Jagran Sports Desk: Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in game 32 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Friday. Mumbai had registered a comfortable 49-run win over Kolkata during their previous encounter this season.
It remains to be seen whether KKR bowler Sunil Narine will play against Mumbai tonight. Narine had missed the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore after being reported for suspect bowling action. Mumbai, on the other hand, will likely be going unchanged. The match will be played in UAE’s capital Abu Dhabi from 7:30 pm (IST).
The pitch at Abu Dhabi has provided assistance to both spinners and pacers so far, plus the long boundaries make it hard for batsmen to clear the rope. The team batting second have won more matches at this venue than the other two.
The temperature in Abu Dhabi will be 31 degree celsius at the time of the toss and will remain nearly the same throughout the match. The humidity will be 20 per cent and there is no prediction of rain what so ever.
