Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face Lahore Lions in the seventh match of Champions League Twenty 20 (CLT20) at Hyderabad on Sunday. KKR are the champions of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 whereas Lahore Lions are champions of Pakistan’s domestic T20 tournament. Both teams are coming on the back of victories. KKR sealed a victory against CSK in a spectacular fashion, while Lahore Lions clinched a comprehensive win over Southern Express to qualify for the tournament proper.

While KKR head into the second game of the ongoing tournament after registering a memorable win against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the first after the end of the qualifying round, the Lahore Lions will look to begin the group stage on a good note after a spirited performance in the qualifiers.

KKR, who emerged winners of this year’s edition of the Indian Premier League after defeating Kings XI Punjab in the final, started off the tournament on a thrilling note by defeating MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings by three wickets courtesy a power-packed innings of 58 runs off 25 balls by Andre Russell. KKR had lost five wickets for a mere 51 runs while chasing a target of 158 runs. It was the middle-order duo of Ryan ten Doeschate and Russell that helped add 80 runs for the sixth wicket.
