Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians is the second game today, with Kolkata wanting to stay in the top two and Mumbai hoping to regain their winnings ways. Shruti has her prediction in place, read on or listen to her podcast right here..
Kolkata seem to do a lot of things right. They have the right vision, enthusiasm, and a very strong desire to win, but what they may not have today is batting consistency and with Mumbai’s bowlers managing to step up, this could be quite a tough competition. Kolkata’s bowlers may just give Mumbai a bit of a lenient start but as they get into a good rhythm, Mumbai’s batsmen may find themselves a little on the defensive only to unleash towards the end again.
This is one game I am looking forward to, not because it’s a Mumbai game, but because the sense of desperation and intensity in both teams should be quite high. But now, I’m going with the team that seems most consistent in all areas, and so it’s tarot advantage Mumbai Indians.
