Mumbai Indians vs. Kolkata Knight Riders: Check Out The IPL 2021 Match Prediction

The 5-times champion of the Indian Premier League title, Mumbai Indians, had a bit of a setback in their start to the 2021 edition of this tournament. They lost the match against RCB by two wickets. However, the team is all set with their dedicated practice session results to face off KKR in the second leg of this tournament on 23rd September. 

In the last few meetings of these teams, MI never failed to defeat the Knights. The odds go in favor of Mumbai Indians. However, KKR, led by Morgan, has won their first match of IPL 2021 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and is ready to defy the odds in this match.

Probable Best Batsman For The Match

Rohit Sharma – Mumbai Indians 

Rohit Sharma, captain of Mumbai Indians, has a record of exceptional performances against KKR. The opening batsman is in the best form after the stunning cricket performance in the last series against Sri Lanka and England. He has six half-centuries and an average strike rate of 31.33, with the highest run of 43 against KKR itself. He is a primary source of stress for the Knights in the upcoming game. 

Probable Best Bowler For The Match

Andre Russel – Kolkata Knight Riders 

Andre Russel has shown a magnificent bowling performance in the last MI vs. KKR IPL match, where he astonished the audience with five wickets for 15 runs in the entire match. Russel is a fast bowler with a great economy rate and speed in his bowling. He can become a nightmare for MI in this upcoming match.
