About the Match: The table-toppers Mumbai Indians will play their next match against the mid-table side Kolkata Knight Riders in a yet another interesting T20 match in this year’s IPL 2020 on 16th Oct at the Skeikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Mumbai Indians team: With a completely balanced bowling and batting side, the Mumbai Indians will play their next match against the KKR and hopefully we will be able to see some balanced performance this time too. Their opening partnerships till now have played a crucial part in their overall score; hence all eyes will be stuck on their first 3 batsmen who are as usual expected to play good cricket. Apart from the top 3, their lineup this year is something like this:-
Anmolpreet Singh, Chris Lynn, Rohit Sharma, Saurabh Tiwary, Sherfane Rutherford, Suryakumar Yadav, Anukul Roy, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Aditya Tare, Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock, Dhawal Kulkarni, Digvijay Deshmukh, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah, Jayant Yadav, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mohsin Khan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Prince Balwant Rai, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult.
Kolkata Knight Riders: With two of their last 3 matches ending up at the very last ball, Kolkata Knight riders have shown some good performance when it comes to defending their target. Whereas they have failed to score any runs when they chase and the biggest example of this was shown by them in the last match against RCB where they failed to score even 120+. Their bowling side is performing a bit better than their batting and has some of the biggest names in the cricket world and hence their ipl 2020 player list is as follows:-
Eoin Morgan, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh, Shubman Gill, Siddhesh Lad, Tom Banton, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik, Nikhil Naik, Ali Khan, Chris Green, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Manimaran Siddharth, Pat Cummins, Prasidh Krishna, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.
The table-toppers are without any doubt the favorites against the Knight riders, as they have a better-balanced team than their opponent. The Russel spark is yet to come in this IPL, but we will surely look upon the big names in both the teams as anyone can change the face of the game anytime. And that is why the cricdaddy ipl match prediction today heavily favors the Mumbai Indians in this match.
