Kolkata cruise past Punjab by eight wickets

Lasith Malinga

Kolkata Knight Riders will look for a hat-trick of wins against Kings XI Punjab today at the historic Eden Gardens.

Lynn had undergone surgery on the same shoulder in 2014 and the injury returned to haunt him, throwing his IPL campaign in disarray even as an official word was still awaited.

Lynn's left shoulder has proven consistently troublesome, this being the third time he has injured it in the last two years.

In an interesting turn of events, KKR batsman Chris Lynn may not be ruled out of IPL 2017 after his injury as Kolkata Knight Riders coach Jacques Kallis said that "it's not as bad" as it was initially feared.

Lynn became KKR's latest batting sensation after hitting a 41-ball 93 not out in a record 184-run opening partnership with Gautam Gambhir that helped the team post a 10-wicket win over Gujarat Lions in their opening match on April 7. Lynn hurt his left shoulder while fielding during the four-wicket loss against Mumbai Indians.

But the circumstances now have clearly changed and Kallis' news has definitely raised the hopes of the fans.

He followed that up with a brick 32 when KKR batted first against Mumbai.

Lynn is set to miss Thursday's match and is likely to be replaced by Bangladeshi allrounder Shakib Al Hasan.

Yadav, according to the Indian team physio, had right hip and lower back soreness after finishing the four-match Test series against Australia, where he took 17 wickets.

The 29-year-old has been working up some serious pace lately and on a wicket that is expected to offer a lot of pace and bounce, Umesh's addition might make the difference.

Umesh along with Trent Boult and Chris Woakes are going to be a huge force with the ball if there is good purchase from the re-laid playing surface. Glenn Maxwell has played some outstanding cricket in the matches and you can well expect the KXIP captain play similar roles in the upcoming matches as well.

The players will be clashing off against each other at the Eden Gardens.

Manish Pandey remained unbeaten on 25 while Robin Uthappa came up with a 26-run cameo.

Kings XI Punjab: Hashim Amla, Manan Vohra, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Glenn Maxwell (c), David Miller, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Mohit Sharma, Sandeep Sharma, Varun Aaron, T Natarajan.
