Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Mumbai Indians Preview
It’s been such a change in fortunes for the teams in the last few weeks that it’s almost hard to believe right now that KKR would be struggling to reach the qualifiers. The team has suffered a lot from not being able to fit the pieces of the puzzle in the right way and has therefore seen themselves plummet down the points table as the losses have accumulated at an alarming rate.
MI, on the other hand, has slowly but steadily found their mojo despite ringing in changes at different points of time. The main men are in form, and with Rohit Sharma finally striking form in the previous game, most of their headaches are now resolved. The team would be looking to build on the momentum and qualify for the next round as they visit one of the favorite hunting grounds for their Captain.
Kolkata Knight Riders
Form Guide (LLLLL)
It’s not that the Knight Riders played severely in their previous encounter. They did well to counterattack on multiple occasions, but just they just fell short because of the brilliance from Parag and Archer. Kuldeep should ideally make a return to the team now because he’s a proven class act and the team would need him to make a dent in the opposition.
The player under the spotlight
Andre Russell of late hasn’t been Andre Russell that destroyed everything and anything in his sights. He hasn’t got going as well as he could have and that has hindered the team big time. He would be looking to get back to scoring big because it’s highly evident now that the team is suffering without it.
Probable XI: Chris Lynn, Shubhman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna
Form Guide (WLWWL)
Evin Lewis’ addition was an inspired decision, and it helped propel the team in the middle overs. The team looks stable at the moment, and a victory over CSK has given them a big boost. It could be up for question whether the team brings in Ben Cutting in place of Lewis but that’s the only change they might consider at this point of time.
The player under the spotlight
It’s Eden Gardens, and we have Rohit Sharma coming in the team. Lest we forget the hundred, he scored alongside Herschelle Gibbs against KKR at the same venue. He’s returned to form in the last game and would be looking to get on with it on one of his favorite venues.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis, Ben Cutting, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Keiron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Anukul Roy, Jasprit Bumrah, Deepak Chahar, Lasith Malinga
It’s a flat track at Kolkata and has yielded a lot of runs in the previous game. Are you anticipating a score in the region of 400? Highly Likely.
Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Mumbai Indians Prediction
It could be an exciting contest because let’s face, how many matches can one lose on the trot? KKR’s horrible run will come to an end someday. Will that day be today? Looking at Mumbai, it doesn’t seem like it. Mumbai is our pick to add to the misery of the Knight Riders.
