Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Head To Head Records Preview:
It is the battle between the season’s laggards. Nobody would have thought that two former IPL champions will be occupying the spots at the bottom of the table. But it has been such a strange IPL. Mumbai Indians with 2 wins from 10 games and Kolkata Knight Riders with 3 wins in 11 games will face off against each other. The DY Patil stadium in Navi Mumbai will play host to this game. Let us dive into MI vs KKR Head to Head 2022, MI vs KKR Head to Head Records, MI vs KKR Head to Head In IPL History, and more details.
Current Form: Mumbai Indians
The Mumbai Indians have had a season to forget so far. They are at the bottom of the pile in the ten-team tournament. The seeds for this performance go back to the performance in the auctions. Mumbai strangely remained passive in the mega auctions. They splurged heavily on three of the players. MI spent a whopping 15.25 crores INR on Ishan Kishan. They went on to spend INR 8 crores each on Jofra Archer and Tim David. It is here where MI missed a trick. Their squad bore an incomplete look even before the competition began.
To add to MI’s misery, their most expensive pick in the auction, Ishan Kishan failed to live up to his potential. MI made a mockery of a selection wherein they dropped Tim David after just two games. David’s player of the match performance against Gujarat further reinstated what a bad call it was to drop him. It has been that kind of a season for MI where nothing has gone right for them. They have notched a couple of wins but it might well be too little too late.
Current Form: Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR couldn’t have started the tournament on a more promising note. They won three games out of the first four. It appeared as if Shreyas Iyer-led KKR could do no wrong. But the early-season promise soon withered away. KKR went on to lose their next five games. It was a losing streak that was as bad as the opposition they are going to play next, the Mumbai Indians.
KKR put up a spirited performance against RR to snap their five-match losing run. The fans believed the team could still make a comeback. But it proved to be a false dawn. KKR went on to lose against LSG in the very next game. They not just lost but lost it quite badly. KKR was bundled out for 101 chasing a score of 176. It couldn’t get worse for a struggling side like KKR. They will now want to play for pride.
