In-form KKR look to add to Gujarat's misery

Buoyant Kolkata take on lowly Gujarat in IPL clash

The Knight Riders have been a dominant force in front of their home crowd, winning both their games at the Eden Gardens and the Lions would require some special efforts in order to breach this fortress. So keeping that in mind, my shots won't change, but at the same time I will look to play a longer innings.

"I'm enjoying a lot". If you say we can not fix one slot (opening), we are doing well in all other slots.

Here, we look at three players who you should look at picking in your fantasy team for this encounter. The coach and captain are thinking over the opening slot, and they will come out with a solution.

The Gujarat Lions opener might not have started the IPL campaign on a good note, scoring 40 runs in his first two matches, but the former New Zealand star has struck form.

The former New Zealand skipper might have retired from global cricket over a year ago, but he still continues to thrill fans with some attacking strokeplay in various T20 leagues across the world and the IPL is no different.

Of course, we won against Delhi handsomely, and there is a certain confidence that is there. "We have nine matches to play, will look to continue good work", he added. They have been brilliant in all departments of the game, and Gautam Gambhir's team should continue their winning ways against one of the weak teams in the competition, Gujarat Lions.

United States turning Korean peninsula into world's biggest hotspot warns UN ambassador
Han told the BBC that North Korea believed its nuclear weapons "protect" it from the threat of U.S. military action. North Korea warns it is prepared for war if the United States takes action to stop its ballistic missile program.

17 of the 21 matches involving the Gujarat Lions have been won by the team chasing; the Lions have won 9 run chases, while their opponents have been victorious in 8 run-chases. One of them needs to not only carry on to make a big score, possible closer to a three-figure mark.

KKR has always come up with surprises. There are a lot of positives to take from. So we are focussing more on that and not on the negative side.

I should have finished the match (against Delhi). In the last match, after batting so well, I got out, which was a crime. They have more than made up for the lack of teeth in the first six overs by striking repeatedly in the middle overs; they have taken a total of 18 wickets in the middle overs - which is the highest among all the teams.

On dropped catches Everyone is talking about it. We will improve for sure.

KKR superstar Yusuf Pathan says that KKR is his team and will look to flourish against the team from his own state.

Here, we have tried our best to cure your headache, give you some options - who to choose - for this KKR vs GL clash. The management would also be pleased to see the growth of Manish Pandey in the role of a finisher for the side as he steered them over the line with an unbeaten knock of 69 under pressure.
