The Kolkata Knight Riders-Pune Warriors clash has generated a lot interest but home team's batsman Manoj Tiwary said the team's motto is 'Tension mat le yaar...'

"We don't have any tension to be honest. The motto in the camp is 'tension mat le yaar'(do not think much friend)," Tiwary said at a promotional event here.

Tiwary said they were taking the match as any other IPL fixture despite the presence of city's favorite sporting idol Ganguly in the opponents' camp.

"I know there are a lot of expectations. A lot of people will come and cheer for the Pune team as well as our team. But it's just another match. Our job will be to play to the best of our potential. The way we are playing we can dominate the game as well."

Tiwary also said the momentum is on their side and this time they have it in them to win the elusive title.

"Definitely we are playing some good all round cricket. Everybody is coming and making useful contributions," he said referring to their solid second position in the standings.

"So we are looking great this season. Definitely we can make the highest grade -- that is final. We can lift the trophy this season."
