After losing the previous battle, Mumbai Indians will be eying a comeback against Kolkata knight riders in today’s game. However, KKR will be looking to carry its momentum from the last match win against MI.

Mumbai Lost its previous match against RCB by 7 wickets. Sent to bat first Mumbai Indians made 158 in 20 overs. RCB chased it down with the help of MR. 360 and nail-biting contest had gone in favor of Bangalore.

Harshal Patel was the main highlight for RCB as he picked a fifer giving away only 1 run in the 20th over.

On the other hand, Kolkata is coming from a comfortable win against Hyderabad. Nitish Rana scored 80 runs out of just 54 balls bagging the man of the match award. Rana opened the batting for KKR, perhaps today KKR will stick to its plan, opening with Rana and Shubman Gill, while sending Rahul Tripathi at no.3

Chris Lynn might continue to Open for Mumbai

Chris Lynn opened the batting with Rohit in the previous match for Mumbai due to the unavailability of Quinton De cock. He was also the highest run-getter for MI with 49. However, he was responsible for running out Rohit in the same match who was looking in great form.

After the match, Lynn said hilariously that “Running out his captain was not ideal, and it could be mean his first match was. the last match Mumbai”.

Mumbai bought Lynn for 4 crores but the Australian player was on the bench the whole season last year. This is because de cock was playing really well. But de cock absence opened a way for the right-hander. On the basis of his previous match performance, it pretty sure MI will stick with him at least for this game.
