6:55 pm: 5 minutes away from the toss. Win and bowl first?

Right-arm medium pacer Rasikh Salam will make his debut for the Knight Riders. Dewald Brevis to make his debut for Mumbai Indians.

Pitch report: "It's a fresh pitch. The pace and bounce on this venue is lot quicker compared to the other venues. There is a tinge of green, live grass and it sounds very firm. It's not going to be too different from the last game. This is the only venue where both games have been won by team batting first," says Deep DasGupta.


Mumbai Indians has lived up to its reputation of being a slow starter. With time running out, the most successful Indian Premier League side couldn’t have asked for a better opposition than Kolkata Knight Riders to turn the tide.

Despite Knight Riders having won the IPL twice, Mumbai Indians has been its bogey team. It reflects in the fact that MI  dominates the head-to-head record, winning 22 of the 29 games.


Rohit Sharma and Co. will be hoping to open their account on Wednesday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association’s International Stadium.

The onus will be on Rohit to come good against his favourite opposition. Rohit has amassed a whopping 1,015 runs - most against any IPL outfit - versus KKR. He will be gunning to lead from the front, and will expect Suryakumar Yadav to be fit for the game.

The rejigged Knight Riders has appeared to be one of the most settled units early on in IPL 2022. Umesh Yadav has been a revelation with the new ball and he will be hoping to continue his streak of early strikes against a batting unit that’s heavily reliant on openers Rohit and Ishan Kishan.

Besides, mystery spinners Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine; powerhitter Andre Russell; and the two Mumbaikars - captain Shreyas Iyer and opener Ajinkya Rahane - having found their mojo, the Knight Riders will fancy its chances to earn a second successive win against MI.
