MI vs KKR Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 22 | MI vs KOL Dream11 Prediction Today | Wankhede Pitch Report

Mumbai Indians (MI) will face off against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 22nd match of IPL 2023 at Wankhede Stadium. MI registered their first win of the season in the last game against Delhi Capitals. The form of Rohit Sharma will please Mumbai Indians, and they would want him to continue the good run. MI bowlers also did a decent job in the match, but the challenge is now backing it up against a KKR side that is capable of scoring big.

Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders suffered a defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday (April 14). Their bowlers looked out of sorts as SRH batters belted them all over the park. While Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh batted well, KKR couldn’t get over the finishing line. The Knight Riders would want other batters to support Nitish and Rinku as they enter a crucial phase of the league, which means the onus is on the top order to deliver.

Match Details

  • Location: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
  • Time: 3:30pm (IST).

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Rohit Sharma likes batting against Kolkata Knight Riders. In 31 innings, the MI captain has 1020 runs at a sensational average of 42.50 and a strike rate of 129.77 against them. Rohit has also made six half-centuries and a century against KKR.
  • Cameron Green hasn’t fired as per the expectations so far. However, he batted well in the last game against Delhi Capitals, scoring 17 runs at a strike rate of 212.50. The surface in Wankhede will also suit him with both bat and ball.
  • Suryakumar Yadav has been out of touch for a while now. However, he boasts of having a decent record against KKR. Since 2018, Suryakumar has scored 337 runs at a 42.12 average and a 145.25 strike rate against them. Can this match finally bring SKY’s magic back?
  • Tilak Varma is a must-pick player in the fantasy team. The southpaw has barely put a foot wrong in the tournament. In the three innings, Tilak has accumulated 147 runs at a 73.50 average and a strike rate of 158.06 this year.
  • Jason Behrendorff might enjoy bowling with the new ball at Wankhede. The bowlers get some swing in the powerplay, and Behrendorff had also done it in the past.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz has batted reasonably well in IPL 2023. The boundaries are relatively short in Wankhede, and Gurbaz can exploit it. He just needs to be cautious against Jason Behrendorff, though.
  • Venkatesh Iyer has looked in good nick this season. In the three innings, Iyer has 146 runs at a sublime batting average of 73 and a strike rate of 153.68 against Mumbai Indians. With the kind of form he’s in, Iyer can build on this impressive record.
  • Nitish Rana played an excellent knock against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last game. Overall, Rana has 145 runs at an average of 36.25 and a strike rate of 157.60 in IPL 2023. Expect another quality knock against Mumbai Indians.
  • Andre Russell doesn’t require any validation. While Russell hasn’t been in good form with the willow, he is a runaway match-winner on his day. In the last game against SRH, Russell also snared three vital wickets with the ball.
  • Rinku Singh is the talisman of Kolkata Knight Riders. He made a fighting fifty against Sunrisers Hyderabad in a losing cause. Rinku can again do some damage to an already depleted MI bowling unit.
  • Sunil Narine has scalped 23 wickets at a strike rate of 20.65 against Mumbai Indians. He also concedes only 6.60 runs per over against them. Another good outing is well on the cards.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 31, MI 22, KKR 9.
  • Rohit Sharma vs Sunil Narine in the IPL: 137 runs, 19.57 avg, 107.87 SR & 7 dismissals. Narine might come early to attack Rohit Sharma again.
  • Andre Russell vs leg spinners in IPL 2023: 10 runs, 3.33 avg, 83.33 SR & 3 dismissals. Piyush Chawla can trouble him today.
  • Tim David in the last four overs at Wankhede Stadium: 72 runs, 327.27 SR in 22 balls. 40.90% of the deliveries have been hit for six by David.
  • Suryakumar Yadav has been dismissed on a golden duck four times in the last six innings across formats.
