Mumbai Indians are all set to host Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium on May 6, 2018. The match will start at 4:00 PM IST. This will be the first match-up for the teams this season.

Stay tuned for the live updates:

Kolkata is currently placed at the third position with five wins in nine games, while Mumbai has won three out of their nine games and is placed at the fifth position.

Mumbai Indians:

They have regained some hope after defeating Kings XI Punjab in their last game.

Their side seems pretty settled and will likely go into this game unchanged. There might be some discussions about Evin Lewis' form, but if the management decides not to play him, it's simple that Pollard will come back into the side.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Nitish Rana missed the last game against Chennai, which they went on to win due to some batting brilliance from Shubnam Gill and the captain DK. If Nitish comes back, Rinku Singh will sit out, and rest of the line up should be the same considering the pool of players from which KKR have picked their team this season.

Pitch: Wankhede pitch has always been a good batting strip, and the fast outfield has accompanied it well.

It is likely to stay the same way with a very little margin of error for the bowlers.

Weather: It will be a hot day in Mumbai, with the temperature touching almost 35°C. No chances of rain so far.
