MI vs KKR Match Prediction & Team Analysis
As the first phase of group matches is about to come to the end, we see all teams are trying to tightly pack them in a better position now. Let’s have a look on MI vs KKR Dream 11 match prediction, team preview and analysis. Mumbai Indians have won five out of their seven matches and held the 2nd position in points table of IPL 2020. They are consistently performing well with bat as well as bowl. They are fully charged after defeating the top ranker Delhi Capitals in their last match. On the other hand, KKR faced a disgraceful 82 runs defeat to the hands of RCB in their last match. However they have no lack of talent, but the performance of their key players is not remarkable yet in the tournament. This is an important match for both the teams but MI definitely has less pressure than KKR. Stay tuned for live updates.
Mumbai Indians (MI)
It would not be wrong to say that Mumbai Indians are equipped with the most balanced Team in this tournament so far. All players are consistent in their role and we see no reason to change the playing 11 for this upcoming game. Their top order is scoring runs very well and skipper Rohit Sharma likes to keep their middle order reserve for death overs. Pollard along with the brothers duo, Hardik and Krunal is doing his job very well in the last overs. Bowlers also has been doing good enough to control the opposition. Boult and Bumrah are picking up the wickets earlier while the spinners Chahar and Krunal Pandya keep a tight hand on the run rate in middle overs. We are hoping to see the same playing XI for this match.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
KKR should have to understand that a team with star players on paper is not going to win the game. They have added Tom Banton in place of Sunil Narine but he must have to adapt himself to the circumstances quickly. Shubhman Gill is scoring runs but as an opener he have to work on his strike rate as well. In spite of putting some good scores on board in previous matches, Eoin Morgan and Nitish Rana are still searching for a remarkable performance since last 4-5 matches. And we did not see the Russell power yet in the season so far. Pat Cummins is struggling for the wickets and therefore the pace attack is supported by young Indian bowlers i.e Nagarkoti and P Krishna. KKR may go for some changes as we can see Kuldeep Yadav on field in this match while bowling all-rounder Chris Green can make his debut in this season of Dream 11 IPL 2020.
Toss Prediction and Pitch Condition
Talking about MI vs KKR match Pitch report, the match will be played at the ground of Sheikh Jayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, which is famous for its low scoring matches. The pitch is covered with grass initially which gave a lot of help to bowlers but now it become bared and we can see the batsman enjoying in this condition. Toss will play an important role as the toss winning team would definitely like to bat first and put a good score to chase. Spinners will get help as the dew comes in later. A score above 160 will be good enough to defend
