The most successful IPL team, Mumbai Indians is having a difficult season so far with 2 losses in the first 2 matches but nothing can be certain with MI and they have a reputation of changing the momentum suddenly and going to the top.
KKR, on the other hand, is going well so far with 2 wins in 3 matches, they are at the 2nd spot on the points table. The KKR squad under the new skipper Shreyas Iyer is performing well and their star all-rounder Andre Russell regained his form in the last match against PBKS.
The pitch at MCA stadium offers a good surface for the batters. Pacers have been more successful here, as compared to the spinners. The par score is around 185.
The weather forecast predicts the presence of little clouds with temperature to not dip below 29°C.

Dream11 Captain - R. Sharma
Dream11 Vice Captain - V. Iyer
Ishan Kishan is in great form and showing the worth of every penny spent on him by the Mumbai Indians but the team isn’t able to capitalize to win the matches. In 2 matches, Kishan has smashed 135 runs at a strike rate of 148.35. He is currently the top selected player in this match with more than 95% selection so far.
Andre Russell was in his Russell Muscle mode in the last match against PBKS. Russell stepped in when the team was at 51-4 while chasing 139. Russell smashed 70 runs off just 31 deliveries to take KKR to the winning side. He also bowled 2 balls and took 1 wicket.
Bumrah regained his form in the last match, picking 3/17 in 4 overs but unfortunately, Mumbai lost the match. Bumrah’s form is crucial for the team for the upcoming matches and this performance will give him the required boost. He is the top picked bowler currently.
Umesh Yadav was picked by only one team in the mega auction and he has proved his worth now to all the other teams in this season. With 8 wickets in just 3 matches, Yadav is currently the top wicket taker of the tournament. He is now a must pick player for the KKR matches.
After a good start in the first match, Rohit flunked in the 2nd match by scoring just 10 runs. We are backing him as a dream11 must pick player for this match. He has scored 89 dream11 points in 2 matches.
Venkatesh Iyer was the hero of KKR in the 2nd leg of IPL 2021. He played so well that he got inducted into the national team. He is looking to find the right momentum currently and is struggling a bit but we are expecting him to score well in this match and he is a must pick player for his all rounder skills.
