Winner of Mumbai Indians Vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match No 7
Question in detailMumbai Indians Vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Match No. 7: Heading into their second game, Mumbai Indians will seek reversal of fortunes. Ineffectual batting, desperately dud bowing, a couple of drop catches at crucial moments together caused Mumbai Indians a defeat in their first game. They amassed 184/8 staggering till the bitter end. Hardik Pandya got all the credit hitting 30 runs in the last over of the innings. Pandya's theatrical four sixes and a four in the final over were enough to raise the entertainment quotient. But, it couldn't lead his team to the coveted victory. On the back of Pandya's 15-ball 35, MI went way beyond the projected target (184). But, Rahane-Smith's hailstorm proved it negligible.
Mumbai Indians had no clear-cut plan against Smith, who after Rahane's dismissal single-handedly paved his team's way to the first win. They read the pitch wrong and went with a four-pace attack leaving the spin department bare. If Mumbai wants to become the winner of MI Vs KKR match, they will have to come with a new plan that works wonder.
Jos Buttler and Partiv Patel are doing well as openers. Nitesh Rana and Kieron Pollard are handy at their respective downs. What's really a matter of concern for MI is Rohit Sharma's contribution with bat. Other than this, they need to churn about their bowling combination in Mumbai Indians Vs Kolkata Knight Riders match, scheduled to be played on April 9 at Wankhede Stadium.
Kolkata Knight Riders, arguably one of IPL's most consistent sides, might sweat over a few injured players. An injury to Umesh Yadav's lower-back has set him apart from IPL's 10th season, at least for first two weeks. Another big name that KKR would miss is their flamboyant all-rounder Andre Russell. Knight Riders will have to win without the likes of their pace spearhead Umesh Yadav and key all-rounder Andre Russell. Will they become the winner of MI Vs KKR match? Let's wait and watch.
