Mumbai Indians will lock horns against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 51st match of the IPL 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Following their tough defeat at the hands of LSG away, MI are staring down the barrel as far their IPL playoff chances are concerned. Meanwhile, KKR got back to winning ways with a stunning performance at home against DC, to showcase why they are still one of the teams to beat in the IPL 2024.

Pitch Report

The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai was last used nearly three weeks ago in the ongoing season of the IPL due to MI’s four consecutive away matches, which is why the pitch for their upcoming match against KKR will be fresh, loaded with runs for the incredibly strong batting lineups of both teams. With that, the average first innings score of 170 at this venue in the history of the IPL, could be very hard for either MI or KKR to defend when they take the field on May 3.

Team Analysis

Mumbai Indians

The highly fancied top order of Mumbai Indians came a cropper against Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2024, but thanks to the decent contributions from Nehal Wadhera and Tim David in the lower middle order. The MI bowlers, including the likes of the captain Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and Nuwan Thushara, gave a good account of themselves in defending the 144-run total, but it wasn’t enough for a win.

Tilak Varma, Tim David, Harvik Desai, Arjun Tendulkar, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Jasprit Bumrah, Kumar Kartikeya, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal, Luke Wood, Romario Shepherd, Gerald Coetzee, Shreyas Gopal, Nuwan Thushara, Naman Dhir, Anshul Kamboj, Mohammad Nabi, Shivalik Sharma, Kwena Maphaka. Players injured/withdrawn: Jason Behrendorff, Dilshan Madushanka, Vishnu Vinod.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders batters had a comparatively easier task to chase a 153-run total against Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2024, and they made light work of it with Phil Salt’s fifty, and contributions from other batters in the team. It was the KKR bowlers, including the likes of Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine, Harshit Rana, and Vaibhav Arora, who picked up wickets consistently against DC, to restrict them to a below par score.
