Mumbai and Kolkata have been two of the top teams in the history of the Indian T20 League. But this season, both of these teams have not lived up to the expectations. When they went head to head in Pune, Kolkata stole away an incredible win, where Pat Cummins smashed 56 in 15 balls. Entering this fixture, Mumbai won their previous game against Gujarat, whereas Kolkata lost to Lucknow.
Mumbai continues to pull off upsets as they have defeated dominant teams like Rajasthan and Gujarat. Several players from the team have displayed a lot of promise. Tilak Varma has been one of the best young batters this season along with Suryakumar Yadav’s incredible consistency. In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah has been Mumbai’s best bowler as he continues to take a lot of wickets while being very economical.
After ending their five-game losing streak, Kolkata suffered a humiliating defeat against Lucknow. The two-time champions have a great team and can still get some wins. Their batting lineup has stars like Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana alongside all-rounders like Andre Russell. In the bowling, Sunil Narine has been their top performer so far.
