41st match: Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kolkata Knight Riders at Centurion, May 12, 2009

Let us see whether Kolkata Knight Riders will win this match. There are at the bottom of the table with 1 win and also Bangla Tiger is in bench. Atleast they can check their bench strength giving chance for new players in their squad. So they can come back with a good team atleast next season IPL match.

Four changes for Kolkata: Ajantha Mendis, Angelo Mathews, David Hussey and Arindam Ghosh are in. But still no Mashrafe Mortaza. Out go Brad Hodge (surprisingly, for he has been their only performer), Sourav Sarkar, Moises Henriques and Morne van Wyk.

Bangalore have got in Ryder, as Kumble said at the toss, in place of van der Merwe. And they have got in B Akhil for Mithun.

Toss: Anil Kumble has won, and will bowl. He believes his side still has a chance to get into the last four. The big news is, Jesse Ryder will open for them.
