- Kolkata Knight Riders has been in a poor form since the last few matches though they started the season in a better manner. However, Mumbai Indians is already there with 12 points in hand and need to win just 1 more match to qualify for the play-offs. This clearly indicates that which team is stronger in this season.
- Though this match is in the home ground of Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma has a lovely connection with Eden Gardens and enjoys batting there. Therefore, this can be a threat for the hosts despite their home ground advantage.
- It is a high-scoring pitch and the audience should expect some beautiful sixes and fours from the power-hitters of both the sides.
- Kolkata Knight Riders can only win this match if their bowlers perform great. Because, even if they score big, Mumbai Indians can easily do that too with their power-hitters.
Apart from Russell, not many have performed from KKR. However, for Mumbai, it seems like a dream season when everyone is contributing. We predict Mumbai to take this home.
