Knights appear dangerous

A lacklustre tournament last year notwithstanding, where they failed to defend their title, the Kolkata Knight Riders begin this edition as one of the strong contenders. In their quest for a third crown, KKR haven’t flustered their set-up to a large extent and some smart buys in the auction has given a fine balance to the squad.

The Kolkata unit lapped up attacking left-handed batsman Colin Munro and the New Zealander’s dangerous run in the sprint format of the game in the recent past makes him a valuable player at the top. Jaydev Unadkat, who enjoyed a memorable Ranji Trophy season this year, makes his comeback to give more options for skipper Gautam Gambhir in the bowling department.

Inconsistency have hurt the side often. With former South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis being the new head coach of the side this season, the KKR players will look to utilise the enormous experience of the 40-year-old and remain more consistent in their perfomances.
