KKR after a win in the last game would like to continue the winning momentum but in this game they are against formidable MI against whom their record isn’t something to be looked at as it stands at 6-21 in MI’s favour. But KKR have the momentum and the form with them but Andre Russell needs to play his matchups a little carefully now. KKR’s top order has been their problem from the previous seasons but after the last game they can bank on their powerful middle order to in them games. Whereas MI’s batting lineup is strong at both fronts whether be the top order or the middle order. Rohit Sharma has scored 900 odd runs against KKR, no other batsman has done that against any opposition so KKR have a task at hand to dismiss Rohit Sharma early. MI lost their first game against RCB but they are slow starters and they have not won their season opener from way back 2012 and they managed to win 5 titles in between that period so that stat is looking good for MI.
KKR’s probable XI: Shubman Gill,Nitish Rana,Rahul Tripathi,Eoin Morgan,Dinesh Karthik,Andre Russell,Sakin al Hasan,Pat Cummins,Harbhajan Singh,Prasidh Krishna,Varun Chakravarthy
MI’s probable XI: Rohit Sharma,Quinton de Cock/Chris Lynn,Surya Kumar Yadav,Ishan Kishan,Hardik Pandya,Kieron Pollard,Krunal Pandya,Rahul Chahar,Marco Jensen,Trent Boult,Jasprit Bumrah
