After you have the Favorites before the tournament shakes, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), absorbent initially for the tournament, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have placed themselves in front of the tail in a tough pool 'A'. They have not reached the stages round of the tournament so far, and the patron, Gautam Gambhir, said that getting beyond the group stage was his first goal. The victory before Chennai was a long way in the fulfilment of his desire, but another victory, this time against the Lahore Lions can put them within reach of the round phase.
On the other hand, Lahore lions are high on confidence after a performance convincing in the qualifying tournament, beating Mumbai Indians and South Express with a high degree of comfort, but then spent moments of anxiety while waiting for Northern Knights, against which received a beating at their meeting of League, to help them through the main round of the tournament.
Kolkata Knight Riders: despite a failure of higher-order, Kolkata Chennai last waltz in the first group match. The strengths of Kolkata are found in the depth of batting, something that was in wide screen. In normal situations, a player like Andre Russell would have been left warming the bench, but the forced absence of Shakib al Hasan and Jacques Kallis meant the West Indies all-rounder was given the opportunity to make a name for itself. If the success of Russell was a pleasant surprise, Ryan ten Doeschate continued to be impressive. Together, the duo took Kolkata post victory. The core of the India of this batting line-up has been quite inconsistent but if Robin Uthappa does return, Kolkata will start to resemble win material.
If batting has depth, the bowling alley with oozes class. Pat Cummins and Umesh Yadav were faces in the first match, but both have the pace and skills to go with it. It is the Department's giro where Kolkata can easily overshadow the rest. Sunil Narine approach to perhaps become the best bowling player never in the T20 format of the game. Piyush Chawla has improved by leaps and bounds while Yusuf Pathan can contain more of the hand with the ball
Lahore Lions: Champions of Pakistan can not boast of some prized possessions as opposed to the team of the Indian Premier League (IPL), but they have more than compensated for this with a lot of guts and determination. A comprehensive quality is his greatest strength. Skipper, Mohammad Hafeez led from the side front with the bat in the match has to win against the South express in their final qualifying match. The rendered has looked solid, though, were all at sea when against enormous quality. With some difficult matches in the anvil, Hafeez would like to have more support from their peers, both with the bat and the ball.
Things are different in the bowling Department. Except for a poor effort against the gentlemen of the North, players have been in the nail with their lines and lengths. Aizaz Cheema emerged as the pedestrian taker highest in the qualifing rounds, while Wahab Riaz turned out to be an ideal complement. The spin Department is stocked with quality and they have demonstrated their ability on many occasions.
Robin Utthappa and Jacques Kallis lost the first encounter of Calcutta with a lesion. While Uthappa status is not clear, Kallis, though shaped, could continue to heat the banks after the pyrotechnics of Andre Russell.
Lahore could enter with the same team that defeated South express widely in its final qualifying match.
KKR support staff is excellent. You ask a lot of questions of Akram. He teaches me simple things in practice that may not notice. I do what it says to do Andre Russell melts in praise for the support of KKR staff.
All participating teams in the tournament are champions. We, as a team, we have good talent. We believe that if we play well we can win any Mohammad Hafeez team relies on the prospects for his team.
