Both teams have been fairly consistent in the history of the Indian Premier League and thus a closely-fought contest seems likely on the cards. However, Mumbai Indians will be the more confident team ahead of this game as they have defeated the Kolkata Knight Riders in their last three meetings. They have performed well at this ground of late, winning four of their past six matches and they have also beaten KKR here four times out of five. Of course, there will be pressure on MI after their defeat at Pune but we predict the hosts to come back strong and open their account on the points table.

The team has no injury concerns at the moment with all their players fully fit for this game. The selectors are likely to stick with the same group of eleven that played against Rising Pune Supergiant in the first game.
Jos Buttler and Rohit Sharma will be the key at the top of the Mumbai Indians’ batting lineup while Kieron Pollard is going to be their best man down the order. Buttler looked in form in his brisk knock of 38 against Rising Pune Supergiant and the team will want him to play a big innings in this upcoming match. Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers the other night and his ability to hit the blockhole makes him a dangerous bowler, especially at the death.
Mumbai Indians have begun their IPL 2017 campaign on a losing note as they went down to Rising Pune Supergiant in their opening fixture. Bowling is an area where they will need to work on ahead of their Sunday’s clash with the Kolkata Knight Riders. They will be disappointed with their effort with the ball as they failed to defend what was a good score on that surface.
Fast bowler Umesh Yadav has recovered from injury but has been given extended rest time and is expected to play in KKR’s third league game against Kings XI Punjab. The rest of the squad is in good physical condition.
The opening pair of Gautam Gambhir and Chris Lynn was enough to take KKR home against the Gujarat Lions in their opening game. Both look in terrific form, especially Lynn who blitzed 93 runs off 41 balls and the team will back him for another big knock against the Mumbai Indians. Kuldeep Yadav was the star with the ball. The chinaman picked up two key wickets of McCullum and Finch while conceding only 25 runs from four overs. He was also impressive in India’s last test against Australia and is likely to do well in this upcoming match.
Kolkata Knight Riders managed to qualify for the playoffs last season as they pipped Mumbai Indians for the fourth spot on the points table after winning 8 of their 14 league-stage games. However, their run in the competition did not last for long as they were knocked out by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator.
