There is always a strong rivalry being seen when these two teams come upfront on the ground. As the best season of KXIP came back in 2014, in which KXIP reached final for the first time but KKR played some brilliant cricket and took away the trophy from KXIP.
From 2014 a cold rivalry has always been a moment of pleasure for the fans who come to watch their match. KXIP have not won a single season of Indian Premier league whereas KKR has won it a couple of time.
