CLT20 2012: Auckland Aces vs Kolkata Knight Riders match preview




After heavily loss by 52 runs against Delhi, Kolkata Knight Riders eyes on Monday game against Auckland Aces. Starting of KKR in CLT20 2012 was no so good. In first game, at one moment they were struggling for 3 for 3. They lost their both opener in first over then Kallis retired due to pain in fingers charges the Delhi. So they lost by 52 runs. Now everyone eyes on tough game against the Auckland. They have very good batting and bowling lineup. Their balling was favourably well in last game except Balaji. But their batting was so bad they just gave wicket to opponents side. Now they want to come to winning debut to Auckland. They have very good batsman like Pathan, Gambhir and McCullum but they have to keep themselves on crease to make big score. Their bowling looking very extraordinary by comes to Narine’s form and Brett Lee good line length.

On other side Auckland looking comfortable by bowling and batting department. After winning qualify rounds their want to debut in CLT20 by winning. By brilliant performance by Azhar and Mills looking very confidence in their sides. They have a blasting openers like Guptill and Vincent pairs and middle order they much more depends on Azhar and Hopkins. Their fielding also favourably well in recent matches. This is going for tough competition  for KKR in Cape Town grounds.

Watch out for…

Azhar Mahmood really looking blast bomb in this format. This is going to be one of the best all-rounder after Shane Watson. His bowling is really good and combination of nice pace and good line length create a much more difficultly for batsman. He also show his batting skills in this tournament. This is going to be very destructive in this tournament.

Gautam Gambhir is really struggling with batting and captaincy. His decision of choosing bowling in last game really not understandable. He knows that this pitch give more favouable for first time batting in light medium. But now he wants to bounce back and want to his team on winning track like in IPL.

Probable Teams:

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (cp), Manvider Bisla (wk), Nathen Macculum, L Balaji, Brett Lee, Sunil Narine, Sakib Ul Hasan, Rajat Bhatia, Manoj Tiwary, Rajat Bhatia, Sangwan.

Auckland Aces: Micheal Gareth Hopkins (cp & wk), Martin Guptill, Azhar Mahmood, Lou Vicent, Kyle Mills, Andre Adams, Anaru Kitchen, Cd Grandhomme, Colin Munaro, Ronnie Hira, Micheal Bates.
