-7 i.e. in the year 2012 and 2014 . The KKR team didn’t played well in the first three years of League. From 4th season they improved their performance and got attention of fans. And in the season 5 they reached to the play-off and won Indian Premier League 2012 by defeating Chennai Super Kings for the very first time. They repeated the championship in year 2014 by defeating the match played against Kings XI Punjab. In the year 2015 they didn’t performed so well. Fans and franchise got disappointed because of their under performance.
