Still, with several new players acquired, there has been plenty more fiddling around with the XI than Chennai, whose major changes were forced due to problems with player availability. Knight Riders experimented with Manvinder Bisla as a wicketkeeper and top-order batsman, but as the season progressed zeroed in on three of the overseas slots - two of their expensive signings this year, mystery spinner Sunil Narine and wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum, joined Jacques Kallis in the first XI. The identity of the fourth took even longer, before Shakib Al Hasan's convincing performances clinched him an extended run in the side and the XI began to look more settled.

Hope shak plays sooooo badley. If he could perform as well with the bat as he has with the ball, this decision would have been so much easier for Kolkata's management. Hope Balaji plays aswell. Looked really threatening last game before he picked up that injury. Commentators were saying he was gaining a lee's effect. This is what playing around good players in the nets does to you!
