Player list for Kolkata Knight Riders - The big boost for Kolkata is the availability of explosive New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum - who scored the most famous Twenty20 century in last year's tournament opener - for the whole season. Chris Gayle was unfit last time around and Kolkata will bank on his all-round abilities to help them build early momentum before he leaves for national duty.

Mashrafe Mortaza the most expensive bangladesh player in the ipl, a popular signing at the auction, could find it hard to fill Umar Gul's shoes but Ajantha Mendis could be their ace. Ishant Sharma flopped last season but he has vastly improved his skills for the limited-overs game in the past year. Also in the mix are local lad Ashok Dinda, who impressed last season, and former India internationals Ajit Agarkar and Murali Kartik, one of the key bowlers in Middlesex's successful Twenty20 campaign.

While Ricky Ponting and allrounder David Hussey may be called on for national duty, fellow Australians Brad Hodge and Moises Henriques, the young New South Wales allrounder, will fill the breach. Cheteshwar Pujara, considered by many to be an India prospect, could well be a value addition.

Player list for Kolkata Knight Riders:
1 Brendon McCullum (wk),
2 Chris Gayle/Brad Hodge,
3 Sourav Ganguly,
4 David Hussey/ Moises Henriques,
5 Cheteshwar Pujara,
6 Wriddhiman Saha (wk),
7 Laxmi Shukla,
8 Murali Kartik,
9 Ishant Sharma,
10 Ashok Dinda,
11 Ajantha Mendis.
