Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Team Previews

Mumbai Indians (Match Odds – 1.78)

For Rohit Sharma’s team, it is too little, too late. They come in with back-to-back victories but are already out of contention for the next round. The team put on a good performance against the Gujarat Titans, holding their nerve in the final overs to win by 5 runs. They had previously lost to KKR, and Sharma will be looking for a better performance in this game.

The performance of openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan in the last game is a huge relief for the team, as their lack of form has been one of the reasons for the team’s failure. Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, and Kieron Pollard will bat in the middle order and should do well. Tim David made an appearance in the previous game and, along with Daniel Sams, adds to the batting firepower.

Daniel Sams bowled brilliantly in the previous game and will look to take early wickets alongside Jasprit Bumrah. Murugan Ashwin looked good, and the team would like to see more of his and Riley Meredith’s good spells. As the KKR have a strong batting lineup, Kumar Kartikeya and Pollard will need to perform well in supporting roles.

Mumbai Indians Squad

Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Anmolpreet Singh, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Tim David, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills, Basil Thampi, Suryakumar Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Fabian Allen, Sanjay Yadav, Riley Meredith, Ramandeep Singh, Mayank Markande, Aryan Juyal, Arjun Tendulkar, Hrithik Shokeen, Rahul Buddhi, Arshad Khan, Dewald Brevis

Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Kumar Kartikeya, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith

Kolkata Knight Riders (Match Odds – 2.00)

Shreyas Iyer’s team was thrashed by the Lucknow Super Giants in the previous game. The batting collapsed like a pack of cards and folded up for 101 runs, resulting in a 75-run loss. They are eighth on the points table and will be looking for a big win to increase their chances of making the next round. Iyer would be aware of Mumbai’s strengths and would not want to underestimate his opponents.

Baba Indrajith and Aaron Finch will need to get off to a good start in this game, as KKR has struggled to find the right opening pair this season. Shreyas Iyer has also been inconsistent, and he will have to anchor the innings with Rinku Singh and Nitish Rana in the middle order. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine are performing well down the order, which will boost the team’s confidence ahead of this must-win game.

Umesh Yadav is expected to return here, bolstering the bowling attack as he opens with Tim Southee. Narine has been the team’s best bowler, and he will have to keep things under control in the middle overs. Russell has been in good form as well, and the team will need him to be at his best alongside Anukul Roy and Harshit Rana.

Kolkata Knight Riders Squad

Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer (c), Sam Billings, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakaravarthy, Mohammad Nabi, Chamika Karunaratne, Baba Indrajith, Rinku Singh, Anukul Roy, Pratham Singh, Abhijeet Tomar, Rasikh Salam, Aman Hakim Khan, Ashok Sharma, Ramesh Kumar

Predicted XI: Shreyas Iyer (c), Aaron Finch, Baba Indrajith (wk), Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Anukul Roy, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Harshit Rana

Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Toss Prediction

Four of the last five games played here have been won by the team chasing the score. The wicket is ideal for chasing big scores, and teams have historically struggled to post a winning score at this venue. The team that wins the toss will undoubtedly bowl first.

To Win the Toss – Mumbai Indians – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Kolkata Knight Riders – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy has one of India’s best batting surfaces. The ball is easy to hit, and the fast outfield provides plenty of scoring opportunities for the batsmen. Fast bowlers have struggled at this venue because the wicket offers little to them. Spinners thrive on this track because the ball turns sharply.

On May 9, we anticipate a warm and humid evening in Mumbai. The wicket has been flat, allowing batsmen to play their strokes with confidence. Bowlers, particularly fast bowlers, have struggled on this surface, and the team batting first would need to score more than 180 runs to feel safe.

Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match Prediction

The Kolkata Knight Riders will face a challenge in this game. A loss would put an end to their chances of progressing to the next round. Their players have been inconsistent, and the team will need to work together to win this game. The Mumbai Indians have demonstrated their strength in the last two games and will be able to play freely. This would give them a slight advantage over KKR.

Mumbai Indians is the favourite to beat Kolkata Knight Riders at the odds of 1.78.

  • MI has only lost three of the last ten games against KKR, which should boost their confidence.
  • KKR have lost all of their games at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy this season.
  • KKR have lost six of their last seven games and will need to break out of this slump.
