Strong Points: Kolkata Knightriders have a decent combination of bat and ball. With they back to the opening combination of Gautam gambhir, the batting unit looks a completely different one now. The middle order is a devastating one , with Yusuf Pathan, Ryan Toendoeschate and Andre Rusel forming it. At the present moment , they look an unbeatable side with the way they have played so far. In the bowling department , they bank heavily on the spinners to do both the holding and wicket taking job. KUldeep yadav was excellent with the ball in the previous match but the key bowler will be Sunil Narine. Opposition have looked to defend him and take on the other bowlers .
For Perth Scorchers, they have a good bowling line up. Joel paris has been excellent with the ball for them and their fielding has been excellent. They have got Mitchell Marsh as their key player , who can turn in with both bat and the ball.
Weak Points: KKR don’t seem to have a pace bowling which can trouble the opposition at the moment. Pat Cummins is far from being the leader of the pace attack and none others have got a regular go. Andre Russel is making it intot the 11 because of his abilities with the bat.
In the Perth Scorchers line up, they don’t seem to have enough depth in their batting lineup. Mitchell Marsh has to come up if they want to have any big score on the board.
Prediction: Considering the way KKR has performed since the 2nd half of the IPL to till date, it will be a upset if Perth Socrchers can beat Kolkat Knightriders in thsi match.
