Rising Pune Supergiants vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2016 Match 20

Rising Pune Supergiants vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2016 Match 20 at Maharashtra Cricket Association's International Stadium, Pune. Kolkata Knight Riders chasing ability make them different. KKR also become the first team to notch four wins in IPL 2016.RPS may have erred in failing to pick a top all-rounder (Faulkner / Watson) at pre-auction stage. Unlike previous IPL seasons, with a new team MSD had to experiment to find a strong combination. RPS showed great resilience in the previous match v RCB to stage a fight back after fielding errors & poor start while batting. Excellent partnership between Rahane & MSD setup a strong finish. RPS however missed an opportunity of a win over RCB (w/o Gayle) by not scoring a possible 25 runs in 12 balls in end overs. RPS need to pick players with good fielding skills & persist with Ishant Sharma. faf, Smith, Marsh/Morkel, Perera have to be the preferred choice as overseas player combination. KKR have a strong opening partnership, good bowling but have significant weakness in batting. If RPS play to potential a comfortable win for them is on cards.KKR would trust Shakib a bit more & let him play at No. 3 which he did several times for his country. That being said, the loss of Pandey is a big blow as he is the only specialist batsman with substantial experience in KKR's middle order.With Pandey ruled out for the next few matches with Chicken Pox, I think KKR need to bring in Lynn/Munro for this match. Pune is a seam-friendly pitch and both these players can play seam in these conditions since they play it in NZ and Aus. Munro can be a dibbly-dobbly bowling option too. Sheldon Jackson scored good runs in the practice match before the IPL so he might replace Pandey. It won't turn much. KP is not there who struggles against left-arm spin and Shakib is not in form with the bat so I think the team should be: Gambhir Uthappa Lynn/Munro Yusuf Surya Russell Chawla Narine Umesh Unadkat Morkel/Hogg Horses for courses kind of a team from my side for tomorrow.
