Going into the crucial clash, Kolkata have an abysmal 5-15 head-to-head record against Mumbai in all the editions of the league.

Sharma grabbed 4-16 off his deceptive leg-spin bowling while Bumrah took 3-7 as Knight Riders were bowled out for 107 in 18.5 overs after Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field first. In fact, it has got worse for Kolkata this season with Gambhir's men losing both matches - home & away - to Mumbai this year. Although Mumbai has won both the matches against Kolkata in the league stage, they can not take the KKR side lightly.

Undoubtedly, the fate of the KKR in qualifier match against MI will be much depend on Gambhir's performance on Friday.

Mumbai's initial progress in reply was uncertain, Piyush Chawla trapping Lendl Simmons lbw and bowling Ambati Rayudu inside the first six overs, either side of Parthiv Patel edging Umesh Yadav behind.

Adding to this, the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - have been exceptionally good whenever the team has needed them.

The defeat spurred the Knights to win the next three games in succession against Daredevils, Rising Pune Supergiants & Royal Challengers Bangalore which catapulted them to the top of the table.

Veteran Darren Sproles, second-year pro Wendell Smallwood and rookie Donnel Pumphrey will team with Blount in the backfield. So while everyone would have been happy to see Blount return, the team found a way to upgrade the position for 2017.


KKR, who lost to Mumbai by nine runs in their last league encounter, made four changes to the side with Manish Pandey injured and Suryakumar Yadav replacing him. Kolkata's other New Zealander, Trent Boult, did not play, neither did Mitchell McClenaghan or Tim Southee for Mumbai. The continuous showers reduced the KKR chase in Eliminator held at the same stadium on Wednesday night to a six over the affair.

Sunil Narine: Excellent discovery by skipper Gambhir, now Sunil Narine is playing as a potential all rounder.

What the pitch does do, though, is bring both KKR and MI's bowlers into play. Narine's quickfire runs helped KKR get off to fliers and set the platform for big totals. He is not big, doesn't hit big sixes or plays funky shots but Gambhir is now the second highest run scorer (486 runs in 15 matches) and has also led KKR admirably.

On the other hand, KKR is equipped with Chris Lin and Robin Uthappa. He was in red-hot form early in the season but seemed a tad off-colour in the business end.

Krunal Pandya showed maturity, finishing as Mumbai's top scorer with 45 off 30 balls, while Rohit contributed 26. Umesh Yadav bowled with brisk pace all through the tournament.

Sharma, 29, hurt Kolkata in the seventh over of the innings with two wickets on consecutive deliveries to send skipper Gautam Gambhir (12) and Colin de Grandhomme (0) back to the pavilion.
