Kolkata Knight Riders Preview & Form
Given its huge, enthusiastic fan base, it’s hard to be KKR and not proceed to the second round. A fun statistic is that KKR and MI are the only two of the five IPL teams who have played all 12 seasons of the IPL and actually won the competition at some point. In that regard, however, the Knight Riders are two titles behind MI, and after recent disappointing seasons, they would no doubt love to be back on top. Stars like Andre Russell, Lockie Ferguson, Eoin Morgan, Tom Banton, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine, and Pat Cummins obviously stand out. With such a well-rounded team, they can easily fancy their chances if they are able to work as a unified force. One thing that they’ll be wary about is that of their last 5 encounters, Mumbai took four.
Mumbai Indians Preview & Form
After a thoroughly regrettable start, Mumbai Indians will be disappointed and itching to prove themselves. With a super strong squad, there’s no reason for them not to be able to, but a sudden faltering has been known to do crazy things to a team. In their last game, they seemed to put up a good score before Chennai bowlers caused a near-collapse of their lower order. Overall, the likes of Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Hardik and Krunal Pandya, and Suryakumar Yadav all failed to go big with the bat, and when it was their turn to bowl, Only James Pattinson and Trent Boult put the opposition batsmen under any discomfort, although all 5 bowlers who bowled got a wicket each. If they are to do better, their immensely powerful batting lineup must do better.

KKR vs MI Match Prediction
Starting afresh against a slightly pressured Mumbai side, KKR should exploit the chinks in the champion’s armour. Expect Shubman Gill and Andre Russell to get the runs, while Sunil Narine and Pat Cummins strike with the ball.
Mumbai will be hell bent on picking up a W from this match, and their players should play accordingly. Expect Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav to make the ball cross the ropes, while Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult make the ball squeeze out mistakes from the batsmen.
