LIVE: Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders

KXIP vs MI will be the first match of the day with R Ashwin-captained Punjab playing their first home game of the season. They’ve been embroiled in controversy in both their opening matches and would hope for a ‘cleaner’ outcome this time around.

In the evening fixture, Kolkata would look to get their away journey on a positive note after winning two in two at home. Fixture tonight against Delhi is their first of four straight away matches before they head home.

IPL 2019 KXIP vs MI and DC vs KKR Build up Highlights:

Narine

In case you are wondering, Sunil Narine is out with an injury. This means KKR will have to find a new opening partner for Chris Lynn, which, by the looks of it, will be Nitish Rana. 

KKR:

Chris Lynn, Nitish Rana, Robbie Uthappa, Nikhil Naik, Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson

Delhi Capitals

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Colin Ingram, Hanuma Vihari, Chris Morris, Amit Mishra, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada, Harshal Patel

Delhi Capitals win the toss, elect to bowl first

So, just like in their previous match, KKR will be setting the score. Andre Russell may have left the lasting impression, understandably so, but one shouldn't forget that KKR's batting lineup looked ominously good in the match. Will DC be able to skittle them out before they put the game out of their hands? 

Rain drops

There were intermittent showers in Delhi hours before the match but it seems to be all clear now. Toss should be on time. 

KXIP's innings

It has been good going for Kings XI Punjab thus far. Chris Gayle smashed 40 off 24 balls and then Mayank Agarwal took it one step further with 43 off 21. Now, opener KL Rahul is in the middle with David Miller. LIVE

Mumbai Indians

They ended their innings on 176/7. Quinton de Kock was the standout with 60 runs but otherwise, it has pretty much been even contributions accross the board.

IS Bindra Stadium record

Avg 1st inn score: 184

Pitch Report

Michael Slater with the pitch report: "The average first-innings score is 169. The average bounce here over the last three years hasn't been that great when you compare with a stadium like Wankhede. There might not be much pace or bounce to work with although batting should still be alright if you dig in. Slower balls when not pitched fuller can be handy as Andrew Tye has shown."

Records

KXIP at home: Kings XI Punjab won all three matches they played at the IS Bindra Stadium in IPL 2018.

MI at IS Bindra Stadium: Mumbai Indians have won their last four matches at the IS Bindra Stadium; the last time they lost a match at the venue was eight years ago!

Team news - MI

With a day between two games, MI didn't practice on Friday. It seems unlikely that they will change the winning combination after beating RCB. Keep an eye out for Yuvraj Singh who returns 'home'

Team news - KXIP

KL Rahul was first to hit the nets in Mohali with the opener yet to get going in the IPL. For the hosts, major reason for concern is the lack of a sixth bowling option and it has been compounded by the fact that Moises Henriques has stayed back in Australia to participate in the Sheffield Shield final. They could bring in Mujeeb Ur Rahman for Hardus Viljoen and replace Varun Chakravarthy with Ankit Rajpoot.

Pre-match talk

Craig McMillan, KXIP's fielding coach: "We will have a very settled squad right throughout the IPL. We haven't got too many guys coming and going; some of the other sides will have to deal with that. Part of Mike Hesson's master plan was to keep a settled squad" 

KXIP vs MI

What to expect? Expect a flat, hard-rolled pitch with a lot of singles/twos/threes on either side of the wicket. And the big lofts straight down the ground. The temperatures are set to be around 30 degrees, with no chance of rain.
