MI vs KKR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

An interesting battle is on the cards as Mumbai Indians take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 32nd match of The Indian Premier league.  The match will be played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium; Abu Dhabi and is scheduled to begin  at 6:00 PM local time. Find out the playing 11, follow our betting tips and place your bets at betway and bet365.

Post their loss to CSK in the opening game, Mumbai has been ruthless in their approach in the tournament. With 5 wins in 7 games, they comfortably sit at the helm of the points table, waiting for oppositions to challenge their supremacy in the league. Let me say this very clearly, Mumbai will be a hard nut to crack for any opposition. Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, all looks in prime touch. Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya have been magnificent in the limited opportunities they’ve got. In the bowling department, trio of Jasprit Bumrah, James Pattinson and Trent Boult have been the nemesis for the opposition along with Rahul Chahar who’s not let the batsmen get off their hooks in the middle overs. What more can u expect from a team? 
KKR, on the other hand have been good, but there is a definite scope of improvement in their team. Shubhman Gill is scoring runs consistently but as an opener KKR need him to play big knocks which hasn’t been the case with him. Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, all have some runs under their belt but lack consistency. Moreover, they’ll be sweating over the form of Andre Russell, who’s looked completely out of touch. There are issues in their bowling too with Cummins unable to get them early breakthroughs. The Indian pace battery has been equally disappointing. With no Sunil Narine, their bowling looks as sleek as it could be. They do have the skills to turn it around but will they be able to do that against a strong Mumbai team? Let’s wait and watch!

MI vs KKR Toss Prediction

Toss could go either way but the team winning the toss should bat first as chasing hasn’t been that easy on this slow wicket.

Weather Report

The weather at Abu Dhabi is expected to make the players sweat with temperatures touching 40 degree Celsius.

Pitch Condition

The pitch at Abu Dhabi looks a wicket that gets slower as the game progresses. Batting second will be challenging.

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai has been ruthless in the tournament. Will all their players performing, Rohit Sharma would not want tinker much with the winning combination. Mumbai is expected to play the same team.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma has been on fire in the tournament. He might have misses out in the last game; he’ll definitely come hard at KKR. 
  • Surya Kumar Yadav: Surya Kumar Yadav is a star player for Mumbai. He looked in ominous touch in the last game against Delhi and will be eager to continue his good run against KKR. 
  • Trent Boult: Trent Boult has been scintillating this season. KKR batsmen will find it hard to tackle the pace and swing of the Kiwi pacer. 

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians have been thrilling in the tournament with 5 wins in 7 games.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

KKR’s  plan to bring in Tom Banton in place of Sunil Narine didn’t worked in the last game but they’ll most probably stick with him, at least for the next 3-4 games. We don’t see Dinesh Karthik making too many changes in the playing XI. The only possible change we can expect is Lockie Ferguson making a cut into the team in place of Cummins.

KKR Key Players

  • Eoin Morgan: Eoin Morgan has played some brisk knocks in the tournament and a big knock from him is long due in IPL 2020. KKR need him to come good against Mumbai.
  • Dinesh Karthik: Dinesh Karthik played a delightful innings against Punjab. Though he misses out on the last game, he’ll back himself to score big against Mumbai.
  • Andre Russell: De Russ, has been disappointing in the tournament but you just need a match to get back to form. Friday just might be his day.

KKR Team Form

KKR were humiliated by RCB in their last game. Though they have 4 wins to show, they haven’t been at their very best yet.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Shubhman Gill, Tom Banton, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik (C/wk), Rahul Tripathi, Andre Russell, PatCummins/ Lockier Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthi, Prasidh Krishna, Kamlesh Nagarkoti

    Mumbai Indian looks lie a tough team to beat, but KKR is good too so I think it can go either way, there are 50-50 chances of either of the teams winning. Personally, I am rooting for Kolkata Knight Riders and I wish them all the very best!!

    Forever a fan of Mumbai Indians. With Rohit Sharma in the team. His experience with Indian pitches and the form that the team is in is definitely going to turn the things in their favour. Best of Luck MI
