Kolkata Knight Riders assistant coach Vijay Dahiya said the tournament has become more intense and interesting now with very little separating the teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL) standings.

 

He said that his team was pretty well aware of how dangerous RCB team players like Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers can be. Dahiya also expressed his team’s satisfaction with Gautam Gambhir as a skipper.

 

On whether KKR have any specific plans for Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers, he said, “I think both of them are fantastic players. It depends on what we do on the park. It also depends on what kind of situation they are in either they are batting first or we have put the runs up on the board and according to that the plans keep changing.”

 

Asked whether they were all geared up for the grudge match against Sourav Ganguly-led Pune Warriors India, Dahiya said “It's about the next game that you play. We are not looking too far ahead, it'ss about the game on Saturday. That's still far away we still have a couple of matches in between them.”

 

A virgin pitch out of the three strips is reportedly being used for the tomorrow's match and the Knight Riders assistant coach said they were ready for any surface.

 

“More or less you know the nature of the surface (here).
