When: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rising Pune Supergiant, May 3, 2017 – 20:00 IST
Where: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
Rising Pune Supergiant: RPS should not make any changes to the eleven that won them the game against Gujarat Lions to consolidate their standing in the Top Four. While there was a whole lot of doubt about Stokes’s fitness before the previous game, his match-winning knock has now ensured that apart from any niggle, he is not going to miss out at all for as long as he is around for Pune’s campaign.
Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith (c), Manoj Tiwary, MS Dhoni (wk), Ben Stokes, Daniel Christian, Washington Sundar, Jaydev Unadkat, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir
Kolkata Knight Riders: The KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir had hinted at the toss in the previous game that if it ain’t broke, why bother fixing it? Whether he has spotted some chink in the armour following his side’s loss against SRH, it is highly unlikely, which means the hosts could play the same eleven again. Kuldeep’s assuring success and not-much-seen trickery should keep him ahead of the experienced leggie Piyush Chawla. That aside, when does Shakib Al Hasan play his next game is also a question that seemed to be doing the rounds on the eve of the match. He can only come in at Colin de Grandhomme’s cost, but that looks unlikely.
Probable XI: Gautam Gambhir (c), Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa (wk), Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Sheldon Jackson, Chris Woakes, Colin de Grandhomme, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav
