Kolkata Knight Riders being the defending champions would eye their third ever IPL title this year. They have retained most of their players and added few good ones to give the team management better options for selection. With the likes of Kallis and Wasim Akram in the coaching staff, the players would have a lot to learn and implement.

Mumbai Indians clinched the title in 2013 and last year they were eliminated by Chennai Super Kings in the eliminator match. Even here most of the old players have been retained. The big one to go back again to the CSK team is Michael Hussey. Australian Ricky Ponting who was a part of the squad last year will now be the head coach for MI team. With all the winning experience he brings to the coaching, he would certainly help the team in being firm under pressure situations.

KKR is glad to have Sunil Narine back into the team after clearing out the suspect action clouds. His mystery spin will be a lethal weapon for Gautam Gambhir against all the teams. He also enjoys a strong opening option of Robin Uthappa along with him and Surya Kumar Yadav, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan and Manish Pandey in the middle order. Bowlers like Morne Morkel, Sunil Narine and Shakib Al Hasan will provide a good bowling strength to the team.

MI has an equally good batting line up. Aaron Finch, Unmukt Chand, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Corey Anderson play an important role in the batting department. Experience of Lasith Malinga and Harbhajan Singh would be a key with the ball.

Both the teams would look for a positive start to IPL 2015 with a win today. Stay tuned with us for more updates on Pepsi IPL season 8!
