KKR Vs Mi Live Match Today:Mumbai Indians are unlikely to change much in their 11th match against KKR. However, Hardik Pandya is not fit yet, so he will not be a part of today’s match.
Mumbai Indians will face KKR in the IPL 14 match to be played on Thursday. The return of captain Rohit Sharma in Team Mumbai Indians is certain. However, due to Hardik Pandya being unfit, Mumbai Indians may have to give a chance to Sourav Tiwary in this match as well.
Despite losing to CSK, playing 11 for Mumbai Indians is unlikely to change much. However, the team management has already issued an update that Rohit Sharma is absolutely fit for the match against KKR. Rohit Sharma will not only take over the command of the team but will also take over the command of the opening with de Kock.
Five-time title winners Mumbai Indians are at the fourth position in the points table. They have played eight matches so far, winning four of them. Kolkata Knight Riders have won only three matches out of eight. They have close to six points and are at the sixth position in the points table. It will not be easy for KKR to beat Mumbai Indians as Mumbai has always been heavy on KKR in terms of numbers.
In the first phase of this league, if both the teams were face to face, then the victory was in the name of Mumbai. In the fifth match of the season, 5-time winners Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knights by 10 runs in a thrilling match to register their first win of the season. Mumbai had set a target of 153 flights to Kolkata. In reply, the team led by Eoin Morgan could only manage 142 runs and lost the match by 10 runs. KKR will now have a chance to avenge this defeat.
Rohit has been in good shape for quite some time and is expected to retain him to help the batsmen rectify the mistakes they made against Chennai. Chasing the 156th target against Chennai, apart from Saurabh Tiwary, none of the Mumbai batsmen could perform well.
Rohit will complete 1000 points against Kolkata after scoring 18 points. He will become the first player to score 1,000 IPL points against a team. At present, he has scored 982 points with an average of 49.10 and a hitting average of 133.06.
