The Kolkata Knight Riders narrowly missed out on a playoff berth, finishing at the fifth position in IPL 2020.

With a good blend of youth and experience, they’re one of the most power-packed sides in the competition.

Kolkata will open their campaign against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on 11 April. The Eoin Morgan-led side will play most of their matches in Bangalore (5), followed by Ahmedabad (4), Chennai (3), and Mumbai (2).

While they’ll heavily depend on the likes of Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, the franchise has made some interesting acquisitions in 2021 - Shakib Al Hasan, Harbhajan Singh and Karun Nair to name a few. They were particularly smart in approaching the auctions and didn’t shell a lot as compared to some of the other teams. Shakib, at Rs 3,20,00,000, was their most expensive buy in 2021.

Here's the full schedule for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
