While Mumbai will be in the process of returning to the path of victory, KKR will be intent on starting with victory. There is no shortage of big hitters in both teams. This is the third IPL of Shubman Gill who specializes in the fun of hitting sixes around the field. On the other hand, ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma is the emperor of limited overs cricket and the battle between him and Shubman’s bat skills will be worth watching.
T20 cricket, however, is not limited to just bat or technique skills. Damakham’s role in this is important and in such a situation, it will be worth watching Hardik Pandya and Andre Russell. Pandya, who returned fit, has the power to face KKR’s most expensive player Pat Cummins along with Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav. At the same time, Russell is the most dangerous batsman in T20 cricket at this time.
Russell, who hit 52 sixes last season, criticized the team management for sending him down the batting order. This time he has been promised to be dropped at number three, which is enough to create fear in the opposition teams. KKR mentor David Hussey recently said, ‘If this helps us win the match, why not. If Russell comes in at number three and plays 60 balls, he can also score a double century. He can do anything.
KKR has the best captain in the limited overs of international cricket as Eoin Morgan who can advise Dinesh Karthik. On the other hand, Mumbai has an all-rounder like Nathan Culper Nile. Despite a good start in the opening match, the Mumbai team could only manage 162 runs for 9 wickets. In such a situation, instead of Saurabh Tiwari, he can remove Ishaan Kishan.
Jasprit Bumrah could not walk in the first match and he is not among those in bad form for much longer. Apart from spinners Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar and fast bowlers, Mumbai also has additional bowlers in the form of Pandya and Kieron Pollard.
