Wasim Akram sees KKR will go in final

DHAKA: Kolkata Knight Riders bowling coach Wasim Akram said the 2012 champions will rely on their "good enough" bowling attack to qualify for the final four of the Indian Premier League, reports NDTV.                          

Encouraged by the presence of many "team players", Kolkata Knight Riders bowling coach Wasim Akram has expressed confidence that his side will make it to the final four in the Indian Premier League as they have a "good enough" bowling attack.       

"We just went for the players we thought are team players and obviously individual match winners, Yusuf is there, Shakib-al-Hasan, Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell. All these guys are team people and a team sport needs players who support each other when things are bad," Akram said in an interview.    

"There will be a rough time. You'll lose couple of games on the trot, which will happen, it's a long tournament. But, it was decision made by the management, we want boys who could actually be good team players apart from being individual match winners," the former Pakistani skipper said on whether KKR had consciously stayed away from star players this time. 

Asked whether he sees KKR in the final four in this year's edition of the Indian Premier League, he said, "I would love to. Yes I can see KKR. I would like to see KKR in the finals. We have good enough team, we have good enough bowling, fielding has been consistent. So, yes, there is always a chance."
