Two former winners of the Indian Premier League clash today as 2012 champions Kolkata Knight Riders take on the Mumbai Indians.
The match was meant to take place at Eden Gardens, but it has been switched to the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack for security reasons.
Cuttack was the venue of KKR’s last outing – a nine-wicket win over the Kings XI Punjab.
Kolkata are now looking for their third victory on the bounce – a result that would keep their charge for the playoffs well on course.
Meanwhile, Mumbai’s top-four hopes will be all but over if they lose.
Like the Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma’s side come into this game on the back of a win, after chasing down 158 with seven wickets and eight balls to spare to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday.
Batting down the order at four, captain Rohit scored the winning runs against Hyderabad, but it was Lendl Simmons and Ambati Rayudu who did most of the damage, providing 68 runs apiece.
Holders Mumbai have a dominant head-to-head record against KKR, having won 10 of their 13 previous IPL encounters.
However, Kolkata came out on top the last time that these sides met, securing a 41-run win in Abu Dhabi.
Prediction: Mumbai to gain revenge for their thrashing in the UAE by registering a low-scoring victory in Cuttack.
