Gautam GambhirBalaji is a quality bowler and has the capability to take wickets on any pitch
Kolkata: While Rahul Dravid's men appear a bit tired with the hectic scheduling, Gambhir's side is fortunate to get an extra day's break after their win against Bangalore. It took a lot of chopping and changing within the team to get to the winning mode after the back-to-back losses against Delhi and Rajasthan. The four changes in the line-up meant that skipper Gautam Gambhir elevated himself to his usual slot, dropping out of form Kiwi opener Brendon McCullum, a move that set the tone in their much-needed maiden victory this season. Gambhir led the way with a brisk 39-ball 64 to set up a total of 166, which eventually turned out to be a winning one. But their biggest plus point was the inclusion of Laxmipathy Balaji whose fired-up spell of 4-1-18-4, after Kallis took the prized-scalp of Chris Gayle, powered Kolkata to victory.
Rajasthan: It would be a big mistake to write off the Royals who started with successive wins against Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders. For Dravid and Co, having experienced their first defeat in Mumbai -- their first in an away match -- it would be a challenge to conquer the odds outside home. The bowling would be the main concern ahead of their second outing away from home. The bowlers were at the receiving end against Kieron Pollard in the team's 27-run loss to Mumbai Indians. The team would hope that the bowlers stick to the task the way they did against the Kolkata in the first-leg while defending 164.
