In the 32nd match of 2020IPL, Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians will come up against Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. MI is appearing against KKR after a brilliant victory against the Delhi Capitals. Mumbai had won against KKR when the teams fought for the first team in 2020 IPL. The Mumbai Paltan has emerged victorious in their last four games and a win over Karthik-led KKR can help the reigning champions regain the top spot in the IPL 2020 points table.
MI is currently in the second position of the tables the Rohit-led side is having five wins and two defeats after playing eight games this season. The MI team is in tremendous form, the batting side led by skipper Rohit along with De Kock brings out good openings followed by Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. Pollard and Hardik Pandya makes blast from the mid-order. On the bowling front, Mumbai has remained lethal at death bowling with Trent Boult, James Pattinson, and Jasprit Bumrah scalping as many as 31 wickets combined this season.
KKR appears after their failure against RCB, now it’s necessary for KKR to make another victory to confirm their playoffs. It will be interesting to see whether Sunil Narine, who has been reported for suspect bowling action will make his return to the side or not. The KKR is confident with their young players. Russel hasn’t come up to his form yet and that troubles KKR a lot. Pat Cummins and Prasidh Krishan will lead the seam bowling for KKR, KKR can also gamble on Kuldeep Yadav who can lead the spin department with mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy.
Our Prediction: Mumbai Indians will be taking over KKR, continuing their swimming streak.
