Preview:

Chris Lynn is exhibiting phenomenal form at the moment. The opening batsman has hit three fifties already in just the four innings he has played for KKR this IPL and he will undoubtedly be the key man with the bat. Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa have also been consistent and they will look to capitalize on the solid foundation laid by Lynn. Chris Woakes has been the team’s most successful bowler this year. He was once again impressive in the last match with figures of 2-20 and he will be the biggest threat in KKR’s bowling attack.

Kolkata Knight Riders, despite losing three of their previous four games, are comfortably positioned on the second spot in the IPL 2017 standings with 16 points. They fell short by 14 runs to end up on the losing side in their last match against the Kings XI Punjab.

Mumbai Indians don’t have any injury issues to deal with ahead of their face off with the Kolkata Knight Riders. Just the one change is expected in the side, Krunal Pandya might be brought back to replace Karn Sharma.

Kieron Pollard played a gem of an innings 50* from 24 balls which included five sixes, the other night against KXIP to nearly take Mumbai Indians over the line. The big West Indian batsman has now overhauled Nitish Rana to become the leading run scorer for his team. Lendl Simmons who has hit two fifties in his previous three innings is another batsman in good form. Jasprit Bumrah has been the most consistent of all the bowlers in the side. With 15 wickets to his name and an economy rate of under 8, he will be the key bowler for the Mumbai Indians.

Even after losing back to back games against the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians are still leading the IPL 2017 leaderboard and are currently the only team to have 18 points in their kitty. Nitish Rana has not produced a big score in his previous six innings and his form will be a big concern for the team.
