MI vs KKR Dream11 Team | Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knights Riders Match Preview | Fantasy Team

Kolkata Knight Riders could catch the very last train to Indian Premier League playoffs if they win against Mumbai Indians and better the net run rate of Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Kolkata based team will travel to Mumbai to give everything to win and they will hope that the other results go in their favour to help them.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, will not show any sympathy to their opponents and they will want to win this game to have a positive mindset before the playoffs. Having secured the passage to the next stage, Mumbai Indians will want to perform to the best of their abilities and not get complacent at this crucial juncture.

However, the onus will be on the Kolkata Knight Riders to take on the home side and take the initiative. They will hope that Andre Russell delivers yet again to take them in the playoffs. The Windies all-rounder has been brilliant for his team and he will need to have a big match to give his team hope.
