IPL 2013: Defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their backyard
Gautam Gambhir will lead his franchise Kolkata Knight Riders against the Virat Kohli-led side Royal Challengers Bangalore at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore, at 4pm on April 11 in the 13th match of IPL.

The IPL champions lost their previous game against Rajasthan Royals and they would like to get back to their winning ways. The Royal Challengers are confident after their comprehensive victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game.

A SWOT analysis will give us a clear idea on how well these two teams are pitted against each other.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Strengths: A strong batting line-up which boasts of the most devastating batsman of T20 cricket, Chris Gayle, in the opening slot. Presence of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers in the top and middle-order makes them a force to reckon with. R Vinay Kumar’s form and Muttaih Murlitharan’s skill with the ball makes this look unbeatable.

Weaknesses: Tillakaratne Dilshan’s form with the bat has been a worry for the RCB.

Opportunities: An opportunity to beat the defending IPL champion as RCB enjoys the home condition and support.

Threats: The famed RCB batting line-up should be careful of Brett Lee’s searing pace early on in the innings. Sunil Narine’ spin bowling is still a mystery to many.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Strengths: Brett Lee’s ability with the new ball, Jacques Kallis’ all-round skills, Eoin Morgan’s form with the bat and Sunil Narine’s mystery with the ball under the inspired leadership of Gautam Gambhir makes KKR a cohesive unit which can dictate terms to any side on their day.

Weaknesses: Yusuf Pathan’s form with the bat is a cause for concern for the KKR team management.

Opportunities: A win for Gautam Gambhir and company will show that their loss against Rajasthan Royals was just an aberration from where they can bounce back.

Threats: Chris Gayle can murder any bowling attack once he is on song. He can single-handedly take the game away from KKR.

Royal Challengers Bangalore team:

V Kohli (Captain), MA Agarwal, KP Appanna, S Aravind, KB Arun Karthik, CD Barnwell, DT Christian, AB de Villiers, TM Dilshan, CH Gayle, MC Henriques, SP Jackson, M Kartik, Z Khan, AB McDonald, A Mithun, A Mukund, M Muralitharan, KK Nair, Pankaj Singh, P Parameswaran, HV Patel, CA Pujara, R Rampaul, S Sandeep Warrier, RP Singh, S Sohal, J Syed Mohammad, SS Tiwary, JD Unadkat, DL Vettori, R Vinay Kumar, VH Zol

Kolkata Knight Riders team:

G Gambhir (Captain), S Ladda, L Balaji, R Bhatia, MS Bisla, DB Das, BJ Haddin, Iqbal Abdulla, JH Kallis, B Lee, BB McCullum, R McLaren, EJG Morgan, SP Narine, YK Pathan, PJ Sangwan, SMSM Senanayake, Shami Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, LR Shukla, RN ten Doeschate, MK Tiwary
