After the home match of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) was shifted from Chennai to Ranchi, Kolkata Knight Riders‘ (KKR) first match in Eden Gardens has been shifted to Cuttack, due to security reasons, following the last phase of Lok Sabha General Elections. KKR will face Mumbai Indians (MI), who are ranked at seventh position in the points table.

 

The last time the two teams met, Kolkata defeated Mumbai at Abu Dhabi. Led by the heroics of Jacques Kallis, Manish Pandey and Sunil Narine, KKR beat MI by 41 runs. Back in India, Mumbai will aim to put the past behind and will look to avenge the loss. Kolkata’s batting line-up will be powered by the likes of Gautam Gambhir, who found his rhythm back, after failing in the initial matches. Whereas, Mumbai has found a hero in Lendl Simmons, who averages 58 after two matches. Catch the Live Blog of the match here.

The Kolkata outfit, though, has been struggling to find its feet in the ongoing tournament, but back-to-back victories, especially a win against a strong Punjab side at this very venue, must have done its confidence a world of good. The defending champions, with just three victories from nine games so far, are well aware that they would have to win all their remaining matches if they want a berth in the play-offs. They will take inspiration from the seven-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad on Monday night. Despite most of their batsmen being among runs, Mumbai have faltered a little too often in this tournament so far. Skipper Rohit Sharma and West Indian powerhouse Kieron Pollard have been successful in the current season. Even Ambati Rayudu have contributed with runs.
