Gautam Gambhir opens the batting and he is bound to face Nathan Coulter-Nile early on. The Australian fast bowler is known for getting those crucial early wickets while the 32-year-old opener has been one of the Knight Riders’ stellar performers in the last four 4 years.

Voges on the other hand is a good player of spin and has handled pressure really well. This battle could take place in the middle of the innings because it will dictate the path this game will flow.
Mitchell Marsh vs Sunil Narine
Marsh caught everyone’s attention when he finished helped the Scorchers seal a six-wicket victory with two consecutive sixes in the final two deliveries of the innings. And once again the onus will be on him to ensure Justin Langer’s side secure back-to-back victories. But the 22-year-old Australian has a daunting bowler to face in Sunil Narine. The West Indies spinner has shown his prowess with the ball by managing six maiden overs out of eight bowled in the tournament so far.
