Preview

Mumbai Indians (MI) will be in a must-win situation when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 51st match of the IPL 2024. The good thing for them is that the match is set to take place at Wankehede Stadium in Mumbai. There is another positive for the home side - their head-to-head record. The five-time champions have dominated the two-time champions in the faceoffs. Despite that, MI would not fancy their chances to beat KKR in the upcoming match.

MI had a lot of contributors with the bat in the first few matches in the league. However, in the last five games, none of their batters have been consistent, barring Tilak Varma and Nehal Wadhera to a certain extent. If that is not enough, their bowling is highly dependent on Jasprit Bumrah. The opponents realize he is the threat, play him out, and target other bowlers to score runs. At Wankhede Stadium, the home side needs to give their best performance to stay alive in the tournament.

On the other hand, the only better aspect of KKR has been their batting. At the top, they have a reliant pair like Sunil Narine and Phil Salt. Lower down the order, they have great finishers like Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, and Rinku Singh. In the bowling department, Narine has been the decisive factor in their success. Given the strength and performances of both sides, KKR would start as favorites. But the head-to-head record nearly evens out the advantage.

Pitch Report

The match between MI and KKR is set to take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. As usual, the venue has been good for batting. Bowlers have more difficulties due to the lack of swing early in the innings. Spinners do get some turn, but the shorter boundaries mean a nightmare. Batters need to score as many runs as possible, as no target seems difficult. Dew might not be a huge factor.

Sunil Narine KKR | ALL

Sunil Narine has been in phenomenal form as a player. He has won matches for KKR both as a batter and as a bowler. The West Indian has improved his fielding as well. It wouldn't be wrong to regard Narine to be at the peak of his career in the league.

Suryakumar Yadav MI | BAT

Suryakumar Yadav has had a mixed bag in the league so far. The pattern has been such that for every good match, he has had a bad match. Considering that he did not have a good game against LSG, Yadav can score big against KKR at home.

Philip Salt KKR | WK

Philip Salt has been one of the best players in the league so far. More often than not, he has given fiery starts to the side. The England batter has been good even as a wicketkeeper. When on song, he can singlehandedly win matches for KKR.

Avoid Having These Players In Your Fantasy Sports Team

Mohammad Nabi

MI | ALL

Mohammad Nabi has been underused by MI so far. As a batter, he comes way too low down the order, at number 8. As a bowler, he does not even complete his quota of overs. Neither is he a wicket-taker with the ball. It is better to avoid the experienced player in the fantasy team.

Venkatesh Iyer

KKR | ALL

Venkatesh Iyer has not been at his best with the bat this season. Despite the ability to bowl, he has not gotten an opportunity to bowl. Hence, the fantasy team might not get benefit by him being on the side. It is better to avoid him.
