Kolkata Knight Riders

Having blown hot in 2012 and cold in 2013, some sort of balance will be required this year. Consistency in Twenty20 cricket is a tough ask, as is the need to have a slew of superstar individuals act in unison. Therein lies KKR’s challenge – and they’ve really bulked up their pace stocks to help the cause. Morne Morkel, Umesh Yadav, Pat Cummins and Vinay Kumar are all new to the ranks.

Captain: Gautam Gambhir
