Mumbai Indians are all set to take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in a mouth-watering contest at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. Both teams haven’t had the best of runs in the tournament so far and KKR are on the verge of joining MI as the team to have lost the chances of making to the playoffs of IPL 2022. Mumbai Indians have managed to win their last two games despite a disastrous start and they will certainly look to finish the tournament on a high.

On the other hand, the Kolkata Knight Riders started off the tournament brightly, but since then, it has been a downward spiral for them with six losses in the last seven games. With just four wins in 11 games, KKR do not have much time to reassess their plans and they will need to bring their A game out soon. Aaron Finch and Baba Indrajith’s combination at the top is not working and they are likely to bring in Ajinkya Rahane and Sam Billings to provide stability.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the Match

Suryakumar Yadav:

Suryakumar Yadav has been the best batter for the Mumbai Indians this season and he has been quite consistent as well. He was dismissed for just 13 in the previous game and he will be looking to make up for it with a big score. The right-hander has scored 303 runs in eight games for the Mumbai Indians this season and he will be key to the success of the franchise.

Probable best bowler of the Match

Murugan Ashwin:

Murugan Ashwin came back into the playing XI for the Mumbai Indians and immediately had an impact with the ball. The leg-spinner was the pick of the bowlers picking up 2/29 in his four overs in the last game and helped his side immensely to pull off a dramatic last over win. He will be riding high on confidence and would be raring to deliver another impressive spell.
