Facing the two-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings couldn’t have come at a better time for Kolkata Knight Riders, who are in fine form.
It’s now four successive wins for KKR and they will be in very good stead to make the playoffs in 2014 if they beat Chennai in this encounter.
Robin Uthappa has been the breakthrough success with the bat for Kolkata, with captain Gautam Gambhir, Ryan ten Doeschate and Yusuf Pathan also hitting form at the right time.
They are brilliantly supported by the always reliable Sunil Narine, with the spinner having taken 15 wickets so far in the tournament.
In the Super Kings though they are up against perhaps the most consistent team in IPL 7 though, with the franchise having not been bowled out once this year.
The team will however be smarting from Sunday’s defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore and MS Dhoni and his men will be looking to get back to winning ways immediately.
They will be boosted by the return of their impressive opener Brendon McCullum, who flew back to New Zealand at the weekend for this birth of his child.
McCullum and Dwayne Smith have been a high point for the side when opening the batting, with great support provided by Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Mike Hussey.
