Having already booked their place in the semifinals of the Champions League T20 2014, the Kolkata Knight Riders will look to keep their tremendous winning run going when they take on the already-eliminated Dolphins in Hyderabad.

KKR have picked up from where they left off in the IPL 2014, when they produced a marvellous run all the way to the title, and Gautam Gambhir's men have looked as formidable as any team in the tournament, en route to easing into the semifinals of the CLT20 2014.

Unbeaten and on a 12-match T20 run, KKR will look to make it lucky number 13 when they face the Dolphins, who are out of the CLT20 2014 after failing to win any of their three previous matches.

"When you start winning, the confidence starts coming in," said KKR assistant coach Vijay Dahiya. "When you are sitting in the dugout you know that the guy who is going out there has the capability to finish games for your side.

"The way the guys have been finishing games also speaks about the confidence they have. The way Suryakumar Yadav finished the innings in the last game [against the Perth Scorchers] was fantastic.

"Physically there was no tension when he was batting and that is the kind of character he is. The good thing is that this team is not dependent on particular individuals. There is a belief in the team that if I won't do it, someone else will stand up to the occasion and deliver it for the side."

If there is an Achilles heel for KKR, it might be the fact that they are yet to be tested batting first. It is clear as a sunny morning that the Knight Riders are at their most comfortable chasing, and the best way for an opponent to put the IPL 2014 champions under pressure, is by forcing them out of their comfort zone by asking them to bat first.

The Dolphins, even if it is a dead rubber, will want to finish their CLT20 2014 campaign off with a win, and they will hope the flip of the coin goes their way on Monday; but they can expect an alert and far-from-complacent KKR lying in wait.

"Every day is a new day and we don't want to make a mistake by thinking that it is going to be a cake walk," Dahiya added. "Even if you are in a very strong position while the game is going on, you cannot take anyone for granted. We respect the opposition and we are not taking them lightly.

"We believe in playing good cricket and holding on to the crucial junctures of the match which will give us the desired results. Players never had that feeling or pressure that they had to keep winning or extend the winning run."
