KKR takes on Mumbai Indians in the reverse fixture at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday, April 11. This is the reverse fixture between the two sides. KKR are on a three-match winning run defeating DC, MI, and LSG in their previous three games. 

They defended 235 against LSG and 170 against MI at the Wankhede Stadium. The win against MI at Wankhede came after 12 long years for the Knight Riders. They are looking like a solid unit as per the experts and looking good to seal their spot in the playoffs in the next game. 

KKR are leading the points table with the best NRR among all the teams. Rajasthan Royals' loss to DC in their last game meant that KKR maintained the top position. Now they can become the first team to make it to the playoffs if they get to 18 points.

Kolkata Knight Riders have been playing with the same almost throughout the season and will back the same side to deliver once again.

Phil Salt (WK)

Salt will open the batting for KKR. He scored 32 off 14 balls against LSG and has scored 429 runs for KKR so far. He has been striking at over 180 this season. 

Sunil Narine 

Narine will open the batting with Salt. The duo have forged a brilliant partnership at the top. He scored 81 off 39 balls against LSG and has scored 461 runs this season so far. He and Salt both have a chance to get past 500 runs in the next game. 

Angkrish Raghuvanshi

Raghuvanshi has been given a longer rope by KKR at three. He scored 32 off 26 balls and added a 79-run stand with Sunil Narine which was crucial for the team. 

Shreyas Iyer (C)

Iyer the skipper will slot in at four. He has scored 280 runs for the season in 11 games at a strike rate of 138.61 with one fifty-plus score. Unfortunately, he has won too many tosses this season. 

Venkatesh Iyer

Iyer will slot in at five. He scored 70 in the first game against MI. It was due to his score that KKR reached 169 and defended it in the end. He has scored 320 runs against MI in five innings. 

Rinku Singh 

Rinku will slot in at six. He has not played too many deliveries this season and did not score too many runs. He scored 9 off 8 balls against MI and just 16 off 11 balls against LSG.

Andre Russell 

Russell will slot in at seven. He and Rinku have been used as a floater this season. Since that half-century against SRH and the 41 off 18 balls against DC, the all-rounder has not scored too many runs. He has picked up 13 wickets this season so far. 

Ramandeep Singh 

Ramandeep has been very handy down the order. He scored 35 off 6 balls against LSG and took two brilliant catches. He also gives the KKR batting lineup massive depth. 

Mitchell Starc 

Starc will slot in at nine. He has now picked up 12 wickets for the season so far. He picked up a four-fer against MI to help KKR win the match. 

Harshit Rana 

Rana will slot in at ten. The KKR pacer has now picked up 14 wickets for the season after his three-wicket haul against LSG. Overall, he has 20 IPL wickets. 

Varun Chakravarthy 

Chakravarthy concludes KKR's likely XI. He is now the leading wicket-taker for KKR with 16 wickets this season so far. After a slow start, he has taken nine wickets in his last five games. 

Impact Sub: Vaibhav Arora / Manish Pandey

Arora will be the Impact Sub for KKR. He has been used in that role by the franchisor consistently. He has picked up nine wickets in seven games despite being wicketless in the last two games. Manish Pandey is the other Impact sub-option. KKR used him in the first match against MI with the Knight Riders reeling at 57/5.
