KKR Vs MI Dream11 Team: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and (MI) are two of the most popular IPL teams over the years and have shared a total of 6 IPL trophies between themselves, but if you look at the head to head stats of these two teams, it’s heavily in the favor of Mumbai. Out of the 25 matches that KKR and MI have played against each other, MI has won 19 as compared to KKR’s 6 victories.
The match will be played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi and the starting time is 07:30 PM IST. The weather is going to be extremely hot in Abu Dhabi tomorrow with the chances of the maximum temperature going up to 38 degree Celsius.
KKR has won two IPL titles, but the last time they did it was in 2014. They have not been a very consistent force in the IPL in the last 5 years. MI, on the other hand, has won the IPL every alternate year since 2013.
Even though the average second innings score at Sheikh Zayed Stadium is lesser than the average first innings score, the chasing team won the last game here and the captains might be interested in chasing again because of the possible dew factor.
KKR Vs MI Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
Both these teams have come into this tournament with the tag of favorites. So, the game is expected to go all the way down to the wire, but KKR’s bowling is probably a tad bit better than MI’s this season and it shouldn’t surprise people if they manage to beat MI because of their efficiency with the ball.
KKR playing 11 (expected): Sunil Narine, Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik (C & WK), Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna
MI playing 11 (expected): Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Surya Kumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
Sunil Narine: Sunil Narine, most likely, will open the batting for KKR and will bowl his full quota with the ball as well. While he hit the ball as sweetly as ever in the recently concluded CPL, he also bowled with a lot of penetration and given his recent form, he can be the most ideal choice as Dream11 captain.
Quinton de Kock: Quinton de Kock would be gutted with the way he got out in the first game because he was creaming everything from the middle of the bat, but ended up smashing one straight into the hands of Shane Watson at mid-wicket after scoring 30 odd. The South African left-hander looked in ominous form and can be the game changer for MI against KKR.
Eoin Morgan: Eoin Morgan seems to have gone up a gear in terms of his T20 batting of late. He was always very, very good, but he is at his peak now and is an extremely dangerous batsman, batting down the order at no. 5. He is another player who can earn a lot of fantasy points.
Hardik Pandya: Hardik Pandya was unlucky the other day that he was caught miraculously at the long off boundary by Faf du Plessis, but he played some really clean hits before that. Hardik can turn out to be a key player in the middle order for MI, particularly against the KKR spinners.
