KKR v MI | Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders Match Center Live
[lcw-fixtures upcoming=1 live= 0 completed = 0]
Kolkata Knight Rider will start their journey today but Mumbai Indians have already played a match in which they were lost. MI lost their first match against CSK that was a close match but Chennai Super King win the match by 5 wickets.
Who will be the big hitters today?
Andre Russell versus Kieron Pollard. Eoin Morgan versus Hardik Pandya. Add Dinesh Karthik, Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, and Sunil Narine to this mixture. It’s safe to say that we could look forward to a six-party festival. The bowlers on both sides have cut out their tasks. Which team do you think will score a maximum of six goals in this game?
While MI lost their first game of the tournament, that could just be a slip up. The quality of the players possessed by the four-time master is enviable. KKR, on the other hand, has strengthened its roster and hired Morgan, Tom Banton and Pat Cummins. There’s enough quality both sides have to offer and here are our top picks on the list of players to watch out for.
He has the highest IPL hit rate (186.41) for a batsman and clears the fence pretty often. He was KKR’s leading run-getter in the 2019 IPL and has beaten up to 52 sixes in 14 games. He will look forward to an encore. KKR will be happy when he gets into the groove from the first game of 2020.
Quinton de Kock
While he failed to score fifty points in MI’s opening game, Quinton de Kock’s airy 33 was a sign that the batting wicketkeeper-batsman is in good shape. The left-hander isn’t afraid to play his shots and with MI aiming for a win, de Kock’s solid presence at the top is vital.
Not that he can’t make it big, but Shubman Gill, who loves to watch bat in hand, has a punch approach that is characterized by style and elegance. The youngster will likely open his eyelashes for KKR and when he gets going this will create a solid platform for the big hitters who will be part of KKR’s eyelash unit.
Speed, skill, accuracy, adaptability and experience – one of the best pacemakers, Pat Cummins is expected to lead the KKR bowling unit this season. While the UAE tracks may not offer the pace that the Australian tracks offer, in the past Cummins has always shown a willingness to come up with ways to find wickets on the scalp. If he fires, KKR becomes an even more dangerous endeavor for the opposition.
The great West Indian was hardly ever disturbed by the distance to the border ropes. While eliminated in the first game against CSK for 18, Pollard will make one more point in the MI colors as the team tries to seal their first win at IPL 2020.
