Kolkata Knight Riders Schedule - IPL 2014
Kolkata Knight Riders, the champions of 2012, would play the inaugural match of the 7th edition of Indian Premier League against the defending champions Mumbai Indians. KKR would again be captained by the left handed opening batsman Gautam Gambhir who is currently out of the Indian team. This IPL would be a great opportunity for him to fight his way back into the national squad again. The pitches in the United Arab Emirates especially in Abu Dhabi would suit KKR quite well because they are slow in nature and the ball would grip there.

KKR looks a solid T20 side because they have got some high class all rounders. The likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Jacques Kallis can get into the XI of any team purely as a batsman or purely as a bowler. Apart from Kallis and Shakib, KKR has got More Morkel as well who is a fearsome fast bowler. The batting of the Knight Riders look a bit one dimensional though as there are too many top order players in there.

KKR had not had a great season last year and they would like to ensure that this season doesn’t go that way. They would be looking to get to the playoffs at least. Wasim Akram is back as the bowling coach of KKR. So, that’s good news for them. He would certainly provide some valuable inputs to the young quicks on how to bowl on slow pitches and how to get the ball reverse swing. Sunil Narine would again be the trump card for KKR.

Player Squad Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Debabrata Das, Gautam Gambhir, Jacques Kallis, Kuldeep Singh, Manish Pandey, Manvinder Bisla, Morne Morkel, Patrick Cummins, Piyush Chawla, Ranganath Vinay Kumar, Robin Uthappa, Ryan Ten Doeschate, Sayan Mondal, Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Suryakumar Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Veer Pratap Singh and Yusuf Pathan.
