IPL Live Cricket Streaming - Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians & Match Prediction
Today’s live cricket streaming action is Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians and you can catch it all, in the UK, on the SkyGo app and in India on Hotstar.
Our IPL match analyst Mayukh Bhattacharya takes a look at the two teams for today’s encounter :
“The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be looking for revenge as they take on the Mumbai Indians (MI) for the second time in three days. Having only won five out of the 22 encounters between the two sides, history is very much against KKR as MI look to keep their campaign alive.”
He continues: “While KKR need to win three out of their four matches to seal a playoffs berth, MI need to win all four. There is no doubt about the fact that the pressure will be on Rohit Sharma and his team, given the fact that they are the defending champions.
Head to Head
“The previous encounter between these two sides saw a fine all-round display from Hardik Pandya as he reminded the viewers about his value to any team. This season has also seen the rise of Suryakumar Yadav, who has thrived as an opener for Mumbai and is one run shy of 400 runs in the season. The ease with which he has played both spin and pace has given Rohit a chance to bat lower down the order and provide more stability to the innings.
With history and momentum in their favour, the Mumbai Indians will come hard at the Knight Riders. Dinesh Karthik is not known to be one who backs away from a fight. He has backed his players to come good and it is high time that someone like a Johnson repays that faith with some hostile fast bowling!”
A win for Mumbai Indians – they need to win all four remaining matches to stay in the tournament.
