Match Preview

The match between KKR and MI will take place on May 9th in DY Patil Stadium. The MI, led by Rohit Sharma, have already been eliminated from the playoff race, with only four points from ten games, and even if they win all of their remaining games, they will only have 12 points. It is inadequate to get them close to the knockout stages, since RCB already has 12 points and three other clubs have 16 and 14 points. On the other side, the KKR under Shreyas Iyer were defeated by the Lucknow Super Giants on Saturday night, leaving them with just 8 points from 11 games. They have three matches remaining, with a maximum point total of 14, which cannot ensure even a fourth-place finish. In this battle, though, players from both sides may compete for glory. The players will be aiming for a few records, statistics, and milestones in the MI vs KKR encounter.
