Kolkata Knight Riders are the third-most successful franchise in the history of the IPL with two titles under their belt. The Knight Riders struggled in the first three seasons but made it to the playoffs for the first time in IPL 2011 season. In the next season, they made it all the way to the finals of the competition and defeated Chennai Super Kings to win their maiden IPL title.
In IPL 2014 edition, they pulled off the same feat by making it to the second IPL final. As it turned out, they defeated Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in the final to win their second IPL title. Since then, they struggled for consistency in the subsequent seasons before they made it to the third IPL final in 2021 edition. However, they lost to Chennai Super Kings in the final showdown.
Delhi Capitals are one of the few teams in the Indian Premier League who are yet to win the IPL since the inaugural edition of the tournament. The Delhi-based franchise’s best season spell came during IPL 2020 where they made it to the finals for the first time. However, they surrendered at the hands of Mumbai Indians in the epic final showdown.
In the IPL 2022 season, they narrowly missed out on making it to the playoffs. Delhi Capitals managed to win seven games and lost as many games in the league stage. As a result, they finished fifth on the points table with a Net Run Rate of +0.204. Overall, Delhi Capitals have qualified for the playoffs six times in their journey (two semi-finals, runners-up once).
