Both Mumbai and Gujarat have won their last games and it is unlikely that they would tinker with their winning combination.
Shreyas Iyer might get a look in ahead of Aditya Tare for this game. On the other hand, KXIP might not be tempted to make too many changes either.
Expect perfect batting conditions at Kolkata as we saw in the first game between KKR & KXIP. The hosts might go in with an unchanged line-up, unless they feel Shakib needs to come in for Trent Boult or Colin de Grandhomme. If fit, M Henriues might come in for Ben Cutting or M Rahman in the SRH line-up.
Steve Smith and Manoj Tiwary to return for Pune. For Gujarat, R Jadeja will make a come back too. The Lions will look to boost their bowling after suffering heavy defeats. Faulkner or Tye could make their way in for a top-order overseas batsman.
Virat Kohli has been passed fit and will return for the clash against Mumbai at the Chinnaswamy. Chris Gayle given his impressive record in Bangalore could come back as well.
Shakib Al Hasan returns for the Knight Riders and so will Umesh Yadav. Chris Lynn won't play this game due to his shoulder injury.
Mustafizur Rahman is likely to play this match for SRH against MI. If the Bangla pacer comes in, Ben Cutting might have to make way.
Expect Pune to continue to experiment with their fourth overseas player. We wouldn't suggest taking chances on that player. For DD too there could be some changes. Corey Anderson might come in for Angelo Mathews.
ABD is likely to return for this game and we are picking him in our fantasy team. On the other hand, Virat Kohli might continue to miss another game. Also, it will be interesting to see which overseas pacer RCB play between Mills and Stanlake. For Kings XI, changes are unlikely unless they are forced to with injuries.
