Mumbai: Mumbai Indians to take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 17th Match of IPL 3rd edition here on Mumbai at Brabourne Stadium.
Kolkata have never beaten Mumbai in the previous editions of the IPL. On paper, it seems things could stay that way for another game.
Apart from a fine batting lineup, Mumbai's bowlers have also come to the party early on. Zaheer Khan and Lasith Malinga have been incisive with the new ball. Harbhajan Singh has been good in patches and is yet to find his rhythm. The same we can expect in Pollard and Bravo.
Ambati Rayudu will be available for Monday's game.

The Knights have a welcome change in the team that may just change their outlook for the better. Chris Gayle, the West Indies skipper who charmed the franchise last year even when they were completely down and out, is back again and will play the game against Mumbai Indians
