MI vs KKR- Kolkata Knight Riders preview:
KKR put in a sensational bowling display in that game to bundle Punjab out for just 137 runs in the first innings. Umesh Yadav, once again, starred with the ball as he claimed four wickets for 23 runs in 4 overs. Tim Southee (2 for 36) also bowled well, while the likes of Narine and Russell picked one wicket each. Kolkata Knight Riders, in reply, chased down the score in 14.3 overs.
Shreyas Iyer played a valuable knock of 26 runs in 15 balls. However, it was Andre Russell, who stole the show with an outstanding knock of 70 runs in just 31 deliveries. KKR would be looking to continue the winning momentum.
Facing them are Mumbai Indians, who have made the worst possible start to their campaign. They have played two games and have lost both games. They are yet to open their account in the tournament.
MI vs KKR- Mumbai Indians preview:
In their last game against RR, Mumbai Indians conceded 193 runs in the first innings. Jasprit Bumrah returned with a sensational spell of 3 for 17 in 4 overs. However, the other bowlers failed to inspire any confidence. It will be interesting to see if they make any change in the bowling department.
In pursuit of that score, Mumbai fell 23 runs short of the target. Tilak Verma played a gem of a knock, scoring 61 runs in 33 balls, while Ishan Kishan also scored a half-century. Rohit Sharma, however, needs to take a lot of responsibility with the bat. Suryakumar Yadav is fit and is likely to play the next game which will give a lot of confidence to the Mumbai Indians.
