In the 14th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Mumbai Indians (MI) on Wednesday, April 6 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium at 7:30 PM IST. KKR have acquired the second spot with four points while MI are at the eighth position with a point yet to score.
Kolkata Knight Riders will be heading into this fixture on the back of an emphatic six-wicket victory against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Friday. Clinical performances with the ball from Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine and Tim Southee have been helping KKR to restrict the opponents. The team’s MVP, Andre Russell has been in a destructive mode, his performance in the previous game showcased his form in the ongoing IPL season. The Shreyas Iyer-led team will aim to clinch a victory on Wednesday and grab the top spot in the points table.
On the other end, the five-time IPL champions, Mumbai Indians are having an underwhelming season so far. Even after playing two games, they are yet to win a fixture. The IPL 2020 winners lack a quality death bowler who could work in cohesion with Jasprit Bumrah. In the absence of Suryakumar Yadav, the Rohit Sharma-led team is struggling to form partnerships in the middle overs along with finishing the innings. The Mumbai-based franchise will look to make some amends ahead of their game on Wednesday against the in-form KKR.
In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, MI have a major lead. The two teams have collided on 29 occasions, Mumbai won 22 games while Kolkata emerged victorious on seven instances.
In the last outing between the two teams, KKR won the game by seven wickets.
