Talking of the match no. 22nd of the ongoing edition of Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the day match of the April 16's double header at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai, who after losing their first two matches of the season marked their maiden win against Delhi Capitals on April 11. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders would wish to defeat the hosts and with that, register their winning hattrick in their next fixture.
In the last two clashes of both the teams, MI and KKR have won one toss each. However, speaking of this season, MI has won only one toss out of the three matches they have played. Coincidentally, in that match, MI took down DC to register their first win of the season. On the other hand, KKR have also managed to win only one toss out of their three fixtures they have played so far.
But, when we look at the fact that Wankhede is Mumbai’s home ground, the condition might favour the record-time IPL winners. Therefore, we feel that MI will win the toss in their upcoming clash against KKR.
Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders have clashed against each other 31 times in the history of the Indian Premier League. Out of those 31 clashes, MI have won 22, whereas Kolkata emerged victorious in only 9 of them, which clearly shows Mumbai’s dominance against the Kolkata-based franchise. However, as far as the IPL 2023 is considered, Mumbai have managed to win one match only, whereas KKR is performing better. Therefore, we feel KKR will emerge victorious in the upcoming encounter.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The first inning score of the match will range somewhere between 165-170, and the powerplay score will range between 45 and 50.
