Pune Warriors:

The Warriors have been sadly out of sorts in all departments of the game. Only opener Robin Uthappa and all-rounder Angelo Matthews have shown some good game. PWI would have to depend more on Yuvraj Singh. The batsman has scored just 205 runs from his 11 games, while batsman Steve Smith has returned to Australia due to a back injury.

The bowling line-up also remains a big concern for Pune, at crucial times most of their bowlers have leaked runs. Ashoke Dinda has been expensive in most of the games he has played.

Teams (from):

Pune Warriors: Aaron Finch (captain), Angelo Mathews, Abhishek Nayar, Ajanta Mendis, Ali Murtaza, Anustup Mazumdar, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dheeraj Jadhav, Eklavya Dwivedi, Harpreet Singh, Ishwar Pandey, Kane Richardson, Krishnakant Upadhyay, Luke Wright, Mahesh Rawat, Manish Pandey, Marlon Samuels, Mitchell Marsh, Mithun Manhas, Parveez Rasool, Rahul Sharma, R Gomez, Robin Uthappa, Shrikant Wagh, T Suman, Tamim Iqbal, Udit Birla, Wayne Parnell and Yuvraj Singh.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata rely spinners – Sachithra Senanayake and Sunil Narine. Narine is the leading wicket taker (Purple cap holder) and his part will play an important role against Pune Warriors.

Jacques Kallis, a classic all-rounder, has had a bad run in the competition. Gautam Gambhir and Manvinder Bisla at the top of the order have not really fired. Manoj Tiwary is expected to play an important role in the middle-order.

Teams from:

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (C), Manvinder Bisla, Yusuf Pathan, Jacques Kallis, Rajat Bhatia, Laxmipathy Balaji, Sarabjit Ladda, Brad Haddin, Debabrata Das, Iqbal Abdulla, Brett Lee, Ryan McLaren, Eoin Morgan, Sunil Narine, Sumit Narwal, Suchitra Senanayake, Pradeep Sangwan, Shami Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Ryan ten Doeschate, Manoj Tiwary, James Pattinson.
