‘Bowlers will give CSK tough time’
Abu Dhabi: Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Rahul Tripathi feels that his side’s bowlers have a measure of the pitch here and they can make life difficult for Chennai Super Kings batsmen in their match tomorrow. After their loss to Delhi Capitals in Sharjah, KKR are hoping for a turnaround at the venue where they have been camping. “We have been practising here for a long time. It’s like a home venue for us now. We have some experience on this ground. They know what lengths to bowl on this wicket,” Tripathi said. “Our bowlers will give a tough time to CSK batsmen.” PTI
