KKR predicted XI against Mumbai Indians: Tactical change expected as KKR aim for qualification
KKR predicted XI - Dinesh Karthik has to ensure that he picks a team par for the cause on a true Wankhede surface.Updated: May 05, 2019, 13:09 IST
Kolkata Knight Riders had lost six matches on the bounce, Andre Russell rocked up to the press conference, questioned the tactics, questioned his batting position, questioned the decision making, questioned the leadership and in the process, made sure everyone was listening to what he wanted to say.
And then he was pushed to the top order, and KKR won two consecutive matches and after being at a point of no return, they are now one win away from sealing a spot in the playoffs. The fact they can still control their own fortunes is just another reminder of how badly Sunrisers Hyderabad have messed up their chances.
KKR have already got the better of Mumbai Indians in their previous match and they would want to repeat this result. However, for Rohit Sharma and team, a win here could seal a top two finish which always comes in handy. Expect no liberties from either side and Dinesh Karthik has to ensure that he picks a team par for the cause on a true Wankhede surface.
Here is how KKR could line up for their crucial match against the Mumbai Indians:
Predicted XI: Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Rinku Singh, Piyush Chawla, Sandeep Warrier, Harry Gurney
