The Indian Premier League (IPL) : Today the match begins with Kolkata Knight Riders clashing with Pune Warriors at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. In this match special attention for Sourav Ganguly is Playing his home ground, ironically as captain of the away team. He is capable of rousing the passionate Eden Gardens crowd to feverish levels; his iconic status in Kolkata is comparable to Sachin Tendulkar's in Mumbai. 

Pune Warriors : Ganguly, and Warriors, need all the inspiration they can get. They are second from bottom in the league, having lost six out of their previous seven games. Ganguly struggling his last game against Mumbai Indians. He scored 16 off 24 balls. The stage is set for Ganguly's homecoming but fans will need to hope that the weather stays clear.

Michael Clarke is new to the Warriors camp but he is expected to turn things around for a struggling team. He looked comfortable in his first two two games, but he will want to convert those starts. His class against spin could be key to negotiating a tricky Knight Riders attack. Ryder & Uthappa not in his good form. his batting lay down in every match. They have to win this game' if they want to stay in this IPL 5.
