The second leg of the Indian Premier League has already begun as this time its the Mumbai Indians that take on the Kolkata Knight Riders for the second time in this tournament at Abu Dhabi. The last time the two teams met at Abu Dhabi, we witnessed an absolute cracker of an innings from Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma as he went on to score a knock of 80 runs.
As far as the table is considered, Mumbai Indians are placed on top of the table along with Delhi Capitals as the two sides keep juggling with the first and second place. Mumbai Indians success must be credited to the all-round performance of all its players, obviously, they came into this tournament having lost seven games on the trot in 2014. But this time in 2020 Mumbai Indians has looked a different side altogether which is clearly seen in their performance this season.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders have looked dodgy this season and their decisions to bat Sunil Narine at the top and batting Rahul Tripathi down the order are being criticised by many. Looking at their performance this season they’ve looked quite up and down though they’re placed fourth in the points table as now.
With both sides looking to get another win under their belt, Let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for when Kolkata Knight Riders lock horns with Mumbai Indians.

1. Kamlesh Nagarkoti
Another year another young fast bowler flourishing in the Indian Premier League, well Kamlesh Nagarkoti is another player who we should watch out for as this pacer is just showing why Kolkata Knight Riders stuck with him for two years. He hasn’t been a constant part of the side this season but has grabbed the opportunities he’s been presented.
With Kamlesh Nagarkoti looking in superb touch, let’s expect this youngster to contribute with the ball going ahead in this season along with Shivam Mavi.
