Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Today Dream 11 Prediction Preview:
The clash between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders would be for the second time on Monday. As the top two teams have almost confirmed their berths for playoffs, the race for third and fourth positions is going on still.
With Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans occupying first and second berth, the teams like Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings are eager to grab the remaining two spots.
To an extent, Royals’ berth is seemingly almost finalized in the top 3, the competition for the fourth is in full-swing. Mumbai and Kolkata, though, are going to play without any hopes for playoffs, the spirit of winning the game is likely to be unchanged.
The MI showcased a winning performance in its previous match by defeating Gujarat. It was Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan the top performers who went against Gujarat bowlers in an attacking style.
In the middle-order, Tim David’s contribution helped Mumbai to cross the 170-mark a point of reconsideration for the opponents in the coming matches in terms of scoring high runs. Similarly, Daniel Sams and Murugan Ashwin are continuing their good pace, but the Bumrah’s magic pace is yet to take its shape.
Meanwhile, Riders are expected to show some good performance. Though the chances to reach top 4 are almost dead, the blue and golden brigade will try to shine in order to upkeep its past glory.
The top-order’s inconsistency remains as a matter of a concern. Specifically, the issue of opening batting pair is still at an unsettling stage which makes KKR’s opponents to dominate since the beginning, in every match. Pat Cummins’ comeback can really help the team but his return to the squad still remains skeptical.
Besides, the bowlers, Tim Southee and Sunil Narine, are proving to be the wicket-takers at right time. With this scenario, the match 56 could be an interesting factor for the two teams, settled at lower-ranks of the table, how they continue to strive to show their winning legacy.
