IPL 10: The in-form KKR look to further their winning streak against dismally moving Gujarat Lions
Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to take on the Gujarat Lions in the one and only clash of the day at the Eden Gardens tonight.

Given the kind of form KKR has been in, a win for them should not be difficult tonight. With eight points from 4 wins in 5 matches, the Knight Riders have unfolded some absolutely stunning wins so far in the contest. The venue doesn't matter for this team, be it their own backyard or be it playing outside Kolkata, this side has produced some top notch cricketing performances.

The Gujarat Lions on the other hand have been struggling pretty hard to gain some momentum in this season. Last season's table toppers are reeling right at the bottom of the points table with just 1 win under their belt. Team Kolkata would surely be looking to continue their winning streak, but Gujarat must and should be looking towards turning the tables over at the Eden gardens.

The last time these two teams had met in Rajkot, KKR demolished the Gujarat Lions and scoring an absolutely dominating 10-wicket victory over them. Their opener Chris Lynn and captain Gautam Gambhir produced an unbeaten record partnership of 184 runs where Gambhir ended with a score of 76* and Lynn remained unbeaten on 93. Gujarat would surely be seeking a revenge this time around.

Players to watch out for:

The West Indian Sunil Narine's economical bowling against the Delhi Darevdevils did plenty of damage and stranded them to a much lesser total. On the other hand, Manish Pandey's ongoing form makes him a batsman to watch out for. On the flip side of the coin, Brendon McCullum's batting has been aesthetic while Ishan Kishan's display with the wood work in the previous game showed his abilities and how the youngster can take on any bowling attack.
