Starting from the Kolkata Knight Riders who are so far in dazzling form and the way they have played this tournament is so amazing. They have won 6 out of 9 games and are at the top of the table like a boss. Kolkata biggest reason of such a success is their amazing batting which clicked in almost all the matches and have played the major roles in the victory of the team. Their captain Gautam Gambhir has led his side from the front and the way he has scored runs for his side is just amazing. Coming towards the other batsmen where Robin Uthappa was brilliant and has helped his captain a lot by playing aggressively in the power play and demolished the bowling attacks. Kolkata lower middle order batsmen which include Yusuf Pathan and Andre Russel also have done extreamly good and both are looking in red hot form. Both have capitalized the situation well and playing match winning knocks for his side. Coming towards their bowling where the local bowlers didn’t bowl much and the overseas bowler are still finding their rhythm back. Sunil Narine who was bowling well got injured but now he is fit and he will play the remaining matches for his side. Coming towards Andre Russel who has bowled superbly well for his side and at the moment he is the leading wicket taker in this IPL. As a whole Kolkata is playing well and they just need 1 more win to go through next round.
Coming towards the Gujrat Lions who started their tournament in a dazzling way but now they are struggling a bit as the top order also not performing well and the middle order didn’t get their form back. Gujrat have won 6 out 10 games and they are at no 2 in the points table. Gujrat issue is their batting where except the top order none of the batsmen has done anything for the team and the way their middle order has performed in the tournament that was quite disappointing. Raina, Jadeja Karthik and Bravo who all didn’t scored much and are still struggling with their form. Their bowlers have so far done a nice job. Bravo was quite decent with the bowl and Praveen Kumar and Kulkarni both have supported him a lot in the recent matches but their batsmen are not playing their role and that thing can cause problems for the Gujrat Lions side. As a whole their team has so far done a fantastic job and if they cope up with this problem they surely have an easy chance to qualify for the next round.
Coming towards the Kolkata pitch which always favors the batsmen and both the team who win the toss will go to bat second as their might be dew factor. There is no rain forecast in Kolkata.
