Kolkata Knight Riders would be looking to improve on the performance that they displayed in the 2022 IPL season. Under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer, KKR finished 7th in the points table with 6 wins and losses in the tournament.
KKR suffered a major blow as Shreyas Iyer is likely to be ruled out of this season due to a back injury. They would be looking to win matches at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, and hope for better performances away from home.
