IPL6: War of the Titans; get ready for Sachin vs Gayle
+4
Bangalore: After defending champion Kolkata Knight Riders' easy victory over Delhi Daredevils on the opening day of the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 6), two major contenders for the championship-- Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers-- are all set to take on each other in Bangalore on Thursday.
 
Both MI and RCB have registered average performances in previous IPL chapters, with five victories to the credit of each team against the other. 
 
The Virat Kohli-led Bangalore team includes Chris Gayle, who has proved to be every bowler's worst nightmare so far, and has been adjudged the best batsman in the previous two IPL editions. 
 
And yet, the Mumbai Indians line-up appears too solid to be taken lightly.

Kolkata Knight Riders off to a perfect start
 
Defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders got off to a perfect start in their IPL 6 campaign beating Delhi Daredevils by 6 wickets.
 
KKR scored the required 129 runs with 6 wickets in their hands and 9 balls to spare.
 
Having won the toss, KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir chose to bowl first and his decision paid off with Brett Lee claiming the wicket of Unmukt Chand on the very first ball of the match. Delhi on the other hand was not able to get a partnership. Skipper Mahela Jaywardene scored a valiant 66 but wickets kept loosing on the other end.
 
West Indian Sunil Narine was the pick of the bowlers as he rattled the Delhi batting line up and took 4 wickets to restrict the Delhi lads to a modest 128.
 
In response, KKR got off to a solid start. Gautam Gambhir (41) was given good support by Kallis(23) and Tiwary(23).
 
Delhi did try to build some pressure on Kolkata with some dot balls and wickets in succession but the score of 128 was way too less to defend.
 
Sunil Narine was declared 'Man of the Match' for his brilliant bowling figures of 4/13.
