After registering a terrific win over KXIP in the last game, Mumbai Indians would have gained their confidence back. They are gradually sliding up the ladder and are placed at the 5th position with 3 wins in 6 games. They need to win all of their upcoming contests. However, this won’t be that much easy for them as their next opponents are Knight Riders.
MI and KKR will lock horns in the first match of Sunday’s doubleheader at Wankhede Mumbai. The clash will begin at 04:00 PM Local.
KKR grabbed a huge 6 wickets win over CSK at Eden Gardens in their last game. They are placed third with 5 wins in 9 games.
So, let’s move forwards to MI vs KKR team news and MI vs KKR dream11 prediction.
Both the team have registered a win in their last game. While KKR grabbed an easy win by 6 wickets over CSK, MI clinched a 6 wicket win over KXIP. Mumbai Indians are expected to remain unchanged. However, KKR can undergo one or two changes. They can bring in Nitesh Rana who missed the last game due to an injury. M Johnson has proved expensive in last two games and Tom Curran can replace him against MI. Rest no changes are expected in both the sides.
Nitish Rana is fit to play and might replace Rinku Singh in playing 11.
Ben Cutting might make way for M Rahman

Both the teams are expected to make one or two changes. The probable MI vs KKR playing 11 is listed below.
Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Jean-Paul Duminy, Ben Cutting/M Rahman, Evin Lewis, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande
Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Chris Lynn, Mitchell Johnson/Tom Curran, Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell, Kuldeep Yadav, Rinku Singh/Nitesh Rana, Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Piyush Chawla, Shivam Mavi
For Mumbai Indians, Surya Kumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, and Hardik Pandya will be crucial. Surya Kumar Yadav is in a good form throughout the tournament. He is the leading run scorer for MI. The form of Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis is a concern.
In bowling, J Bumrah and M McClenaghan are the key bowlers while M Markande is amongst the most wicket-taker in the tournament. He has taken 12 wickets so far.
In Kolkata, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik and Nitish Rana are the top run scorers. Chris Lynn’s form is a concern for KKR. Nitish Rana is also subject to fitness. Shubman Gill scored a crucial fifty and can play a crucial role.
In bowling, P Chawla, Sunil Narine, and Kuldeep Yadav will take the charge.
Both the teams are coming after a win in their last win. While it has been a mixed tournament so far for KKR, MI failed to start like the defending champions. They are standing in a position from where they cannot afford one more loss.
Facing off KKR wouldn’t be easy for them. However, with the clash being taking place at Wankhede, Mumbai Indians can breathe a sigh of relief.
However, as per our MUM vs KOL Dream11 predictions, the visitors will be favorite.
Both Ishan Kishan and Dinesh Karthik will be good choices for wicket-keeper. We will prefer DK over Ishan Kishan due to his consistency and form.
In batting, C Lynn, Evin Lewis, Surya Kumar Yadav, Robin Uthappa and Rohit Sharma will be the key batters.
In all-rounder, you will have to make choices. Sunil Narine and Andre Russell are performing well for KKR while Pandya brothers are contributing well in MI.
In bowling, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, M McClenaghan, and Shivam Mavi will be crucial.
You can go with the above MI vs KKR Dream11 team or make your own team.
