At present, Rajasthan Royals is in the third place and Kolkata Knight Riders is in the seventh place of the points table.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Knight Riders have many flaws in them – uneven team selection, flawed approach and poor attitude. These have made many to believe that last year’s crown was nothing but a fluke. Still, it looks Captain Gautam Gambhir is adamant in his approach.

The latest of their seven losses was against the growing Daredevils who registered their second successive win, third overall, by seven wickets last night at Raipur. They now have to win six more matches if they want to enter into the playoffs.

Team Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Manvinder Bisla (wk), Yusuf Pathan, Jacques Kallis, Eoin Morgan, Debabrata Das, Rajat Bhatia, Sumit Narwal, Brett Lee, Sunil Narine, Laxmipathy Balaji, Brendon McCullum, Ryan ten Doeschate, Ryan McLaren, Brad Haddin, Manoj Tiwary, Iqbal Abdulla, Mohammad Shami Ahmed, Pradeep Sangwan, Sachithra Senanayake, Sarabjit Ladda and Paras Dogra.

Rajasthan Royals:

On the other hand, Rahul Dravid has led the team to perfection. Chasing a massive 172 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Dravid’s decision to promote 18-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson to number three spot proved brilliant as he came up with 63 runs in their four-wicket win in the last match.

Shane Watson’s 101, unbeaten 98 and 41 in last three appearances is just coming at the right time. They also have big hitters in Brad Hodge, Owais Shah and Ajinkya Rahane.

Team Rajasthan Royals: Rahul Dravid (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson (wk), Shane Watson, Brad Hodge, Stuart Binny Owais Shah, James Faulkner, Ajit Chandila, Siddharth Trivedi, Sreesanth, Brad Hogg, Fidel Edwards, Kevon Cooper, Kushal Perera, Samuel Badree, Shaun Tait, Ankit Chavan, Ashok Maneria, Dishant Yagnik, Harmeet Singh, Kumar Borsea, Pravin Thambe, Rahul Shukla, Sachin Baby, Shreevats Goswami, Vikramjeet Malik.
