Kolkata Knight Riders
Riding from a cherish-able victory against SRH, KKR will be brimming in confidence. But they are facing their nightmare, as KKR has not been that successful against MI. Morgan, Russell, Shakib, Gill, Tripathi and Rana must fire from start to get a grip over the lethal bowling attack of MI. Also Cummins, Varun and Prasid must strike early to get wicket, if not we all know what Hitman and Co could do. Will KKR break MI’s dominance over them? Let’s watch.
Possible – 11
Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy
Coming after a first game defeat, MI will be hoping to get back to winning ways. Ever since the start of IPL, MI has been losing its first game but they’ve comeback to win 5 trophies. Rohit Sharma was led to a run out when he started showing intent, and will he be able to make a mark against his favourite opponent KKR. Lynn Vs Quinny is again a question as QDK is fit to play. Also there is a swap of Chawla for Chahar which is expected in tonight’s game. Boult and Bumrah should get early wickets to stay in the grove unlike last game. Also Jenson Vs Neesham is a dilemma for tonight’s game. Let’s see if MI will continue their dominance over KKR.
Possible – 11
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieran Pollard, Jimmy Neesham, Piyush Chawla, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
Mumbai Indians are known for comebacks, and also KKR being one of their favourite opponents, will MI make a comeback today? KKR on the other hand has found their form and will look to go on their journey to the top. Can KKR handover an upset to MI tonight? That’s a wait for the night. But considering the recent history and trends,
Mumbai Indians might come out on top in this opening clash.
