Kolkata Knight Riders coach Trevor Bayliss is looking to players like Gautam Gambhir and Yusuf Pathan for tips on how to dismiss Sachin Tendulkar.

The Mumbai Indians vs KKR Indian Premier League clash at the Eden Gardens is scheduled for Saturday. “We have a number of Indian players who play against him.

I’m sure they would have their thoughts. Obviously, it would be a difficult assignment any time you play Sachin,” the Australian said.

The Gambhir-led Knight Riders now occupy the top slot in the league table with 17 points from 12 games. They are already through to the playoffs.

Bayliss was happy with his batsmen’s showing in the last few games. “In the last five or six games, our batsmen have done well. Gambhir has been superb and Brendon McCullum has started to get runs,” he said.
