Match Report ; KKR v MI, 5th Match IPL 2021


Two strong teams on paper, Dominating head to head record by Mumbai and many battles to watch out for tonight. Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Pat Cummins, Eoin Morgan and many more stars to watch out for.

A battle to watch out for :
Pat Cummins has an impressive record against Mumbai Indians’ all-rounder Pat Cummins. He dismissed Kieron Pollard for three times in T20 cricket and conceded just 34 runs on strike Rate of below 100.

“We would have fielded first as well. There was some dew in the first game against RCB, but the ball was turning. Last game we were 20 runs short, so we need to bat well. Of course you want to win every game, but we didn’t play to our potential in the first game. We need to understand where we went wrong and learn from it. We got only 30 runs in the last 4 overs, that was our mistake. We also discussed the shots to be playing on slow pitches. Let’s hope we rectify that today. Unfortunately Chris Lynn misses and de Kock is back again.” Rohit Sharma called

“We are going to bowl first. Looks similar to the last one, not sure if the dew will come in later. We are delighted, we are trying to play aggressive brand of cricket here. It’s a challenge to continue in that manner. No changes in the side. Shakib was handed a special cap to mark his 50th game for KKR.” Eoin Morgan added
