MI vs KOL Today Match Prediction Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Who will win Today 16 October

MI vs KOL today match prediction: Mumbai Indians are one win away from regaining the 1st position in the points table and KOL are in desperate need for a victory as their journey have more similarities to last year’s campaign where they missed out on NRR. Some of the strategies from KOL have been hard to understand from a common man perspective and they have even managed to win 2 games with those strategies but it eventually backfired in their previous game against BLR where they lost by a big margin of 82 runs which also took a heavy toll on their NRR which is a very important thing in these kind of tournaments.

MI are invincible at the moment as they hardly have a chink in their bowling attack as well as in batting order. They are approaching the game in the right way and are reaping rewards for it. The approach of their openers have been the important aspect for them. The confidence with which they are exploiting the field restrictions is something that other team openers should take note of.

Strengths
Mumbai Indians (MI)
Their top order has been in supreme form off late. Though, Rohit Sharma has been inconsistent in this season, his intent is something that has helped Mumbai Indians to get off to a brisk start more often that not. Their pace bowling trio are bowling well although, James Pattinson had an off day against DC, the management might give another chance to James Pattinson who has bowled well to date before moving to Nathan Coulter-Nile
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)
Varun Chakravarthy has been mighty impressive in this season and has earned the trust of his management to be their sole spinner in the playing 11. They might want to bring in Sunil Narine for the all important clash which will boost their spin attack to a great deal.
Weaknesses
Mumbai Indians (MI)
The form of Hardik Pandya with the bat is their only concern as of now. He has failed to click in this season big time although it hasn’t affected MI in any way, they don’t want their power hitter in Hardik Pandya to be in this sort of form with the tournament approaching the bus iness end.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)


Their main man in Andre Russell has been a massive disappointment in this season so far with the bat. Their middle order has been letting them down time and again with the likes of Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan in terrible form at the moment. They might want to open with Rahul Tripathi which worked well for them.
