IPL 2021, KKR vs MI Team Predicted Playing 11 Today Match, Live Cricket Score Updates: Defending Champions Mumbai will try their best to beat KKR as Rohit Sharma's men are desperate to register victory after they lost to RCB in the first match.
IPL 2021, KKR vs MI Team Predicted Playing 11 for Today Match LIVE Updates: Fresh from their clinical display against Sunrisers Hyderabad, two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders will look to set the record straight against nemesis Mumbai Indians in their second IPL match in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Having missed the last two playoffs, KKR looked a completely different unit, in the manner in which they defeated SRH by 10 runs in their IPL opener on Sunday.
Be it the aggression shown by the top-order or the explosive finish by Dinesh Karthik, KKR’s displayed a fearless approach under skipper Eoin Morgan. Morgan’s intent was evident right at the toss when he chose to leave out their most-trusted lieutenant, Sunil Narine.
MI will pose real challenge for KKR as the title hoders would be desperate to secure their first win of the season after their two-wicket loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL opener on Friday. KRR found it easy against SRH bowlers, which lacked firepower but in Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, MI attack will be a completely different proposition.

On nine out of 10 occasions, Sanju Samson would have backed himself to deposit Arshdeep Singh over the long-off boundary. Perhaps, fatigue got the better of him on Monday. Samson was batting on 119 off 62 deliveries, when he ended up slicing it to Deepak Hooda — the man who had set it up for Punjab Kings in the first innings. The result was a 4-run loss for Rajasthan Royals, capping a tense, manic match that saw superlative stroke-play from both sides. [Read More]
If Quinton de Kock is still in quarantine, MI may have to persist with Lynn at the top, otherwise they may go back to their preferred left-right opening combination of Rohit and de Kock. MI’s explosive middle-order consisting Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and the Pandya brothers — Hardik and Krunal — also failed to fire to be restricted to 159 for nine.
