Kolkata Knight Riders eyeing encore

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will look to recreating the magic of the last Indian Premier League (IPL) season under the inspiring leadership of Gautam Gambhir.

Kolkata left behind their failures of previous editions by getting their hands on the IPL trophy for the first time in the fifth edition of the tournament.

Gambhir and West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine were the team's stars last season and they will again be the key players this time around. The other match-winners in the side are Jacques Kallis, Brendon McCullum, Yusuf Pathan and Eoin Morgan.

Sri Lanka's Sachithra Senanayke, who was bought for $625,000 at the IPL auction, is the surprise package in the squad. KKR will also hope to see last year's man of the match in the final Manvinder Singh Bisla to fire again at the top.

Players to watch out for: Gautam Gambhir, Jacques Kallis, Sunil Narine, Brendon McCullum.

New recruits: Sachithra Senanayake, Ryan McLaren.
