Mumbai is the all-round better team this season. MI’s performance against DC was clinical and deserved the two points for their performance. The second team in this season to chase the target, after CSK, with a dew factor settling in late as an extra burden. A well-balanced campaign, adapting well to the UAE ground and proving their mettle as a champion side. Both batting and bowling performances by the team are consistent and is vital in the team’s push to the tabletop.
Possible – 11
Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Trent Boult, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah.

Although the team had a lot of talented players, they failed to shine in their last game against RCB. The bowling unit’s failure to pick up the initial wickets let loose the RCB batsmen to score a massive target. The pressure on the batsman was too high after the loss of opening duo. KKR has all the strength in their lineup with the likes or World Cup winning captain Morgan, Muscle powered Russell, India’s young prospect Gill and World’s best bowler Pat Cummins. KKR is alive in this tournament and should give a tough fight to stay on the road to playoffs.
Possible – 11
Subman Gill, Tom Banton, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadhav, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.
In this season, the team which bats first wins in almost every game, with a couple of exceptions. KKR’s bowlers should try to dominate the MI batsmen and restrict them to a lesser score. Still, after playing around 4 games in the same venue, MI’s experienced batting and bowling unit will give KKR an uphill task.
Mumbai Indians are expected to win comfortably in this clash of heavy weights.
