Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will come face to face in the 14th match of IPL 2022 on Wednesday. KKR have managed to win 2 out of 3 matches in the tournament, but this match is likely to be their toughest battle. They have won only 7 out of their 29 games against MI and would be looking to improve their record. Australian Test captain Pat Cummins, who joined the KKR camp last week, would be available for selection and it would be interesting to see how the team manages to get him in the playing 11.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, are yet to win a game in the tournament. They lost their previous match against Rajasthan Royals by 23 runs after MI’s batters failed to chase down the target of 194 runs. Suryakumar Yadav might be included in the playing 11 in this game and that might strengthen their middle-order.
Under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer, the team would like to maintain the winning streak in this match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians (KKR vs MI). In the last match, thanks to the swashbuckling innings of 75 runs by Andre Russell, the team had achieved a thrilling victory against Punjab. But, the rest of the batsmen had missed somewhere in playing their role. Thats why the batsmen will have to step up against Mumbai. Venkatesh Iyer and Rahane, who flopped in the last match, will have to give a good start to the team.
Captain Shreyas Iyer is making a great start but, missing out on playing a big innings, he will be expected to score a wonderful innings with the bat. In all the three matches so far, Umesh Yadav has bowled excellently with both the new and the old ball. But, the rest of his bowlers will also have to help. Apart from this, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakraborty will also play a special role with bowling. KKR has a team equipped with hitting batsmen and excellent bowlers. But, there is bound to be a fierce competition between the two teams.
In this match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians (KKR vs MI), Rohit Sharma will try his best to open the account. But, for this he will have to go with the best playing XI. Each player will have to give his 100 percent to win. In his first two matches, Hitman landed with the same playing XI. But, a change is certain in the playing XI of this match to be played against KKR. Because the team is already under circumcision of hat-trick defeat.
Suryakumar Yadav may return in place of Anmolpreet Singh. So far both Surya has been out of the match. His entry in the team will strengthen the middle order and will also play the role of an experienced batsman. At the same time, Fabien Allen can be given a chance in the third match instead of Danielle Sams. In the last match against Rajasthan, Murugan Ashwin and Basil Thampi proved to be very weak links for the team. In such a situation, if any way to open the account with victory, then both these players will have to bowl with the right line-length.
This match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians (KKR vs MI) to be held on 6 April is going to be very exciting. But, the weather will also play an important role in this match. You will also be very excited to know about it. So let us tell you that the weather will be absolutely clear in this match. There will be sunshine in the sky. There is no chance of rain.
