Bengaluru: Sep 29, 2011

Kolkata Knight Riders have won the toss and asked Royal Challengers Bangalore to bat first in a must win game at Chinnaswamy stadium, Bengaluru.

Beaten by Warriors in the opening match, Royal Challengers Bangalore will aim for redemption when they take on an equally desperate Kolkata Knight Riders in a do-or-die group league encounter of the Champions League Twenty20 cricket tournament.

Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders on other hand have come into the tournament as underdogs, having lost three games on the trot, including one in the qualifying leg.

Both the teams will be desperate for a victory as another defeat would severely dent their chances of a semi-final berth as only top-two teams in each Group would make the last-four stage.

Teams:

Royal Challenger Bangalore: Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli, Tillakaratne Dilshan (wk), Mohamad Kaif, Saurab Tiwary, Daniel Vettori (c), Raju Bhatkal, J Syed Mohammad, Dirk Nannes, Sreenath Aravind

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (c), Jacques Kallis, Manoj Tiwary, Yusuf Pathan, Ryan ten Doeschate, Brad Haddin (wk), Shami Ahmed, Rajat Bhatia, Iqbal Abdulla, Brett Lee, Jaydev Unadkat.
