Super-Sunday’s first fixture is set to witness an intense clash as Mumbai Indians take on a confident Kolkata Knight Riders side. Rohit Sharma’s men will be looking forward to continue the winning streak that started last game and it must last till the final league game for them to have some hope of making it to the next stage of the tournament. KKR will be looking to make it a hat-trick of wins following their victories against RCB and CSK and a win tonight will increase the points gap between KKR and the bottom-four.
173 is the average first innings score at this venue so far, this season.
The last game played here saw both the teams lose all their wickets for the first time in this season.
38 wickets have been taken by the seamers in the 4 games played here.
Krunal Pandya has taken 5 wickets and scored 91 runs at Wankhede, this season.
Choosing your all-rounders is going to be tricky since there are four good players in the list. You can go with Andre Russell in place of Hardik Pandya too.
For those who might afford to take a risk, Rohit Sharma could be your captain for this game and this may prove fruitful at the end.
Nitish Rana is set to return to the line-up which may force DK to push Gill back to 5th or 6th position, hampering his run talley.
