MI's Suryakumar Yadav ruled out, KKR make 5 changes
- Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bowl against Kolkata Knight Riders
- Suryakumar Yadav has been ruled out of the remainder of the season
- Ramandeep Singh will be replacing him in today's match
Suryakumar Yadav has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing season due to a left forearm muscle injury that he suffered in MI's encounter against the Gujarat Titans. Ramandeep Singh will be replacing him in today's match.
"We would like to field first, no particular reason. We keep changing what we want to do as a team. The season has been up and down for us. Everyone games us a new opportunity, we need to put our right foot forward. We have one change, Surya is injured. Ramandeep comes in for him," Rohit Sharma said after winning the toss.
KKR, on the other hand, have made five changes to their playing eleven.
"I was looking to bat first, the wicket looks green. It's good that you bat first and find out. Looking at the changes in the batting line up, we have a good batting lineup, we need to put up a good total. The opening partnership has been lacking from the first match. Players are in form, they are out of form, that's the beauty of game. We need to come up with a fresh mind. We have made five changes. Rahane, Cummins, Venkatesh, Chakaravarthy, Sheldon Jackson come in," KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer said.
