    According to Danny Morrison and Matthew Hayden, who work for the broadcaster, the pitch is a bit grassy with a slow bounce. Fats bowlers could pick up wickets and weather is also hot with a breeze coming in. Spinners also take plenty of wickets in this venue and could be on top tonight too! A tough time for batsmen today!

    One to watch: Andre Russell

    The West Indies all-rounder was in fantastic form during KKR’s win vs RCB. He took three wickets in three overs and only conceded nine runs. He accounted for the important dismissal of AB de Villiers and took the wickets of Srikar Bharat and Mohammed Siraj.

    He will be crucial to KKR’s performance tonight!

  • 18:26 (IST)

    Rohit Sharma set to reach unique milestone!

    Rohit Sharma could become the first Indian to hit 400 sixes in T20 cricket, if he registers three maximums vs KKR. With 397 sixes in T20 cricket, he is currently eighth in the all-time list, which is headed by Chris Gayle (1042). Kieron Pollard (756) is second in the list, followed by Andre Russell (509), Brendon McCullum (485), Shane Watson (467), AB de Villiers (430) and Aaron Finch (399).
