The cash-rich Indian Premier League started in 2008 with marquee players leading the eight franchise. Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly was appointed the captain of his hometown franchise Kolkata Knight Riders. Ganguly’s journey in KKR didn’t as plan as the southpaw’s captaincy abilities was in question for the first time in his career after his franchise end the inaugural season at the sixth spot. The Things got worse in the second season as then KKR coach John Buchanan decided to adopt the multiple captains with Ganguly, West Indian Chris Gayle, New Zealand’s explosive opener Brendon McCullum and Australian Brad Hodge. KKR ended on the bottom of the table in the 2009 edition which was held in South Africa.
