Head to head: Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians have played 10 matches and Mumbai have a much better head to head record over Kolkata. Mumbai won 8 matches against Kolkata and lost only twice. But the last match played between them was won by Kolkata Knight Riders.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Kolkata have a lot to think about going on to play their 7th match of the season. They have lost 4 matches including the last two loss. So they must get back on the form if they are to play in the semi-final. In the last match all the batsmen failed to perform and they only managed to score 129 runs against Chennai. Bisla who went on to open the innings on the last match failed again. Even Jacques Kallis failed to score runs in last two matches. Gautam Gambhir and Eoin Morgan are the only batsmen who are in form. Yousuf Pathan and Manoj Tiwary though got start in the last two matches but threw away their wickets in crucial times. In bowling on the other hand Kolkata have little to worry as almost all the bowlers are picking up wickets on crucial times. In both the matches Kolkata lost in the last over. So Kolkata needs to work on their finishing. They also need their batsmen to get back in form as if there is not enough runs on the board then it becomes difficult to win in T20 matches.
Mumbai Indians: After starting the season with a loss Mumbai recovered well and won the next three matches and everything were going perfectly. But they lost their way in last two matches and lost both the matches. They were totally outclassed by the opponents and lost by 87 runs and 9 wickets. Batsmen recovered well from the collapse against Rajasthan and in the last match they scored 161 runs losing just 4 wickets. Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Pollard are on good form though there is still problem as to who will open with Tendulkar. Ponting on the last match went down the order but Smith who got chance to open failed as well. So Mumbai should be making few changes in the batting order in this match. But they should be worrying about their bowling as the bowlers only managed to pick up 4 wickets in last two matches. Johnson, Malinga, Dhawan, Ojha all are inconsistent. So bowling is the main area of concern for Mumbai and they want all three departments to click if they are to get back to winning position.
Match will be played at Kolkata at 8pm IST.
