Kolkata Knight Riders:

The defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders, after facing four defeats must raise their game as they face another struggling giant Mumbai Indians in the sixth Pepsi IPL on Wednesday. KKR have now slipped to seventh position with four points and are struggling to make the top four.

Kolkata’s bowling has been consistent with bowlers Sunil Narine and Sachithra Senanayake. On the batting side, Gautam Gambhir’s form has been a big plus.

According to the current status, Kolkata looks to have an upper hand since they have a relatively stronger bowling unit and are playing in the familiar conditions.

Mumbai Indians:

Mumbai Indians have scored six points after winning three matches out of the six matches played and the team is in the sixth place.

Skipper Ricky Ponting will probably bat in the middle order. His performances in the previous matches were discouraging and Mumbai team will be expecting the usual fiery performance of Ponting soon. Kieron Pollard will be effective if the top order sets a solid foundation.

Squads:

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (c), Yusuf Pathan, Jacques Kallis, Eoin Morgan, Manoj Tiwary, Debabrata Das (wk), Rajat Bhatia, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Sachithra Senanayake, Sunil Narine and Laxmipathy Balaji, Sarabjit Ladda, Brad Haddin, Iqbal Abdulla, Brett Lee, Brendon McCullum, Ryan McLaren, Pradeep Sangwan, Mohamamd Shami Ahmed, Manvinder Bisla and Ryan ten Doeschate.
