Rohit Sharma was listed as one of the impact players ahead of the match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday.

Hardik Pandya won the toss and decided to bowl first. In a surprising turn of events, MI’s regular impact sub Suryakumar Yadav was named in the starting 11 while Rohit was named under the substitutes list.

However, with Hardik stressing on the fact that Naman Dhir was the only change in the lineup from their last match, Rohit is expected to take the field in the second half of the game.

Rohit is just 29 runs away from completing 11,500 T20 runs. The former MI skipper has amassed 11,471 runs in 436 matches at an average of 30.83, striking at 134.39.

Meanwhile, KKR will be hoping to break the losing streak at the Wankede Stadium. The purple and gold outfit’s last win away in Mumbai came way back in 2012 when Gautam Gambhir’s side registered a 32-run win.
