We have got a potentially exciting match tonight in the OPPO Champions League Twenty20 2014 with the defending IPL Champions Kolkata Knight Riders clashing against the Pakistan domestic T20 champions Lahore Lions at Hyderabad. This Kolkata Knight Riders vs Lahore Lions, Group A match will begin at 8:00 pm IST at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal.
Kolkata Knight Riders are on a high after their unexpected victory against the Chennai Super Kings at Hyderabad. Their spin attack is simply superb and they will be hoping that Robin Uthappa is fit to play this match. Robin Uthappa had missed KKR’s opening game because of a troubled knee.
Lahore Lions have worked hard to reach this stage of the tournament. They defeated defending CLT20 champions Mumbai Indians in the qualifiers. Of course, the Lahore Lions’ batting can be pathetic when it comes to playing quality swing and seam bowling. Like Pakistan, the Lahore Lions are also a team which can blow hot and cold something which is also similar with the Gautam Gambir led Kolkata Knight Riders.
