Kolkata Knight Riders bowling coach Wasim Akram on Wednesday said pressure will be on both Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) when the two teams meet in the Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter here on Thursday. Mumbai face KKR in a must-win game here to qualify for the play-offs. “We are playing Mumbai Indians in their den. They are a good side and in a good form. They won five on the trot but lost the last match against RCB. Pressure will be equally on both the sides,” Akram said at the pre-match press conference here.
“Good sides are participating and still we do not know who is going to qualify for the top four. So I think this is the most interesting IPL as far as the table is concerned,” he said. The legendary fast bowler said that although bowlers have been hit for runs, the current season has seen some special bowling spells, variations in bowling compared to the other IPL season.
