VenueBarabati Stadium, Cuttack
The slightly better side in the ongoing tournament, Kolkata Knight Riders, will enter the battle with a comparatively low weighing team, Mumbai Indians. The first are positioned at no.4 at the table with eight points whereas MI are wandering at the sixth position. KKR stunned MI in the opening match of the event and the latter will try to go for revenge.
Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey were the supreme batsmen of KKR in their victory against KXIP while Jacques Kallis is a fine batsman. Piyush Chawla was the most lethal bowler of MI in the previous game whereas Sunil Narine and Morne Morkel are their match winners.
Lendl Simmons along with Ambati Rayudu laid down the foundation for the victory of MI against SRH with their fifties. Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard are improving their batting with every game. Their best bowler, Lasith Malinga requires equally good performance with the ball from his partners Harbhajan Singh and Corey Anderson.
