Kolkata knight riders’ robin uthappa said his new team was well balanced and could go all the way in the seventh edition of the ipl. kkr were the first team to arrive in the uae and uthappa took some time out after his batting stint in the nets to talk about kkr’s chances this season.



Osn to telecast ipl matches live


Dubai — the indian premier league (ipl) will be telecats live and exclusively on osn the region’s leading pay-tv network.


This year’s ipl will be even more special with 20 matches being played in the uae. kicking off on april 16 2014 the tournament will enthrall ardent cricket fans in the uae bangladesh and india in three phases with every match telecast live on osn sports cricket hd until june 1. reigning champions mumbai indians battle it out against kolkata knight riders in the inaugural match to be held in abu dhabi.


The exclusive telecast of ipl follows osn sports’ live and exclusive coverage of the icc world twenty20 which featured a special studio panel of cricket legends — vvs laxman waqar younis adam gilchrist and michael vaughan — broadcasting live from the osn’s studios in dubai media city.



“on paper kkr are a very very balanced side. i have been three different teams in the ipl and i have to say that the way they have treated me thus far has been very forthcoming and warm. and you can see that it is like a family and there is a lot of care that goes around within the unit” uthappa told the khaleej times on wednesday.


Uthappa said that momentum will be key to going all the way in the tournament.


“the team looks really good but then again it is t20. but it is about which team does well on that particular day. and also in a tournament like this momentum plays a big part. as a unit when you have momentum going your way you tend to do well a lot more. so it is important that even though you have a good side you need to have momentum going your way. one win under your belt and then you create a momentum and then it builds.


There are going to be a couple of losses but you have to sustain that momentum build on that. those are the teams that actually do well” he added. uthappa was pleased to be back in abu dhabi after eight years. he was here in 2006 when india played pakistan over two odis to open the shaikh zayed international cricket stadium. the tournament was titled the dlf cup.


“it is good to be here in the uae. i was the part of the team that played two odis here in abu dhabi against pakistan in 2006. memories were coming back when i hit the ball today. the wickets are a little slow and does keep a little low” he said.
