In just a few hours from now, Knight Riders will take on the mighty Kings XI in their backyard, The Eden Gardens. Having won 3 matches each, both teams will look for a victory to reach the top of the table today.
KKR have been in a great touch under the leadership of sound captain, Dinesh Karthik. They have the services of mysterious Sunil Narine and demolishing Robin Uthappa at their disposal. Sunil Narine has always proved to be deadly while bowling in the spinner-friendly conditions of the Eden Gardens.
On the other hand, Punjab, under the leadership of ex-CSK spinner Ravi Ashwin have been in a top notch form. With KL Rahul and “The Universe Boss” at the top of the order, Kings XI have a destructive batting line-up. Gayle has been in great touch. The 38-year-old has scored a total of 167 runs in the two matches he has played. Both his knocks proved to be match winning for the Kings. Rahul also has been supporting him really well. Karun Nair has also played a great hand down the order for the Kings.
When these two teams will come face-to-face in today’s match, the contest between the two Carribean players, Chris Gayle and Sunil Narine will be worth watching (if both of them play today).
Will Chris Gayle be able to hit Narine all around the park? Or will Narine get the better of the giant?
