Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians IPL Team News

Kolkata Team News

Kolkata Knight Riders started well in their first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, beating them by 10 runs.

Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi had a field, each scoring a half-century and the former bagging the Man of the Match award for his strike of 80 off 56 deliveries. Given their superb form, they are more than likely to feature in the playing XI once again.

In the bowling department, Prasidh Krishna was among the best in that match, picking up two wickets. Shakib Al Hasan and Pat Cummins were also economical with the ball.

Harbhajan Singh bowled an over as well and it is more than possible that he may get the nod for this game too. Otherwise, the alternatives are available in the form of Sunil Narine and Pawan Negi.

Plus, there are no injury concerns for the team, meaning all players are available to start in the playing XI. It is just a matter of picking up the right combination.

Likely XI: Gill, Rana, Tripathi, Morgan, Russell, Karthik, Cummins, Hasan, Singh, Krishna, Chakravarthy

Mumbai Indians Team News for the Match with Kolkata Knight Riders

Mumbai Team News

Mumbai Indians may have started on a shaky note against Royal Challengers Bangalore, but don’t let that narrow defeat allow you to underestimate this team. In all fairness, the players may very well be still warming up.

Despite losing by just 2 wickets, Mumbai were brilliant for most of the game and were in the match up until the final delivery of the final over.

We don’t expect to see a lot of changes in the playing XI for the upcoming game. In the bowling department, the likes of Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, and Marco Jansen should get the nod, especially given Jansen’s superb debut for the Mumbai Indians.

Batting-wise, Rohit Sharma, Chris Lynn, and Suryakumar Yadav are more than likely to feature on Tuesday.

Even though they weren’t as clinical with the bat as expected, they have got the skills to prove otherwise.

Likely XI: Sharma, Lynn, Yadav, Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Pollard, Jansen, Chahar, Bumrah, Boult

Venue & conditions

The game will be played in the Chepauk Stadium, Chennai where the conditions seem to favour batsmen. In the two matches played here, the total runs scored by the teams have only increased.

We expect this match to be a high-scoring affair as usual. The forecast for Tuesday is partly cloudy with no rain.

KKR vs MI Head-to-Head

Mumbai Indians hold a massive lead in the head-to-head tally, having won 21 of their 27 meetings in the Indian Premier League.

Moreover, Mumbai also won both of their fixtures against Kolkata last season in the IPL.

Toss Winner

In terms of toss winners, Mumbai lead the way once again, having won the toss 15 times in their past meetings. We expect this trend to continue in this match too.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back MI to win @ 1.72 with Betway

Mumbai Indians started the IPL 2021 as two-time defending champions. As the most successful team in the IPL history, we simply cannot undermine them at any stage of the tournament.

It is for the same reason why we have pegged them as one of the favourites to win the IPL 2021!

Yes, they may have lost their opening match to RCB but they can bounce back with absolute ease, especially given the sheer quality of players in their roster. Moreover, there were not a lot of fundamental flaws in their opening performance – it was merely that the opposing team was just better that day.

MI even have replacements available in the form of Quentin de Kock, Adam Milne, and Nathan Coulter-Nile should the need arise.

As for Kolkata, they are soaring high on confidence, and building on that win will be the key here. However, if we are to compare the players between the two teams, it is Mumbai Indians who come out on the top.

Lastly, consider the fact that Kolkata Knight Riders have won just 1 of their last 11 meetings against Mumbai Indians in the IPL. We don’t see that trend change anytime soon.

Chris Lynn to score 50+ Runs

Recommended Bet: Chris Lynn to score 50+ Runs @ 4.00 with Betway

Chris Lynn was Mumbai’s top batsman on Friday and missed out on the half-century by just one run. Given his fine form, he should not only get the nod to start in the playing XI once again but should be able to strike 50+ runs this time around.

Additionally, the Australian holds a lot of experience from playing in the Big Bash League through the years. Last season, he was instrumental for Brisbane Heat where he scored multiple half-centuries for the team in the tournament.

Today’s KKR vs MI Hot Bet

Recommended bet: Nitish Rana to be KKR Top [email protected] 4.35 with 10CRIC

Kolkata Knight Riders have generally faced problems in their opening department but Rana addresses that greatly to some extent. He made his point in style against Sunrisers Hyderabad, scoring 80 off 56 deliveries, comprising nine 4s and four 6s.

He has gotten significantly better with every IPL game played which is why this season, he is likely to be the opening batsman for KKR throughout the competition.

Rana also had a terrific run in the Vijay Hazare Trophy before the IPL, where he was among the leading batsman on the team (Delhi).
