A magnificent unbeaten 100 from Ben Stokes earned Rising Pune Supergiant a thrilling victory over the Gujarat Lions on Monday and now they are back in action against a Kolkata Knight Riders side who are flying high in the IPL.

The Knight Riders had won three on the bounce to move to the top of the table before losing out against Hyderabad last time out following a devastating 43-ball century from David Warner.

There was little they could do to stop Warner and bookmakers expect a response from Kolkata, making them 4-6 favourites to get back to winning ways at Eden Gardens.

Gautam Gambhir will get another chance to lock horns with the Pune bowling attack and the veteran opener could prosper again after scoring 62 in KKR's victory against the Supergiant in Maharashtra.

Gambhir is enjoying a fine season, striking four half-centuries in ten innings, and should be supported at 13-5 to top the charts once again for the Knight Riders.

There's live One-Day Cup action on TV as Hampshire host Middlesex at the Rose Bowl and spinner Liam Dawson looks worthy of support in the Hampshire top wicket-taker market.

The left-armer played his way into the England set-up last season, making his debut first in T20 cricket before a September ODI bow and finally earning a Test cap for the tour to India.

Dawson has started the One-Day Cup in decent form, taking two wickets against both Kent and Essex, and he could cause problems for the Middlesex batsmen.
