Kolkata Team News
Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi had a field, each scoring a half-century and the former bagging the Man of the Match award for his strike of 80 off 56 deliveries. Given their superb form, they are more than likely to feature in the playing XI once again.
In the bowling department, Prasidh Krishna was among the best in that match, picking up two wickets. Shakib Al Hasan and Pat Cummins were also economical with the ball.
Harbhajan Singh bowled an over as well and it is more than possible that he may get the nod for this game too. Otherwise, the alternatives are available in the form of Sunil Narine and Pawan Negi.
Plus, there are no injury concerns for the team, meaning all players are available to start in the playing XI. It is just a matter of picking up the right combination.
Likely XI: Gill, Rana, Tripathi, Morgan, Russell, Karthik, Cummins, Hasan, Singh, Krishna, Chakravarthy
Mumbai Team News
Mumbai Indians may have started on a shaky note against Royal Challengers Bangalore, but don’t let that narrow defeat allow you to underestimate this team. In all fairness, the players may very well be still warming up.
Despite losing by just 2 wickets, Mumbai were brilliant for most of the game and were in the match up until the final delivery of the final over.
We don’t expect to see a lot of changes in the playing XI for the upcoming game. In the bowling department, the likes of Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, and Marco Jansen should get the nod, especially given Jansen’s superb debut for the Mumbai Indians.
Batting-wise, Rohit Sharma, Chris Lynn, and Suryakumar Yadav are more than likely to feature on Tuesday.
Even though they weren’t as clinical with the bat as expected, they have got the skills to prove otherwise.
Likely XI: Sharma, Lynn, Yadav, Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Pollard, Jansen, Chahar, Bumrah, Boult
Venue & conditions
The game will be played in the Chepauk Stadium, Chennai where the conditions seem to favour batsmen. In the two matches played here, the total runs scored by the teams have only increased.
We expect this match to be a high-scoring affair as usual. The forecast for Tuesday is partly cloudy with no rain.
KKR vs MI Head-to-Head
Mumbai Indians hold a massive lead in the head-to-head tally, having won 21 of their 27 meetings in the Indian Premier League.
Moreover, Mumbai also won both of their fixtures against Kolkata last season in the IPL.
In terms of toss winners, Mumbai lead the way once again, having won the toss 15 times in their past meetings. We expect this trend to continue in this match too.
