KKR vs MI Match Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders will square up with Mumbai Indians in the 47th match of Indian Premier League on Sunday. Mumbai Indians after winning their last match against Chennai Super Kings have jumped to the second position in the table, while KKR, on the other hand, is still setting their combinations right with just three matches left in the tournament.
Skipper Rohit Sharma struck his first half-century of the tournament in the last match against Chennai Super Kings on Friday. With Quinton De Kock also in fine touch, Mumbai’s top order looks daunting. Hardik and Pollard have been relishing the opportunity to tonk sixes in the death overs. The bowling department is probably the best of all the teams. Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah are performing phenomenally with the ball, while Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya have also bowled brilliantly in the last match against CSK.
Kolkata Knight Riders:-
Kolkata Knight Riders have only won four matches out of eleven in the tournament and to be honest, West Indies all-rounder Andre Russel has been the foremost reason in all their wins. Top order batsmen have failed miserably in the tournament. Skipper Dinesh Karthik’s impeccable knock of 97 runs off 57 deliveries in the last game against Mumbai Indians perhaps came too late. While Kolkata Knight Riders are almost out of contention, they still have an outside chance to turn their fortunes around.
Given the match is going to be held at Eden Gardens, Chis Lynn and Andre Russell would be the biggest bets for KKR. Karthik’s 50-ball 97 runs knock also came at this ground.
