Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders, September 23, IPL 2021 Prediction
September 23, 2021 7:30 pm
Since the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) went underway, we have seen some end-to-end sporting actions between familiar foes. The 34th match of the IPL regular season will occur when the Mumbai Indians take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. We expect both teams to put up a real fight, with the Kolkata Knight Riders just 4 points off the Mumbai Indians.
Both teams have played seven games each. Although they have somewhat had inconsistent runs since the start of the season, Mumbai Indians has had the more impressive run of the two teams. Even though Mumbai has lost three games this season, they were the better team when these two met in game five this season.
Kolkata Knight Riders are currently only better than Sunrisers Hyderabad, according to the league table. The last game the team won was against Punjab Kings, who are only 2 points ahead, having played one more game than Kolkata.
Although Kolkata Knight Riders would be looking to kickstart a good run against a familiar opponent, they would have to do it against all odds. According to their head-to-head, in the last 18 games, Mumbai Indians have won 14 times. Worst of all, KKR only won once in their previous ten meetings with MI.
Match Predictions and Odds
Not much has changed since these two last met. The teams are still very much intact, and we expect them to field their best players. For Mumbai, we would be expecting to see Rohit Sharma be the fore Batsman, and Shubman Gill of Kolkata Knight Riders should be his opposite number.
In addition to that, we expect that Jasprit Bumrah and Varun Chakravarthy would take centre stage as the top Bowlers for MI and KKR, respectively. With both teams at full strength, our IPL MI vs KRR Match 34 prediction favours Mumbai Indians. We predict MI to win by at least ten runs.
Even though the current head-to-head stats suggest that Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders are unevenly matched, the match won’t be easy for MI. Their opponents, the Kolkata Knight Riders, would be looking for redemption, so we expect a close, exciting game. You can take part in the action by visiting 4rabet to place your bets now!
