Kolkata Knight Riders have a tough task in this latest 2014 IPL fixture as they travel to the Barabati Stadium to try and beat the seemingly unstoppable Kings XI Punjab.
The last time these two met it was a close affair that was narrowly edged by Kings XI, but Kolkata’s bowling attack will be extremely aware of the danger posed by in form batsmen Glenn Maxwell and David Miller.
The duo are well supported by veteran opener Virender Sehwag and if they all click it will be difficult for the Knight Riders to avoid defeat.
KKR themselves have been very inconsistent in IPL 7, although will have had their morale boosted by the win over Delhi Daredevils in their last match.
Their out of form captain Gautam Gambhir – who has come in for plenty of criticism in this tournament – hit a half century and the franchise will be hoping that is a sign of things to come.
However, up against Sandeep Sharma and Mitchell Johnson, the likes of Gambhir, Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey will need to be sharp at the crease.
The visitors will once again be looking to mystery spinner Sunil Narine to try and suppress the marauding Maxwell and Miller – which will be a tough task for the West Indian.
