Gautam Gambhir is the leader, and one of the mainstays of the Kolkata Knight Riders batting unit. A big-match player, he top scored for India in the final of the 2007 ICC World T20 and the 2011 ICC World Cup. A slew of Test and one-day centuries, including an 11-hour marathon in Napier, led to him being decorated with an Arjuna Award and the title of ICC Test Player of the Year in 2009. Having played for Delhi Daredevils in the first three seasons, Gambhir was snapped up by KKR at the 2011 IPL Player Auction for a record-smashing USD 2.5 million. He vindicated their decision when he captained KKR to their first top-four finish in IPL 2011, then led them to their maiden IPL title in the following year and helped them regain the title in 2014.
