It is going to be a match between two Champions teams – the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Perth Scorchers this evening at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The Kolkata Knight Riders as we know are the Pepsi IPL 2014 Champions while the Perth Scorchers are the current KFC Big Bash League 2014 Champions. Both these teams are in Group A of the OPPO Champions League Twenty20 2014.
The Kolkata Knight Riders vs Perth Scorchers, Group A Match on Sep 24, 2014 will be shown live on Star Cricket channels. The Kent Cricket Live show ahead of the match starts at 7:30 pm. The anchors of this show have been Mayanti Langer and Gautam Bhimani. The experts on the Kent Cricket Live show on Star Cricket for CLT20 2014 have been former India players Deep Dasgupta, Ajit Agarkar and Murali Kartik. Here is a list of channels that will be broadcasting the live cricket from the OPPO CLT20 2014.
Well things are looking bright for the Kolkata Knight Riders all because of the presence of Sunil Narine in their team. Not one batsman has looked comfortable and convincing against the mystery spin of Sunil Narine and the West Indian has ended up with miserly bowling figures by hardly giving away any runs.
Team KKR led by Gautam Gambhir are on a roll winning 11 matches in a row. They have won two of two so far in the OPPO CLT20 2014. First was against the Chennai Super Kings and followed it up with a win over the Lahore Lions both at Hyderabad.
The Perth Scorchers led by Adam Voges are going to play their second game of the Oppo CLT20 2014 tonight. Their first match of this season’s Champions League Twenty20 2014 was against the Sunfoil Dolphins at Mohali. It is the same match in which Mitchell Marsh stole the thunder with two consecutive sixes in the final two balls of the matches.
Watch out for Joel Paris, he looks very impressive with his left-arm swing bowling. The 21-year-old Joel Paris can bowl at sharp speeds as well to make it difficult with the new ball.
The weather in Hyderabad has been hot and humid. So far there has been no rain today in Uppal which is the location of the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. However, we could have a possible shower later in the night although it is not quite cloudy today.
