MI vs KOL Dream11 Match Preview

Mumbai Indians:

Mumbai Indians started the second leg of the IPL with a defeat and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with four wins and four losses.

Quinton de Kock has been in decent form, Rohit Sharma was rested for the last match, and Anmolpreet Singh replaced him and played a couple of aggressive knocks. At No.3, Surya Kumar Yadav has failed to perform to everyone’s expectation.  

In the middle-order, Ishan Kishan has struggled to score runs this season. Pollard and Krunal performed decently in some matches but went out early. Saurabh Tiwary scored fifty in the last game but could not take his team to victory.

The bowling unit performed exceptionally well in the last match but lost control towards the end. Trent Boult, Bumrah, and Milne picked up two wickets each. The crucial wicket-taker, Rahul Chahar, went wicketless in the last match. MI is a strong team, and we can expect a comeback from them.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders surprised everyone with their performance in the last match and jumped to 5th position on the points table with three wins and five losses.

Knight Riders tried a new opening pair in Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer, and they performed brilliantly. Nitish Rana is likely to play at No.3, and Rahul Tripathi will be pushed to the middle-order.

The bowling unit finally delivered a good performance for the team. Andre Russell and Chakravarthy picked up three wickets each, but Narine has struggled to pick up wicketsLockie Ferguson played in the absence of Pat Cummins and picked up two wickets.

Kolkata Knight Riders would like to continue this momentum and qualify for the playoffs.
