Kolkata Knight Riders to beat Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians a 80% chance to win this match 

Kolkata Knight Riders a 20% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Mumbai Indians 

Suryakumar Yadav 

Suryakumar Yadav has hit a couple of fifties in the season but he hasn’t been at his best so far. However, he has a great record at the Wankhede Stadium and a Surya special knock is very much a possibility on the batting paradise.

Tilak Varma 

Tilak Varma has also looked in decent touch at times but failed to score big. However, he still has 343 runs to his name, including three fifties.

Jasprit Bumrah 

Jasprit Bumrah has been outstanding for MI. He is the only player who can hold his head high despite the team’s bizarre outing in IPL 2024. Bumrah is the leading wicket-taker this season, with 14 wickets to his name.

Gerald Coetzee 

Gerald Coetzee has also picked crucial wickets, even though he has been a tad expensive with an economy of over 10 runs per over. However, we can’t be too harsh on him considering that the season has been a nightmare for bowlers.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Nuwan Tushara, Naman Dhir, Shams Mulani, Kumar Kartikeya, Dewald Brevis 

Nuwan Tushara should be used as an impact player as MI desperately need a good bowler to back Bumrah and Coetzee. However, If they are chasing, Dewald Brevis can be a great option.

Kolkata Knight Riders 

Phil Salt 

Phil Salt has been ruthless at the top. He scored 68 in 33 balls against the Delhi Capitals. Overall, he has scored 392 runs at an average of 49 and a strike rate of 180, with 22 sixes – Remarkable.

Sunil Narine 

Sunil Narine has also played a significant role in KKR’s juggernaut this season. Narine at the top has been unstoppable, scoring 372 runs, including two fifties and a century. He has also taken 11 wickets at an economy of 6.86.

Andre Russell 

Andre Russell is another match winner in the KKR team. Russell hasn’t got much opportunities as the top order has done well, however, every time he came out to bat, he ensured he does not miss out on hammering the opposition. Russell has scored 179 runs in 6 innings he has batted in addition to the nine wickets he picked in the tournament.

Harshit Rana 

Harshit Rana has been a great find for KKR. With 11 wickets in seven innings, he has enjoyed a stunning season for KKR.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Angkrish Raghuwanshi, Suyash Sharma, Manish Pandey, Ankul Roy 

Angkrish Raghuvanshi has been used as an impact player by KKR throughout the season and he should be the first choice impact player for KKR, especially given the fact that the team has multiple all-round options who can chip in if the team needs an extra bowler.

Team Forms: 

MI Team Form: 

MI have been very ordinary this season as neither the batters nor bowlers have been able to make an impact. They have won just three out of the 10 games so far in IPL 2024.

KKR Team Form: 

KKR have been outstanding. They have been ruthless and very tough to beat. They have six wins in nine matches so far.
