IPL 2021: KKR vs MI match preview and predicted playing XI

IPL 2021 has already been filled with a couple of close games, it’ll definitely get more and more exciting as time progresses. The 5th match of the IPL 2021 might witness another one of the same kind on Tuesday. Kolkata Knight Riders filled with a lot of confidence will take on 5-time champions Mumbai Indians who did lose their first game against RCB.

Can Mumbai Indian come back after the loss in the inaugural game?

The 5-time champions Mumbai Indians have a habit of losing the openers in the IPL , over the years. Whenever they’ve won the trophy, they’ve lost a couple of games in the start. Nonetheless, they’ll try their best against their next rival KKR who won their last game. MI didn’t massively go wrong at a specific department in their first game. It was just a middle-order collapse that laid them down. The debutants in Chris Lynn and Marco Jansen had a decent game the other day. Chris Lynn looked really good with a positive intent up the order. Jansen on the other hand bowled brilliantly in the death overs. However, Chris Lynn might miss the game against KKR as Quinton De Kock might replace him as he has completed his quarantine.

Will Eoin Morgan’s KKR break their losing streak against MI?

Yes, you read it right. KKR’s performance against MI has been awful having lost 9 of their last 10 games against them. But, KKR will be coming to this game having won a close game against SRH. KKR batsmen showed an intentful performance in that game with Tripathi being the aggressor accompanied by a well-made 80 by Nitish Rana. It was well-finished by Dinesh Karthik which is a big positive for the team. The result of the addition of Shakib-al-Hasan was obtained on his very first ball where he got the wicket. He proved his worth and will be a massive factor against MI who are filled with right-hand batsmen. Pat Cummins looked good in the first game and might trouble MI in the Power play.
