Following a convincing win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are expected to give a tough fight to the Group B toppers Warriors in their Champions League T20 outing at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here today.

The Knights, who had a disastrous start losing first three ties, raised hopes when they beat RCB by nine wickets with 15 balls to spare on Thursday. The KKR bowling, led by Aussie speedster Brett Lee, had a much-improved show against the RCB. The KKR team management would surely hope to see similar efforts when they take on the Warriors.
Warriors may be sitting pretty at the top of the table, but a resurgent KKR are looking to improve by each passing day. Jacques Kallis, skipper Gautam Gambhir and Aussie wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin have all got back their form which may be a worry for the South African outfit.
