Kolkata Knight Riders had retained Gautam Gambhir and Sunil Narine, and have used up all their Right to Match cards today. With six purchases to go and decent money in their wallet, they may go for the unsold players.

 

Biggest purchase: Jacques Kallis and Morne Morkel.

 

Biggest surprise: Paying too high for Piyush Chawla and Yusuf Pathan.

 

Most confusing move: Not going for a specialist wicket-keeper when several inexpensive ones were up for grabs. Robin Uthappa is the only one they have.

 

Probable dark horse: None. Maybe from tomorrow.

 

Team strength: A good, well-rounded bowling attack.

 

Team weakness: Lacks a quality batting line-up.
