Mi vs KKR Preview

Mumbai Indians, who moved down to Chennai Super Kings, will require a win to hang on to their top 4 spots, as a slip-up can force them into the bottom half. They will have their sights fixed on the consistency of skipper Rohit Sharma, who remained out of the match against CSK as he has been recovering from a niggle that he sustained during the tour of England. And as for the Knight Riders, they secured a bright start to the second phase of the IPL 2021 with a big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, a 9-wicket toweling.

The win had elevated them to the 5th spot from the seventh spot but to they need to keep winning to maintain their hopes for enrolling on the top 4 and get a ticket for play-offs. It may be a benefit for them that they have already had a taste of the situation in Abu Dhabi during the match against the Royal Challengers and it could be an asset for them. They will be requiring that KKR batsmen and bowlers would once again present that cohesive effort.

MI vs KKR Key players

Rohit Sharma 

Rohit Sharma claims a great record against KKR. His only century in the league has come against them Additionally, he missed the first match against CSK because of that he has to win this match.

Jasprit Bumrah

Whichever format it might be, Jasprit Bumrah is always a menace for the opponent batters. He had a reasonable first half of the IPL 2021, where he grasped 6 wickets in 7 matches at an economy of 7.11. Jasprit Bumrah has been exceptional for Mumbai within a previous couple of IPL editions. during this IPL, the right-arm fast bowler has picked up eight wickets from as many games at a powerful economy rate of 7..25.

Team News

MUMBAI INDIANS

  • Mumbai Indians were without captain Rohit Sharma in their failure to Chennai Super Kings but we anticipate him to return for this fixture. The side is famous for getting slow starts in the IPL and this appears to have continued to slow restarts in the tournament.
  • Mumbai Indians were beaten by fierce rivals Chennai Super Kings after failing to chase down 157 for victory, ultimately falling to a 20-run defeat.
    The absence of both captain Rohit Sharma and all-rounder Hardik Pandya thanks to injury was an enormous blow for Mumbai and they’ll be desperately hoping that both are the fit to play here.
    KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS

  • Eoin Morgan’s side created a top-quality performance with the bat and ball on Monday evening and they seemed like a team re-born. If they can get their star performer to start playing at that level consistently then they will shoot up the table
  • Following such a robust all-around showing from Eoin Morgan’s side, it might be a surprise if they were to vary their starting line-up for this game.
