|Most runs||Gautam Gambhir (406)|
|Most wickets||Sunil Narine (22)|
KKR were the defending champions but they had a disappointing IPL season in 2013, as they failed to make the play-offs, losing ten and winning only six out of their sixteen matches. Although the overall performance was disappointing, a few individual performances gained attention, like Sunil Narine who took 22 wickets in 16 matches and Gautam Gambhir who made some good runs. But due to lack of rhythm and perfect combination of players, and bad form of a few players, the KKR could not win few easy matches and ended up 7/9.
