Openers: Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock
MI skipper, Rohit Sharma opted out of MI’s first match of the UAE leg against CSK on Sunday as he wasn’t a hundred per cent fit. Head coach, Mahela Jayawardene, however, has confirmed that he will be available for the match against KKR.
Rohit was MI’s highest run-scorer during the first leg of the tournament. His inclusion will bolster their batting department. Quinton de Kock, on the other hand, is in sensational form with the bat. He looked dangerous for his 12-ball 17 in the last game against CSK but unfortunately got out leg-before off Deepak Chahar. He would be aiming to produce a big knock on Thursday.
