The second match of the weekday double-header is KKR vs CSK. KKR have to make some tough decisions ahead of today’s match. With Sunil Narine & Lockie Ferguson waiting to be included in the Playing XI. KKR’s management could remove Shakib & go for either of the two. Shivam Mavi could come in playing XI in place of Harbhajan Singh keeping in mind Wankhede Stadium’s seamer-friendly pitch.
KKR Predicted Playing XI:
Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Andre Russell, Shakib Al Hasan/ Lockie Ferguson/ Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy, Harbhajan Singh/ Shivam Mavi and Prasidh Krishna.
CSK is in terrific form & should go with the same playing XI for today’s match. Ruturaj is struggling right from the beginning of the tournament but would not be replaced as the head coach Stephen Fleming continues to back Ruturaj Gaikwad. However, the probability of playing with an in-form Robin Uthappa against his former side is tempting. CSK could opt for including Uthappa in the Playing XI for today’s clash.
CSK predicted Playing XI:
Ruturaj Gaikwad/ Robin Uthappa, Faf Du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C/WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, DJ Bravo, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar.
It should be a warm & clear evening in Mumbai with an average temperature of around 30 degree Celsius. There is no chances of rain interrupting the match proceedings. While the dew could play a role in the latter stage of the match.
Just like previous matches, the pitch at Wankhede should favour the batsmen. However, the pitch could support seamers to a certain extent. You can expect a high scoring competition on batting-friendly Wankhede stadium. The team that will win the toss should opt to bowl first. Any total above 190 runs is a competitive target at the Wankhede pitch.
