IPL: Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Predictions

Interested in Today’s IPL predictions for the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians

Well, this article will give you exactly that.

The 5-time champion Mumbai Indians will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the 14th match of IPL 2022.

The match will be telecast live on Star Sports Network and Disney+hotstar.

Kolkata Knight Riders have registered 2 wins out of the 3 games they have played so far this season.

In their previous match, KKR managed to beat Punjab Kings convincingly.

They bowled out Punjab Kings for only 138 runs which proved an easy target for the KKR batters.

Due to a very destructive knock from Andre Russell, Kolkata chased down the target within the first 15 overs.

The strong West Indian all-rounder thrashed 70 runs off only 31 balls including 2 fours and 8 gigantic sixes.

Mumbai Indians is the most successful team in the history of IPL but it has been a bad start for them this year as they have lost both of their 1st two matches.

In their previous game against Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians lost by 23 runs as they managed to score only 170-8 while chasing a target of 194 runs.

Ishan Kishan has scored half-centuries in both games and he is the one who is supporting their batting lineup in the absence of Suryakumar Yadav.

Total Matches played: 29

Mumbai Indians  won: 22

Kolkata Knight Riders won: 7

MI Probable Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Tim David, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills, Basil Thampi

KKR Probable Playing 11

Star bowler of the match

Umesh Yadav played only 2 games in the last two seasons but he has been exceptional with the ball this year.

He is currently the leading wicket-taker of the season with 8 wickets in 3 games and he is expected to shine once again with the bowl for his side.

Star batsman of the match

Suryakumar Yadav didn’t play the first two games due to some fitness issues.

Now he is available for the third match and he will be the star performer in this match.

Star Wicketkeeper of the match

Ishan Kishan has been in excellent form in the first two games for Mumbai Indians.

He has smashed two half-centuries so far in the tournament and he is also super quick behind the stumps.

Star All-rounder of the match

Andre Russell smashed a quickfire 70 in the last game and he is looking in great touch with both bat and ball.

So, Russell will be the star all-rounder of the match.

Who will win?

Kolkata Knight Riders have a brilliant and in-form batting lineup but their batting hasn’t performed much.

They will rely a lot on their bowlers which can hurt them against a quality batting side.

Mumbai Indians have lost two games but their performance wasn’t too bad.

They are lacking a good spinner. The batting issues will be resolved with the return of Suryakumar Yadav.

Hence, we predict that Mumbai Indians will win this match against Kolkata Knight Riders.
