====================================================================================

Latest update coming in is that Manoj Tiwary and Jacques Kallis are doubtful for this game. For Kings XI Punjab Shaun Marsh will not be playing tonight.

Kolkata will be looking to put their loss to Mumbai Indians behind as the take on a spirited Kings XI Punjab. They will be counting on Gambhir and Morgan to lead the batting and the likes of Yusuf Pathan need to fire. Sunil Narine will lead the bowling again and will look to bamboozle the Kings XI batsmen.

Things are falling in place for Kings XI Punjab and they will be looking to continue their impressive performance against the Delhi Daredevils in their last match. Despite Gilchrist having failed to score big runs at the top the likes of Mandeep Singh, David Miller and David Hussey have provided some much needed stability to the batting line up. There is also a possibility of Shaun Marsh playing for Punjab today.
