Under Gautam Gambhir, Kolkata Knight Riders tasted their maximum success as the southpaw turned their fortunes around instantly. Gautam Gambhir, a shrewd and aggressive leader, took charge of the team in 2011, when the Knight Riders reached the playoffs for the first time. The next three years proved the most prolific for the Kolkata Knight Riders as they clinched two titles.

In 2012, Kolkata beat the two-time champions Chennai Super Kings to race to their first title and two years title; they gunned down Kings XI Punjab by chasing 200 in the final successfully. While the franchise did not taste the unprecedented success of 2012 and 2014, they still remained a competitive side, unlike now. Gambhir tasted 70 wins in 128 matches as captain.
