  • Excellent batting from Lewis. He pulls a short ball from Prasidh Krishna over deep backward square leg for a six and then mauls Piyush Chawla over deep square leg. The ball sails out of the ground and then follows it up with two boundaries. Mumbai Indians have reached 56/0 after six overs and looking good for a big score.

Mumbai: Kolkata Knight Riders have won the toss and will bowl against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium. Rohit Sharma’s side are unchanged but KKR have two changes, with Nitish Rana replacing Rinku Singh. However, Shivam Mavi is out injured and Prasidh Krishna, who replaced Kamlesh Nagarkoti is into the side. Here are the playing XIs of both sides.

A warm welcome to the first match of the Sunday double-header between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders. The equation is simple for both sides. A loss for Rohit Sharma’s side will dent their play-off chances severely while a win for Kolkata Knight Riders will see them close in on a spot in the knock-outs.

Mumbai Indians’ resurgence might have actually taken a bit too long this season given that the most glorious side in IPL history now stands at a juncture where they need to win every game.

And against Kolkata Knight Riders, they face not just a tricky test, but a daunting one.
For a start, Mumbai Indians’s bowling has been nothing short of wayward this season.

Barring Jasprit Bumrah (6.75), three of their top four bowlers — Hardik Pandya, Mayank Markande and Mitch McClenaghan — have all been hammered at economy rates of 9.12, 7.93 and 8.52, respectively.

Rohit Sharma will be well aware of what awaits him on Sunday. It isn’t quite the traditional batting pair that his boys will have to bowl to. There’s a stark contrast in the manner in which Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine approach the game. Even if they depart cheaply, KKR’s batting depth stems from the fact that their highest run-getter is their skipper Dinesh Karthik who comes in the middle-order.
