IPL 2021: Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders: Dream11, Possible Playing 11, Match Prediction

IPL 2021: MI vs KKR: Dream11

Abu Dhabi, September 21: Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will lock horns in an IPL 2021 match here at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Thursday (September 23). Once again, it will be a clash between two teams that stare at a similar goal.

Mumbai Indians, who went down to Chennai Super Kings on Sunday, will need a win to hang on to their top four spot, as a slip-up can push them in to the bottom half.

They will have their eyes fixed on the fitness of skipper Rohit Sharma, who sat out of the match against CSK as he has been recuperating from a niggle that he sustained during the tour of England.

Similarly, Hardik Pandya too had missed the first match but coach Mahela Jayawardene had confirmed that both Rohit and Hardik are fit could be available for selection for the match against the Knight Riders.

And as for the Knight Riders, they made a bright start to the second phase of the IPL 2021 with a big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, a 9-wicket towelling. The win had lifted them to fifth spot from seventh spot but to they need to keep winning to maintain their hopes for entering top four and get a ticket to the play-offs.

It may be a blessing for them that they have already had a taste of conditions in the Abu Dhabi during the match against the Royal Challengers and it could be an advantage for them.

They will be hoping that the KKR batsmen and bowlers would once again produce that cohesive effort.

The slow start again seemed to be haunting the Mumbai Indians. And the KKR are coming off a big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Morgan-led Kolkata in that sense might just have a small edge over their rivals.
