  • KKR team won 6 out of 13 matches they have played and it is very clear situation for them if they will win against Mumbai they will qualify for Playoffs otherwise SRH will enter in top 4.
  • After Russell interview in media every thing is back on the track, now Kartik has started taking good decision by opening with Shubhman Gill and promoting Andre Russell top of the order.
  • C Lynn and Shubman Gill will open the inning for KKR, both the openers are looking in great touch. S Gill has open the inning 4 times for KKR and has scored 65,14,65,76 runs where Lynn has 2 fifties to his name in last 4 matches(51,0,54,46).
  • If wickets will fall early then Uthappa will come at one down, he has failed to convert his start into big one in this IPL. In last 3 outings he has scored( 22, 9,0,28)
  • Nitish Rana and Dinesh Karthik will bat next. Rana has also performed only in patches, KKR needs a consistent performance from him. In last 4 outings he has only one half century to his name.(11,11,85,21,-,-)
  • Slowly and Slowly Kartik is coming into his groove, he is striking the ball very fluently, he is unbeaten in last 3 t20s-(97*,15*,21*).
  • A Russell will do late hitting duty . Rusell is one of the best hitters of the ball at this time and is in terrific form.He played innings of 48, 49 ,62 ,48 , 50 , 45 , 65, 15 ,14, 80, 24 till now. He can get promoted anytime for his hard hitting any time at any position.He has single handedly changed the course of match in almost all the matches. He seems to be form of his life.Kallis indicated that Rusell will get chance to bat little above than his position.
  • KKR death bowling is cause of concern for them, in previous match Harry Gurney has conceded 22 runs in his last overs and this story has been repeated by them in this whole season.
  • Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla/ Kuldeep Yadav will lead the spin attack, In last two odis Chawla has conceded too may runs, in last 4 matches he has 4 wickets to his name, even that has came in only one match. His last 4 matches performance are- (0/38, 3/20, 1/57, 0/43)  so he can make way for Kuldeep Yadav in playing 11.
  • Sunil Narine has bowled economical spells as usual, his last 4 matches performance are-(0/34, 2/25,2/44, 0/29)
  • Sandeep Warrier has impressed every one with his last two matches performance in previous match he has taken 2 wicket haul against Kings11 punjab which has helped his team in restricting then under par score on that pitch. His last 2 matches performance are-(0/29,2/31)

  • Mumbai Indians are looking in good form .They have won 8 out of 13 matches till now, by winning this match they would like to finish in the top 2.
  • They can replace E Lewis by M Mclenaghan/B Hendricks and bring back Ishan Kishan/Yuvraj in place of B Sran.
  • Q De Kock and Rohit Sharma are expected to open the inning for the team.Both are highly talented and technically strong batsman. De Cock was not fluent as much as he is but sticking on the pitch till 20th overs he has helped his team to put par score on that pitch. His last 5 outing are- (35, 65,15,0,69)
  • De Kock is highest scorer of team and has scored 3 half century and 1 score in 40s till now.

  • H Pandya is man in form for Mumbai, he has done wonders with the bat for Mumbai in this IPL specially in slog overs.
