Monday, July 22, 2024

Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya elected to bowl against Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 51 of IPL 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium here on Friday.

Hardik said they have made one change in the playing XI with Naman Dhir coming in for Mohammad Nabi.

“It looks quite tough for us but at the same time, we want to play good cricket. Good to be back home. Looks like a good track and it’s a fresh wicket. We have not played on this surface. One change: Naman Dhir comes in place of Mohammad Nabi,” said Hardik Pandya at the toss.

Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer said they are going in with an unchanged side.

“It’s all about doing the small things right. The message is crystal clear: each individual knows his role and responsibility. Batting first, we’re going with the same team,” said Shreyas.

Mumbai are going into this game after three successive defeats while KKR have two wins and one loss in their last three matches. However, Mumbai have dominated the head-to-head series having won 23 out of 32 matches while KKR have won nine.
