IPL is back with a bang and audiences are served with the spices of T20 cricketing action.  Kolkata Knight Riders started their season with a brilliant victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore and it was a sweet revenge for their last season`s dismal performance against the same opponents. Mumbai Indians failed to win the match against their arch rivals Chennai Super Kings despite dominating the early part of the game. They will be dejected over the loss and will be looking to return to form against their much favored opponents. The winner of this match will take the fourth place in the points table.

Mumbai Indians Preview

Mumbai Indians are expected to have the services of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya in this match. Saurabh Tiwary played a lone battle of 40-ball 50 in the chase but might miss out in the playing XI in this match. Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Kieron Pollard fell cheaply but we expect them to score big runs in this match.

Mumbai pace duo of Trent Boult and Adam Milne rattled the CSK to 24/4 (literally 24/5) at the end of powerplay. Jasprit Bumrah picked up a couple of wickets but was a little expensive by his standards. Rahul Chahar was economical with the ball with figures of 4-0-22-0. Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard went for 42 runs in their combined 4 overs.  

Top players to bet on:

Suryakumar Yadav – SKY is a superb player of spin bowling and he will play a huge role against the likes of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy in this match. We expect him to make a big score to lead their batting efforts.

Adam Milne – Milne was very impressive in his first match with bowling figures of 4-0-21-2 and claimed the wickets of Moen Ali and MS Dhoni in the power play. His extra pace with the new ball might trouble the batters early on.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (wk), Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma (C), Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

KKR openers Shubman Gill (48 runs) and Venkatesh Iyer (41 runs) looked very fluent with the bat as they chased down the target of 92 runs in just 10 overs. Andre Russell, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Rahul Tripathi, and Nitish Rana pose a serious middle order batting combination for their team.

Varun Chakravarty and Andre Russell picked up 3 wickets each in the last game as they bowled out the opposition for 92 runs. Lockie Ferguson (4-0-24-2), Sunil Narine (4-0-20-0), and Prasidh Krishna (4-0-24-1) too bowled with good rhythm and never allowed any breathing space for the opposition batters.

Top players to bet on:

Shubman Gill – Gill looked in exquisite form for his 48 runs off 34 balls with his scintillating stroke play. He is a class batsmen who can score big runs once he gets into rhythm.

Varun Chakravarthy – Varun showcased is variations and claimed figures of 4-0-13-3 with the RCB batters failing to pick his deliveries. He will be a serious threat on these tracks aiding spin with the variations he possess.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi will have temperatures nearing 40s with humid conditions during the evening. Dew might come in the second innings of the match.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi will have a slightly greenish track with spongy tennis bounce for the pacers. The ball might seam and swing around slightly till it loses its shine. Spinners might enjoy the tacky bounce on this track. We expect the average scores to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

The early moisture on the pitch might assist the bowlers and both teams will look to take advantage of it by bowling first. Dew might trouble the bowlers to grip the ball in second innings.

KKR had their perfect match last night against RCB with their bowlers performing well as a unit and openers blowing away the target in chase. They have solid 5 bowlers who can trouble batters consistently with a couple of all-rounders. MI has one of the strongest squads in the tournament with good balance in batting and bowling departments. They lack a potent fifth bowler and if Hardik bowls the issue might be put to rest. We expect KKR to win this match as they have momentum on their side.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS will win the match
