IPL 2012: Kokata Knight Riders face Rajasthan Royals today
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders would be high on confidence when they meet Rajasthan Royals on their home ground on Friday. In their last match they comprehensively defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore whereas Dravid-led Rajasthan Royals would be looking forward to gain back their rhythm.
Both the teams met last on April 08 when Rajasthan defeated Kolkata by 22 runs due to an all-round performance from its players. Rajasthan had set a target of 165 runs and a top order collapse saw KKR losing the match.
But KKR gained back the rhythm when they defeated RCB in their last match.
While Rajasthan would like to come up with a similar all-round performance, KKR would be desperate to get even with Rajasthan Royals.
Players to watch out for:
Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahana, Owais Shah, Brad Hodge.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Jacques Kallis, Gautam Gambhir, Brett Lee.
The match starts at 8:00 pm.
