A revamped Kolkata Knight Riders will play their first game on Wednesday against Mumbai Indians who faltered in their beginning match of the Dream11 IPL 2020.
MI have never won an opening game since 2013. In the opening match of the Dream11 IPL, MI failed to score a win against Chennai Super Kings. The Rohit Sharma-led squad is now looking to bounce back against KKR.
In what is being termed a match of batsmen, KKR would depend on hitters like Shubman Gill, Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell. They also have season bastman like Dinesh Karthik.
KKR's highest paid recruit Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav will lead the bowling attack with either Prasidh Krishana or Kamlesh Nagarkoti as the second pacer.
For Mumbai, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Ishan Kishan will lead the batting attack while Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jasprit Bumrah will look to keep KKR batters on check.
