KKR have the full squad available.

Tactics & Matchups – MI will play one of de Kock or Chris Lynn. The former has struggled against Harbhajan Singh (44 balls, 41 runs, 2 dismissals) while Lynn has struggled against Shakib al Hasan (29 balls, 20 runs, 2 dismissals). Meanwhile, no other batsman has scored more runs against an opponent in IPL than Rohit’s 939 runs vs KKR. It’ll be crucial for KKR bowlers to stop Rohit early. Sunil Narine has managed to tie down the MI captain – 129 runs, 119 balls, six dismissals and an average of 21.50 – but he’s unlikely to play. Expect KKR to target MI’s openers with spinners.

Probable XI: Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib al Hasan, Pat Cummins, Harbhajan Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.

Injured – Hardik Pandya has a shoulder issue but will play the match. De Kock is out of quarantine and available for selection.

Tactics & Matchups: Andre Russell needs to be better at playing match-ups. In this contest, MI will pitch Bumrah against Russell. The pacer has dismissed Russell three times, bowled 34 balls and given away just 44 runs. KKR can, however, counter that by having Karthik face Bumrah as much as possible. The former captain hasn’t been dismissed by Bumrah in IPL so far and has scored 50 runs at a strike rate of 192.31.

Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Chris Lynn/Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Marco Jansen, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Mumbai Indians Squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Chris Lynn, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan(w), Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Marco Jansen, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock, Dhawal Kulkarni, Saurabh Tiwary, Aditya Tare, Adam Milne, Arjun Tendulkar, Piyush Chawla, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jayant Yadav, James Neesham, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Mohsin Khan, Yudhvir Singh

  • Nitish Rana in his last six innings has bagged three first-ball ducks and when he’s managed to survive that, he’s scored at least 80 or more.
