The matches are coming thick and fast in the 2nd leg of the Indian Premier League 2021. Sunrisers Hyderabad have found themselves almost out of the playoffs race while all the other seven teams are fighting for the top 4 spot. Today will be a crucial clash between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders. Both the teams are desperate for a win and neither team can slip up even a bit as it will put their playoffs spot in jeopardy.

Four plus sixes in the match. Both teams’ No,4 batter to score 20 plus runs. On one side, Suryakumar Yadav will come. But from KKR, anyone from Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan or Nitish Rana can come. Mumbai to win the match

KKR fielded a batting heavy XI in the game against RCB and their primary bowlers were good enough on that day to restrict the RCB line up but Andre Russell and Prasidh Krishna have always been inconsistent and unreliable and they need a backup bowler for them to cover up a bad day and they have an unknown prospect in Venkatesh Iyer who showed what he can do with the bat against RCB.

IPL 2021: How can KKR beat the MI

KKR have to be at the top of their game if they are to beat the mighty Mumbai Indians. Shubman Gill showed beautiful range of shots against RCB but MI’s bowling attack is second to none in the competition. If KKR openers can repeat what they did against RCB, their middle order can really cash in towards the middle and later half of the innings.

KKR would also want their pacer Prasidh Krishna to give an early breakthrough with the new ball just like how he did against RCB. All in all, an intriguing contest is on cards.
