Having found the winning touch in their last match, Kolkata Knight Riders would be hoping to maintain the momentum when they host Rajasthan Royals in an Indian Premier League return match here on Friday.
IPL 5/2012: Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Rajasthan Royals (KKR v RR) 15th Match.
Match Start at 13 Apr, 2012, 8 PM IST.
The timing could not have been better for the Knights to capitalise as the Royals are coming after a battering at the hands of Mumbai Indians in their last match Wednesday.
Kolkata Knight Riders Team : B Lee, G Gambhir, BB McCullum, YK Pathan, BJ Haddin, JH Kallis, Shakib Al Hasan, R Bhatia, LR Shukla, MK Tiwary, L Balaji, PJ Sangwan, RN ten Doeschate, MS Bisla, DB Das, Iqbal Abdulla, EJG Morgan, SP Narine, JL Pattinson, I Saxena, S Ladda, J Unadkat, Shami Ahmed, Marchant de Lange, SV Samson, CS Jani,
Rajasthan Royals Team : BJ Hodge, SR Watson, RS Dravid, S Sreesanth, PD Collingwood, J Botha, OA Shah, SW Tait, AS Chopra, STR Binny, DH Yagnik, GB Hogg, FY Fazal, A Madhukar Rahane, Pankaj Singh, AA Chavan, PR Shah, A Raut, LD Chandimal, AG Paunikar, Ashok Menaria, Deepak Chahar, SK Trivedi, Amit Singh, Kevon Cooper, SP Goswami,
With the Knight Riders’ next match (vs Kings XI Punjab on Sunday) also scheduled at home, maintaining the winning momentum will top their agenda.
Whereas Rahul Dravid’s men appear a bit tired with the hectic scheduling, the Knights are fortunate to get a day’s extra break after their win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday.
