Match Preview

The Kolkata Knight Riders will face the Mumbai Indians at the MCA Stadium in Pune in their next match on 6th April. Both of these teams have had a different start, with Kolkata Knight Riders winning two of their first three games and Mumbai Indians unable to register a point. In the three games thus far, the Shreyas Iyer-led team has been dominant in both the batting and bowling departments, and they will be reinforced by the return of Pat Cummins to the line-up.

Mumbai, on the other hand, has lost both of its matches this season and is desperate for a win in the forthcoming match. In terms of decision-making, not much has gone their way, and Basil Thampi’s lack of experience in the bowling setup hasn’t helped matters. Tim David is failed to score for the Mumbai Indians in the lucrative competition. The pros are that Ishan Kishan and Tilak Varma appear to be in great shape.
