One of the most one-sided rivalries in the history of the Indian T20 League, Mumbai vs Kolkata, will take place on Thursday. Mumbai dramatically won the previous encounter between the two sides as well by 10 runs to continue their domination over Kolkata. However, they are coming off a loss at the hands of Chennai and will be looking to quickly regroup. Moreover, their skipper Rohit Sharma is expected to play this game.
Kolkata, on the other hand, are looking like a dangerous side who played superbly against Bangalore. They skittled the opposition for just 92 runs and then chased it down without much fuss. They will be aware of Mumbai stretching them and it will be interesting to see how they react.

Probable Playing XIs
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Saurabh Tiwary, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult.
Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson.
Rohit Sharma loves to bat against Kolkata and has a century as well against them. The man scored 43 off 32 balls earlier this year in the previous clash between the two teams. Also, having rested well since the fourth Test against England, Rohit will be keen on putting bat to ball and win a crucial game for his side.
Shubman Gill looked fearless in the previous clash against Bangalore. He was unlucky not to get to fifty but must have gained huge confidence from his knock. This IPL season hasn’t been great for him so far but the start to the second leg must keep him in good stead. A good start against the likes of Milne, Bumrah and Boult may win a game for his team.
