Rohit Sharma will aim to make it two in two when Mumbai Indians take on Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 2020 on Friday. Watch MI vs KKR Live.
Table-toppers Mumbai Indians will look to extend their winning run when they face Kolkata Knight Riders for the second time in the Indian Premier League this season on Friday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The last time MI went up against KKR in IPL 2020, MI’s captain Rohit Sharma led from the front with a clinical 54-ball 80 as KKR crashed to a 49-run loss. Indian cricket fans can watch MI vs KKR on live streaming and on TV.
Mumbai Indians come into this match high on confidence, having won four games in a row, while Kolkata Knight Riders slumped to an 82-run loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game.
While Suryakumar Yadav and Quinton de Kock, along with Rohit Sharma, have been making contributions with the bat for MI, they are well complemented by their bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah.
Mumbai’s all-rounders Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya have also chipped in, especially at the death overs.
Kolkata Knight Riders, however, will need to settle their batting order soon if they are to make a strong case for the IPL playoffs berth.
Since their senior players Andre Russell, Eoin Morgan and captain Dinesh Karthik are struggling for form, the onus has fallen on youngsters Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi to guide the ship.
KKR’s star allrounder Sunil Narine was reported for suspect action on Sunday and missed the last match.
Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders have met in the IPL on 26 occasions with MI taking 20 wins and KKR six.
