Pitch Report: The match between MI and KKR will be played at Abu Dhabi. In the 2nd match of the Phase 2, it was observed from the captains that it was bit hard to score runs in the 1st innings, and as the game progressed, the dew set in, and the batters can take full advantage and score runs. Here, the par score will be 140, for both the teams to have a good competition.
Brief score of the last result at the venue: Kolkata Knight Riders 94/1 won by 9 wickets against Royal Challengers Bangalore 93/10 in Match 31 of Indian Premier League 2021.
The 6 players from MI, and 5 players from KKR are chosen in the Dream11 prediction. The wicket-keeper Quinton De Kock can be the captain pick for your team due to his consistent performances in the T20 format. While, vice-captain can be Varun Chakravarthy who has been the best spinner for the team in this season. While, differential pick can be Venkatesh Iyer to have an edge over the other fantasy players.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Quinton De Kock
BATSMEN: Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, Shubman Gill
ALL-ROUNDERS: Andre Russell, Venkatesh Iyer
BOWLERS: Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, Varun Chakravarthy, Lockie Ferguson
The Kolkata Knight Riders are expected to win this match due to the impressive performance of the team in their first fixture of the Phase 2. The team looked confident in both the departments, and would be in better space. While, Mumbai Indians will be little disheartened by the loss in the last game, but have the experienced players who can make a fine comeback.
The Mumbai Indians team has been the most successful side in the IPL history with 5 wins. They always have lost their 1st league match and then went on to win the trophy. In the last league match, they lost to Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs, in the absence of their top players like Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya. The top picks from the MI team will be Quinton De Kock and Trent Boult.
Quinton De Kock is a gun player, but hasn’t been upto the mark in this season and hasn’t put one splendid innings yet. He will wish that he gets his form back, just when the team needs it the most. QDK’s help at the scoreboard is very crucial, as he can start attacking and keep the runs coming. In 7 matches, he has scored 172 runs and would look to improve his performance.
|Quinton De Kock||7||172||28.66|
A terrific bowler and a quick wicket taker, Boult is a must pick in the Mumbai Indians team’s bowling department, he takes wicket in the powerplay and is a breakthrough bowler for his team. Boult was pretty good in the last game against CSK and picked 2 wickets. In 8 matches in 2021 season, he has scalped 10 wickets and has been successful with the new as well as old ball.
Captain: Rohit Sharma
Wicket-keeper: Quinton De Kock
Possible Top Four: Rohit Sharma, Quinton De Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan
Opening Bowlers: Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
Overseas Players:Quinton de Kock, Trent Boult, Adam Milne, Kieron Pollard
MI Playing 11 (likely)
The Kolkata Knight Riders will look to continue their fine momentum they have generated with the performance in the last league match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The bowlers, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, and Andre Russell were impressive to contain and dismiss the opposition batters. While, the openers Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer performed quite well to chase down the target in 10 overs.
Varun has been a solid find in the KKR team, he has been picking up wickets in regular intervals. He has been extraordinary with his performance in T20s, and he will be a key player for KKR moving forward and while climbing up in the table. In the last league match, he scalped 3 wickets and now has 10 wickets to his name in the IPL 2021 season.
Dre Russ is a valuable pick, as he tends to bowl well, and is a magnificent striker of the ball. Russell’s ability in both the department, makes him a top pick candidate, where he can grab points in both the places by taking wickets and scoring well, what he does the best. In the last league match, he picked 3 wickets and will be upbeat ahead of this fixture.
Captain: Eoin Morgan
Wicket-keeper: Dinesh Karthik
Possible Top Four: Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi
