KKR vs MI Preview

KKR vs MI: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will face off at the historic Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata on Saturday, May 11. A victory for KKR will secure them a spot in the playoffs, while MI has already been eliminated from the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer, KKR is enjoying a remarkable run, having won eight out of the eleven matches they have played so far. They are currently on a three-match winning streak, with their latest victory being a convincing 98-run triumph against Lucknow Super Giants. The hosts have a formidable opening pair of Phil Salt and Sunil Narine to count on who have proved to be the X-factor for the 2-time winners on most occasions this season.

Having previously defeated MI by 24 runs at the Wankhede Stadium earlier this month, KKR aims to achieve another victory over their opponents and secure a place in the playoffs.

KKR vs MI Pitch Report

Eden Gardens is known for producing excellent pitches with a lightning-quick outfield. Last month, Punjab Kings successfully chased down a target of 262 runs at this venue, demonstrating its batting-friendly nature. In the current season, the average first innings score at Eden Gardens is 205, with chasing teams winning four out of six matches. Opting to bowl first after winning the toss might be advantageous. Despite experiencing rainfall throughout the week, Eden Gardens boasts excellent drainage facilities, ensuring a full 40-over contest for the fans.
