KKR vs MI Match Preview
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) play against Mumbai Indians (MI) in 5th Match of the IPL 2016 at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata on Wednesday. KKR have been off to a winning start, as they comfortably beat Delhi Daredevils (DD) in their opening game at home, convincingly by nine wickets. MI, on the other hand, lost their opening tie to the new franchise Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) and now they will look to make a turn around and get set for a successful title defense, leaving that defeat behind.
Therefore, going by the scenario of the previous ties, KKR are highly unlikely to make a change to their playing XI and disturb their winning momentum. However, it would be interesting to see if they field Sunil Narine ahead of an impressive Hogg. While MI, on the other hand, might consider making few changes in the side, as they could bring in Unmukt Chand for Hardik Pandya, while Jos Buttler could also be replaced by Corey Anderson, and Rayudu could don the gloves. Also Mitchell McClenaghan could be replaced by Tim Southee.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians Prediction
Kolkata Knight Riders will win the toss choose to ball first and win the match. The pitch is again likely to stay on the slower side, as the typical Eden track, that is always traditionally known to be slow. Thus, both the teams are likely to field a balanced side, along with an extra spinner. If Narine makes it to the team, all eyes would certainly be on him, as he is well known to be deadly in the conditions of Eden Gardens. Nevertheless, his remodeled action would certainly be under test, and on how it impacts the batsmen as well as the outcome of the game.
