KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS VS MUMBAI INDIANS : MATCH PREVIEW & PREDICTIONS

Hello And Welcome To All In Addi’s prediction

Here Is The Today Match Preview By ‘Mi Lu’

Indian Premier League, 2018

 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians

The Big Picture

After edging out the Kolkata Knight Riders by 13 runs in a nail-biting thriller at the Wankhede, the Mumbai Indians would be looking for an encore when they take on KKR at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday night.

It was a much-improved performance by the defending champions with the opening pair in Yadav (59) and Lewis (43) putting on a swashbuckling 91 for the first wicket, and a breezy cameo by Hardik Pandya (35 off 20 balls) led them to a respectable 4-181 in 20 overs.

Kolkata lost Lynn ((17) and Shubhman Gill (7) early, but an 84-run stand between Uthappa (54) and Rana (31) revived their innings, but Hardik Pandya (2-19) and the duo of McClenaghan (1-30) and Jasprit Bumrah (1-34) restricted the charge from Dinesh Karthik (36), who for once, was not able to finish off the chase.

The return-encounter offers different implications for both teams, while KKR would want a win in a bid to solidify their position in top four, the defending champions would have to win at all cost if they are to entertain any thoughts of making it to the playoffs.

Pitch Conditions:

The Eden Gardens pitch has been considered as one of the better conditions for batting whilst assisting spinners, evident from Kolkata Knight Riders strategy of fielding plethora of spinners over the years. The 2016 season though saw the pitch being re-laid and being more conducive to fast as well as reverse-swing bowling evident from the rout of RCB (49 all out) inflicted by the likes of Coulter Nile and Woakes last year.

Statistics over the years: While over the past ten years, the average first innings score has swelled from 167 to 179, the team batting first has won 37.1% times while the chasing side has 62.9% of the occasions.
