Rising Pune Supergiants – Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, it’s rare to see team struggling to make a win. After an injury to Kevin Pietersen, things assumed to be worst as chances he may rule out of IPL 9. The lack of hitting power was been seen against the RCB, thanks to Perera’s 25 in an over that was a match worth watching.

It will be interesting to see, what changes Dhoni brings in replacement of Kevin Pietersen. Dhoni talked about bringing in an all-rounder, it is expected Albie Morkel to take his place.

Kolkata Knight Riders – The most stable team in the IPL and currently ranking top of the table. The openers are in good form, and are been continuously giving good start to the team. The middle order hasn’t been tested much, as Gambhir have been in prime form, scoring majority of runs.

Having, Narine back in the squad, the bowling looks more fearless. The only way RPS have good chances to win against the KKR is to get quick wicket of Gambhir as that would bring a lot of pressure on the KKR team.
