Kolkata has batsmen like Manish Pandey, Robin Uthappa, Suryakumar Yadav and Yusuf Pathan, who have done well in the IPL. Mumbai’s captain Rohit Sharma should also worry due to formidable form of KKR opener Chris Lynn who scored an unbeaten 93 off 41 balls. Captain Gautam Gambhir also scored 76 runs. KKR has great spinner in the form of veteran Piyush Chawla and Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav who would like to take advantage of Mumbai’s opening vulnerabilities .
At the same time Mumbai’s batting order failed in the first match, though in the last over, Hardik Pandya crossed the 180-figure mark for the by scoring 30 runs in it .
Mumbai’s opening pair Jos Buttler and Parthiv Patel gave good start to the team, but the middle order did not do anything special. Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma also failed from the bat. Many Mumbai batsmen could not turn a good start against Pune in a big innings. Captain Rohit Sharma could not face South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir
In such a situation, Mumbai would be expected to perform better against Kolkata in their batting order
Kolkata Knight Riders Team: – Gautam Gambhir (Captain), Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Woakes, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Trent Boult
