Mumbai Indians are playing at a very high level in this year’s IPL. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders truly need to start scoring points to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Mumbai Indians pick up from where they left off a year ago. They sit second on the IPL 2020 points table at the moment. With the form MI is showing right now, it will be difficult to remove them from the top two spots. Kolkata Knight Riders, fourth position, are fighting to keep their playoff chances alive. The total pounding they got on from AB de Villiers specifically and Royal Challengers Bangalore wouldn’t have helped their certainty or their run-rate, and with the gigantic MI batting to look on the fair-sized Abu Dhabi ground, things will, in reality, be troublesome.

Mumbai Indians are beneath Delhi Capitals, as DC thrashed everybody but lost to Mumbai. MI appears to have checked all the crates – from the batting to bowling and even the fielding.

Two or three MI batsmen always come great together. Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Kieron Pollard, have been major pieces in MI’s success.

KKR spinner Sunil Narine is still doubtful to face MI

The bowling has been made to look great by the batting, however, no discussing that the quick bowling assault of Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, and James Pattinson is straight up there. KKR has been clearing a path with such a large number of changes in its blend. The one beneficial thing they did was to eliminate Sunil Narine from the top-order batting. Afterward, the West Indian was called out for a suspect action.

Tom Banton has come in, Eoin Morgan is currently at No. 4. The sheer turmoil was there for anyone to view when they confronted RCB. The bowlers have been flimsy, notwithstanding Varun Chakravarthy. Pat Cummins has attempted manfully, however, any assault would have endured in the event that they had confronted De Villiers in his shape.

With everything taken into account, Mumbai Indians are the favourites and KKR must play their best cricket to beat the 4-time IPL champions.
