Here are the top six questions for the day and what Virender Sehwag has predicted.    

Q1. Who will score more sixes Keiran Pollard or Andre Russell?

This one is an emotional decision for Sehwag given his connection with Andre. Back when they played for Delhi, Sehwag recognized the potential Andre Russell had and developed a strong bond with him. He believes Andre Russell will hit more sixes.

 Q2. Will Kolkata be able to take more than 6 wickets against Mumbai?

Sehwag has a lot of faith in the bowlers of the Kolkata team, particularly Sunil Narine and the way he takes advantage of his 4 overs. Paaji believes that Kolkata will be able to take more than 6 wickets easily. 

 Q3. Quinton De Kock or Shubman Gill, who will score more runs this match?

Sehwag predicts that Shubman Gill will be the better opener. While he knows De Kock performs well, Viru Paaji feels that Quinton has not faced Sunil Narine enough and hence goes with Shubman Gill as his choice for the higher run-scorer.
