The Kolkata team is yet to play at home in this season of the IPL and one can see the team in action in today's match against the Kings XI Punjab. The legendary South African Kallis, however, chose not to give a time frame of Lynn's return and said they do not want to rush the Aussie batsman, who had undergone a surgery on the same shoulder in 2014.

Kolkata mentor Jacques Kallis wrote in his column for Times of India: "We are awaiting the results of the scans to Chris Lynn's shoulder which he dislocated on the field".

Lynn started his IPL campaign with a swashbuckling 93 against Gujarat Lions, setting the stage for a productive season in the cash-rich league.

Against Kings XI, who will come into the game on the back of two victories, it goes without saying that Lynn will be missed.

The good news for the home team is the availability of in-form Umesh.

Umesh was the pick of the quick bowlers in the recently concluded India-Australia series, scalping 17 wickets in eight innings.

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.

KKR threw away their previous encounter against Mumbai and at the forefront was poor death bowling.

Injured Lynn will probably be replaced by Shakib Al Hasan. 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.

Kings XI don't have a good record either at the Eden Gardens or opposite KKR.

The game was very much in the bag for KKR with the flying start they got through Narine, who entertained the Eden crowd by slamming three sixes and four boundaries.

G Gambhir, TA Boult, DM Bravo, PP Chawla, NM Coulter-Nile, C de Grandhomme, R Dhawan, SS Ghosh, SP Jackson, IR Jaggi, Kuldeep Yadav, CA Lynn, SP Narine, MK Pandey, YK Pathan, R Powell, AS Rajpoot, R Sanjay Yadav, Shakib Al Hasan, RV Uthappa, CR Woakes, SA Yadav and UT Yadav.

KXIP, on the other hand, have largely fallen back on Varun Aaron, Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma for the department, with the rather thin spin department being led by Axar Patel.
