By the look of things, the race for the IPL title is likely to go right down to the wire. With no less than three teams in the running, the Mumbai Indians cannot afford any slip-ups over the coming weeks. KKR will be wary of this determined side when they lock horns in a few hours’ time.
One of the most intense cricket games you’d ever witness, Delhi Capitals were comfortably dispatched on the last matchday by this resilient MI squad. A close game it was, Mumbai edged out by a measly five wickets. Impressively, their players turned in a performance of the highest quality.
Openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock in inspired form, their victory was never in doubt. That said, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan have also weighed in with their own fair share of support. However, the trio of Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya are still yet to get into their stride.
Karthik will be drilling his batting unit ahead of this upcoming contest, as MI are known to be a deadly side. To stand any chances against this foe, a good start will work wonders – Tom Banton and Shubman Gill giving their side a head-start.
Of the two openers, Gill has been the most consistent, churning in impressive performances every matchday. Still out of form, Andre Russell remains the weak-link in this KKR squad. Pat Cummins is a fantastic bowler, and with good support, will perform exploits with the new ball.
The Mumbai Indians are a complete team, sporting wonderful bowlers and batsmen in their ranks. This factor, alone, tips the scale heavily in their favor. Expect a lop-sided game in Abu Dhabi with MI emerging victors.
