IPL: Faltering Knights face Daredevils; Raj Royals vs. Kings XI
Posted on: 05-05-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

Revenge will fuel Rajasthan Royals' campaign when they take on Yuvraj Singh-led Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday.

A defeat against Chennai Super Kings in their last match notwithstanding, the Virender Sehwag-led Daredevils should have it easy given Kolkata's misery in the Twenty20 event so far.

 The Knight Rider’s pathetic display has left owner Shah Rukh Khan so disappointed that he refused to come here and support Brendon McCullum and his men until they start winning. Given Kolkata's form, it seems unlikely that Shah Rukh would make the trip.

 To make it worse for them, Kolkata goes into Tuesday’s match without Chris Gayle, the West Indian opener who has left for national duty against England.

 His departure comes as a huge blow to the team, which desperately needs skipper McCullum and Sourav Ganguly to strike form.

Sangakkara's first fifty of the tournament and Irfan Pathan's all-round show to fashion Kings XI Punjab's 27-run win against the Rajasthan Royals in Cape Town.

 Past records, however, would count for little when the sides square off at Kingsmead on Tuesday to have another go at each other.

 Kings XI didn't have the best of starts in the tournament as they began with back-to-back defeats against Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders in two rain-marred ties.

 The opening match debacle against the Royal Challengers Bangalore was followed by the washed out tie against Mumbai Indians.

In contrast, Rajasthan's batting is way too reliant on Yusuf Pathan even though Abhishek Raut has also made his mark.

 Warne has been marshalling his thin bowling resource with characteristic guile and once again his stunning leadership would keep the Punjab side guessing all along Tuesday
