This year, Chris Lynn is with Mumbai, so Kolkata will go with the different player combinations in this season. Sunil Narine, the west indies all-rounder, and the Shubman gill is most likely to perform as the opening combination. The team had performed significantly well in the domestic and the past Indian T20 league editions and they are expected to raise the bar of expectation in this season.
Sunil Narine is in form and gave excellent performances in the matches of CPL 2020 that he played recently.
Nitish Rana is the perfect choice for the middle order as he has performed well in the last seasons. Despite performing the job of batsman so well, he can also do bowling for a few hours when it is needed.
On the fourth number, Eoin Morgan will likely to come. The England captain is also in the good form and will form the pillar of the side’s batting lineup. Dinesh Karthik will play at the 5th number to ensure a good finish. In the sixth position, there is a competition between Rahul Tripathi and the Rinku Singh but we think Rinku Singh will be chosen due to his batting capabilities.
Sunil Narine will open the Kolkata winnings in the Indian T20 league and he will perform as an all-rounder. He is the mysterious off-spinner who garners experience in his palm and finger and can do the magic with the ball too. There is a possibility that he would get the chance of bowling in the slow pitches of Dubai. The second all-rounder for the team will be Andre Russell. The cricketer had become the reason for the destruction of many bowling lineups in the past cricket history.
How Kolkata Bowlers can Impact Today Match Prediction
Pat Cumin is the bowler in the team who is capable enough to perform the bowling responsibilities all alone. The Australian bowler shoots the ball with great speed and poses tough challenges for the team in opposition. The other spinner for the team is the Kuldeep Yadav, who will company Pat Cumin as a bowler and the two left places will be taken over by the two Indian pacers, Prasidh Krishna and Shivam Mavi.

Kolkata Mumbai Match Prediction with Pitch Discussion
It was assumed that the Dubai pitch will prove low scoring due to dust bowls ideals for the spinners but the present condition is different from what was assumed actually. The pitch curator has performed its duty well and transformed it into the beautiful batting pitch on the surface added with bounce and grass over it.
Dubai has enough pitch that would help to continue it as a batting pitch for few weeks of starting the tournament.
Mumbai team has already had a match on the pitch and they now are acquainted with it and know that the ball comes nicely to the batsman without many turns on offer. The pitch supports the side who bats second due to a lot of dew on its surface

This year, the Kolkata team will battle for the third title of the Indian T20 league 2020. The Kolkata is ready to spell the season with their charisma. In the past seasons, the team performed decently well by being in the playoffs thrice in the last four seasons.
In 2014 when the Indian T20 league was commenced at UAE, Kolkata won the match. This could boost the confidence of the team but it will be interesting to see if they can do the same in this season or not.
Seeing the records, the negative points that Dinesh Kartik brought in the team should be worked on to make the victory again in the United Arab Emirates.
In the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir, the team won the title twice in 2014 and 2012. After this, they came near to the title many times but they had to face the disappointment. The Kolkata is going to play their first match in the 13th edition of the Indian T20 league against Mumbai who won the winning title four times in the Indian T20 League.
