Imran Tahir and Faf du Plessis have gone back home and won't be featuring anymore in the IPL. Pune might be keen on fielding Aussie leggie Adam Zampa for this game.
Although the series for England vs Ireland is over, Sam Billings and Jason Roy won't be returning to the IPL. Also, Morris, Rabada and Mathews from DD have left for international duties and won't play this game.
After their loss against Gujarat, Kings XI might make a few changes to their starting XI. Also, it remains to be seen if Coulter-Nile and Uthappa have passed the fitness test.
THE 10th edition of IPL has provided the platform for players from obscurity to announce themselves on the biggest stage. On the fantasy cricket front too, a few names have made the leaderboard charts.
For Mumbai, Krunal Pandya has not recovered from his injury and won't be playing this game. Ashish Nehra too will skip this game after he got injured in the last match. Jos Butler has to leave for national duties and Simmons will continue to open the innings.
B McCullum has been ruled out and won't be taking part in the IPL. For KXIP, Stoinis too is out and the 4 overseas players are likely to be Guptill, Amla, Marsh and Maxwell.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected in Bangalore for this clash between RCB & KKR. While the hosts will keep rotating their players, it remains to be seen if KKR too will tinker with their squad. Also, there doubt over Uthappa's availability for this game.
While Mumbai might think about getting either Mitch Johnson or Tim Southee in place of a struggling Malinga, DD too could contemplate getting in their match-winner Chris Morris back into the team.
Both SRH & RPS have almost made it to the playoffs and will be keen on sealing the No.1 & No.2 spot. We don't expect any changes from both camps for this all important clash.
