In the first semi-final of the Champions League T20, the Hobart Hurricanes take on the red hot Kolkata Knight Riders. The Kolkata Knight riders are on an unbeaten streak of 13 matches and would look to continue their good form going into the semis. On the other hand, the runners-up of this year’s Big Bash, the Hobart Hurricanes, suffered an early loss at the hands of Kings XI Punjab but since then have looked like a formidable line-up.
The first semi-final looks to be a mouth watering clash with the battle between KKR’s spin bowling trio of Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav against the pace of Doug Bollinger, Ben Hilfenhaus and Ben Laughlin in Hurricanes line-up.
