Champions League T20
CL T20 Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Perth Scorchers
Two undefeated sides from Group A, Kolkata Knight Riders and Perth Scorchers go head to head later tonight at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Raipur. After having piled up impressive wins against their respective opponents, both teams resemble a confident side, hence an entertaining game is on the cards.

Perth Scorchers have got the right blend of youth and experience in their line up, which includes the likes of Brad Hogg, Adam Voges, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mitchell Marsh just to name a few. KKR cannot afford to take this Australian side likely, for it was this team, which has been the most consistent team in the Australian Big Bash League (BBL). They won the last edition of the BBL as well.

Kolkata on the other hand, has been the team to watch out for they were the most impressive team in second half of the IPL earlier this season. Since then, they have not looked back at all, continuing their form in this competition too.

Gautam Gambhir may not have shone with the bat, but has shown great leadership qualities to lead the team. Robin Uthappa, Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, Manish Pandey, Andre Russell has been some of the mainstays of the team owned by Shahrukh Khan. They have one of the best bowling line up in the tournament, which is spearheaded by the Carribean spinner, Sunil Narine, who might pose a serious threat to the Scorchers side.

If KKR win their game against the Scorchers, it puts them as favourites to top the group and hence progress into the knockout rounds of the competition.
