Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2020: Match Prediction and KhelChamps Fantasy Cricket

We are halfway through the IPL season, and it gets exciting each day. Teams are giving their best in each battle to reach the top of the points table.

In the 32nd match of the IPL season, Mumbai Indians lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders in Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi. 

Mumbai Indians ranks 2nd on the points table, while Kolkata Knight Riders stand in the 4th position. By far, Mumbai Indians have given an incredible performance. The only team that has been their closest competitor is Delhi Capitals. On the other hand, KKR is trying its best to play consistently to be in the top five.   

Mumbai has been consistent with their team selection in all their matches. The key batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, including the Pandya Brothers, have played quite well. 

MI also has a strong team of bowlers like Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson that have been giving a noticeable performance.

On the other side, Kolkata has its ups and downs, but Dinesh Karthik is trying to give his team the best.

In their last match against RCB, Kolkata lost by 82 runs. Players like Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, and Rahul Tripathi tried to give their best, but it wasn’t enough against Bangalore’s strong bowling.

Kolkata has been a strong team in the season, but both the bowlers and batsmen have to give their best to this match against MI.

It will be exciting to watch whether KKR will be back with a bang, or Mumbai will take back their place on the points table from Delhi.
