Player battle - Hardik vs Narine
What Russell is for KKR, Hardik Pandya is for MI. He has been scoring at a strike rate of close to 200 in IPL 2019 and KKR will have to get him out early if they are thinking about winning this game. Sunil Narine is their best bet against Pandya. While the Indian all-rounder has been severe against the spinners, he has maintained a measured approach against Narine in the IPL. He only scores at a strike rate of 113.7 off Narine but he has not got out even once.
Player battle - Rohit vs Gurney
The last time KKR faced MI at the Eden Gardens, KKR’s left-arm seamer Harry Gurney got the better of MI captain Rohit Sharma and there is no reason why he cannot repeat it at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Rohit certainly would not like to believe the same way. He would once again look to give a solid start.
Player battle - Karthik vs Krunal
The battle of the middle overs could be decided on how KKR captain Dinesh Karthik negates the threat of MI left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya. Rohit has already named Krunal as the game changer for MI and the senior Pandya has a good record against Karthik. He has dismissed Karthik twice in IPL and has conceded only 9 runs off 12 balls.
Player battle - Russell vs Malinga
He may have past his hay days but Lasith Malinga still continues to be a force to reckon with for Mumbai Indians. With the kind of experience he has, it won’t be a surprise if MI captain Rohit Sharma entrusts Malinga with the responsibility to stop KKR’s most dangerous batsman Andre Russell. Russell got stuck into Malinga a week ago at the Eden Gardens and the Sri Lanka would look to give it back at Wankhede on Sunday.
Player battle - Lynn vs Bumrah
Chris Lynn has been in good form at the top of the order for KKR this season. He has scored two half-centuries in his last five innings and much of KKR’s success depends on the kind of start Lynn provides at the top of the order. And that’s where Jasprit Bumrah comes into play for MI. Currently regarded as one of the best limited overs in the world, Bumrah has enjoyed a good time against Lynn. He has already dismissed the Australian opener twice in IPL and he would look to increase the number on Sunday.
MI eye revenge
Mumbai Indians, who have already qualified for the playoffs will eye revenge after KKR after they had suffered a 34-run defeat in Kolkata in a high-scoring thriller despite Hardik Pandya’s breath-taking 91 off 34 balls. Also the result of the match which finalize on which position Mumbai finish and who will be their opponent in the play-off.
KKR’s bowling woes
For KKR, their bowling has been the biggest concern as their bowlers have been ripped apart by their opponents both in the Powerplay as well as at the death. Pacers Harry Gurney, Sandeep Warrier, Narine and Piyush Chawla will have to bowl a tight line and length to restrict the famed Mumbai batters.
MI’s big-name bowlers
If the likes of seasoned Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah, Krunal Pandya and leggie Rahul Chahar have to be taken to task, then KKR batsman will have to put up a special show. Russell, who has been consistently delivering for his team, will have to showcase his prowess and mettle once again.
KKR in-form openers
With Chris Lynn and Shubhman Gill coming good and the marauding Andre Russell to follow at No 4, skipper Dinesh Karthik would fancy his chances at the batting-friendly Wankhede. Gill’s confidence would have boosted after his back-to-back half-centuries against Mumbai Indians (at home) and Kings Xi Punjab. His unbeaten 65 off 49 balls steered KKR to a seven-wicket victory against KXIP in Mohali on Friday.
MI on a high
MI would like to carry on the winning momentum as 18 points and a better net run-rate than both first placed Chennai Super Kings and third placed Delhi Capitals will give them two shots at qualifying for the final.
