If we talk about IPL we need to talk about the team who holds the record for the longest winning streak in IPL Kolkata Knight Riders. The team has won 14 matches in a row and it is also the maximum number of matches that a team has won consecutively. They hold a very good past record in the IPL as they have lifted the IPL trophy twice in the years 2012 and 2014.

KKR will play their first match against Delhi Daredevils on 10th April and they will surely want to win their first match and start off their tournament on a high.
