Cricket Prediction: Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Live Cricket Streaming MI v KKR 2nd Qualifier Match IPL T20 Preview, Score, Schedule, Prediction - Indian Premier League 2017
Cricket Prediction for Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders - The titans will face each other for the last time in this year’s IPL T20 tournament. Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders have been playing very well in the tournament and it is certain that this match is going to be epic. The MI lost their last match against RPS and as a result, they will have to face-off with KKR. The Mumbai Indians have many players that are extremely talented & have adequate experience on the field like, Jasprit Bumrah, Nitish Rana, Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons. The blue skipper Rohit Sharma will come prepared for this match as it is their last chance to go to the finals and the opposing team is also in a good form. Rohit will be concerned about some players like Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn & Umesh Yadav, as these players are more than capable of turning the tables around in no second. The Kolkata Knight Riders will also spend extra time in the nets in order to compete with a team like Mumbai Indians who were in the #1 position of the IPL T20 2017. Gautam Gambhir was already much tensed in his previous match, his anxiety can be seen in his decisions as he sent Chris Lynn in the opening and not himself. But, if Gautam wants to win this match he will have to relax and not get too much anxious. The KKR bowling attack will target Lendl Simmons, Parthiv Patel & Rohit Sharma as all of these players are in their peak form and each of them can score 100+ runs in no time. This match will be held on a bowling oriented pitch of M. Chinnaswamy stadium situated in Bangalore, so both the teams will rely more on their bowlers than their batsmen. Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah & Michelle McClenaghan would have to take early wickets & keep the run rate in control as KKR has loads of batsmen who can sweep away the bowlers of MI. Even though KKR has Umesh Yadav, Trent Boult & Nathan Coulter-Nile, they will have to perform astonishingly well to take some important wickets of Mumbai Indians.
Can Rohit Defeat Them Again?
Last time when these two teams fought each other, MI won. Therefore, Rohit might be looking at the previous match to look for KKR’s weaknesses. In that match, Ambati Rayudu had played an innings of 62 runs in 37 balls, which consisted of 6 fours and 3 sixes. Saurabh Tiwary had also performed well by scoring 52 runs. The bowling is also amazing with McClenaghan, who has already taken 19 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah aids him with 15 wickets in his pockets. Overall, MI is looking balanced and strong.
Why Is Gambhir’s Confidence Is High?
Gautam Gambhir must be relieved with the win in the last match. He is now full of confidence as he has a great balance of bowling and batting. The skipper himself has scored 486 runs in this tournament and is supported by Manish Pandey who has also scored 396 runs. The bowlers of KKR have always been fearsome and have the wonderful ability of restricting run rate along with taking wickets. Chris Woakes has taken 17 wickets so far and he is looking dangerous with Umesh Yadav who can demolish the opposition’s batting as he has also taken 16 wickets in the IPL 2017.

Prediction of Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders:
This match is the second most important match of the whole Vivo IPL T20 2017 after the Finale. Both the teams will put everything they have got in this match, as it will be the last match for one of them in the tournament. Mumbai Indians have lost their last match so the confidence level of many young players might not be high and this can cause many problems in the dressing room of the team. KKR at the other end did win their last match but it was because of luck not performance. Therefore, it is obvious that both the teams will suffer from mental tension during the match but the Mumbai Indians will have a higher chance of winning against Kolkata Knight Riders on M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The reason is that the bowlers of Mumbai Indians have performed exceptionally well when compared to the bowling unit of Kolkata Knight Riders. Nevertheless, the men in purple can massively increase their chances if Sunil Narine is able to push the score from the start by using the golden 6 overs and Coulter Nathan-Nile takes the important wickets of Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard & Parthiv Patel when needed
