Kolkata have been plagued with poor execution, against RCB with there bowlers and against Mumbai with their middle order. Now their Campaign moves to Mumbai and there pitch will be a bit different than that was in Chennai. Here their batting style will be suited to the pitch a bit but still they have to come and do it. In last game Russell hit a few lusty blows so maybe in Mumbai he can manage to score the runs that his team needs. Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan both will look to shrug off the lethargy in upcoming two games.
CSK too had some question of their own, where should MSD and Raina bat and Rituraj Gaikwad’s form. But the team still has 2 wins off 3 games. CSK can thank majorly their bowlers for those two wins. Batting still needs to come good specially on the batting friendly pitches. Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali has been brilliant in the middle overs so has been Sam Curran and DJ Bravo. It will be interesting to see it there will be any change I’m their lineup for this game, only the opening spot can be refilled if the management thinks of any change but that too is highly unlikely looking at the past records of Chennai’s management of backing their players.
KKR’s probable XI: Shubman Gill,Nitish Rana,Rahul Tripathi,Eoin Morgan,Dinesh Karthik,Andre Russell,Sakib Al Hasan,Varun Chakravarthy,Pat Cummins,Prasidh Krishna,Shivam Mavi
