Kolkata: In the 23rd match of the Indian Premier League season 10 (IPL 10), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is all geared up to take on a demoralised Gujarat Lions (GL) at the Eden Gardens stadium here on Friday, and the live streaming of the encounter will be provided by hotstar.com and Hotstar mobile application from 8 pm onwards.
KKR and GL will meet for the second time in the tournament today. The first encounter was a nightmare for Gujarat as they were completely outplayed by Kolkata batsmen to hand a 10-wicketr defeat at the Suarashtra Cricket Association stadium in Rajkot.
In the first match, Chris Lynn had played an exceptional 93-run inning off just 41 balls, and was well accompanied by skipper Gautam Gambhir (76 off 48), which helped KKR chase down a huge target of 184 runs with 31 balls remaining.
Suresh Raina (68 off 51) had scored a half-century in the first inning of the match, which helped Gujarat post 183/4 on the scoreboard. Dinesh Karthik had also contributed nicely scoring 47 runs off 25 balls.
Well, it would be interesting to see if Gujarat Lions would be able to avenge their thumping defeat or will continue their poor run in the Indian Premier League.
