TOSS: Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir won the toss and elected to bat first.

PITCH REPORT: The wicket looks pretty flat and shouldn`t have any assistance for the seam bowlers.


In one of the most anticipated matches of the Indian Premier League season 5, Kolkata`s favourite son Sourav Ganguly will take the field at Eden Gardens as the opposition team Pune Warrior`s captain against the home team Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.

One team has lost four matches on the trot in the Indian Premier League and now finds itself in the rear pack. The other side is on a high occupying the second position after four back-to-back victories and looks set for a place in the play-offs.

But such dry statistics carry little significance for Saturday`s marquee game. Passion runs high among the public, who are billing the encounter as a Dada versus SRK grudge match.

For the first three Indian Premier League editions, Ganguly was an indispensable part of the KKR, though their association was not controversy-free.

The prince of Kolkata captained the team in the inaugural year but lost the job in the second season which was marked by his run-ins with coach John Buchanan. Ganguly got back the captaincy in the third season, but his authority was much diluted amidst reports of growing differences with SRK.

Weather update

Rain could play spoilsport in the much-anticipated clash. It had been the case here on two previous occasions and the Met forecast been no different this time.
