2008 – Brendon McCullum started off like a dream for the side, but after the bumper start, their campaign fizzled out and they finished 6th in the points table.

2009 – It was a season to forget for the side as they lost 10 matches and hence, finished last on the points table.

2010 – 7 wins and 7 losses in the season saw KKR finish 6th in the points table.
