Kolkata Knight Riders
Kolkata Knight Riders have played for the IPL trophy ever since the tournament’s inaugural run in 2008. Shahrukh Khan’s ownership of the team adds a tint of stardom to their lineup to date. The team’s home ground in Eden Gardens where they have faced several worthy opponents. However, despite having many explosive batsmen and menacing bowlers under its wing, KKR has only won the IPL twice. During the other seasons, the team reached the playoffs four times and faced 6 group stage eliminations.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad played their first IPL season in 2013. Previously, Deccan Chargers represented the city of Hyderabad. However, after IPL terminated the franchise in 2012, Sunrisers Hyderabad took the reins from there. The team experienced its one and only IPL victory in 2016. Ben Cutting was the player of the match. Ever since then, SRH has made consecutive appearances in the playoff stage of the tournament. In 2018, Sunrisers Hyderabad missed the mark by an inch and walked out of the contest as the runner-up. This year in 2020, it will be great fun to watch both the teams battle against each other. With eight different teams once again competing in the tournament, KKR and SRH hold pretty fair chances of being the trophy bearer, once again.
