KKR vs MI Dream11 Prediction Match 5 Team by Expert IPL 13 April | Kheltalk Fantasy cricket

Nitish Rana did well to score a brilliant half-century in the last game where he got out for 80 from just 56. He certainly deserved a ton that day. Having said that, Rana has this habit of scoring a duck after scoring a big score. This has been a trend in the last edition something he would love to break here.

According to KKR vs MI Dream11 Prediction for Today’s Match Fantasy Cricket, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Mumbai Indians in the 5th match of the VIVO IPL, 2020-21 on Tuesday, 13th April 2021, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Keep reading to find out about the VIVO IPL, 2020-21 5th Match KKR vs MI Dream11 team today.

As we all know, Mumbai Indians never take their first match seriously. It’s more of a practice contest for them and their real match-ups start only from the 2nd match and they usually win almost everything from here, including the trophy. Now, this match everything interesting. To add more, the team will have the services of Quinton de Kock here, who was in quarantine during the first contest. The team will look to bounce back here after losing to RCB at this same venue a couple of days ago.

On the other hand, Kolkata had an excellent start to the tournament where they stole a win from Sunrisers recently. The latter messed up the chase in a match that they should have won convincingly, considering the fact that they had lost only five wickets.

Pitch Report of Chepauk Stadium

All these years, we have witnessed the spinners dominating the Chepauk stadium. CSK used to play with more spinners and each one of them returned with wickets. However, this year, none of the spinners have done well at this venue so far and almost every one of them returned wicketless. 

So, going by the couple of matches we have seen here, the bowlers with more variations will be the star of the night and those who can consistently produce fuller deliveries can prove successful. 

At this venue, 48 of the matches are won by the team batting first and 34 matches are won by the team batting second. While batting second has been the trend at the moment, both teams might reconsider the same. 

Weather Report Of Chennai

It’s insane to expect Chennai to be not sunny during the month of April but the temperature will be a bit lower than what we had witnessed this week. The temperature will be around 32 degrees Celcius during the afternoon and is expected to get cloudy and fall to 29 degrees Celcius during the time of the match. There is zero chance of rain on Tuesday.

Fantasy Cricket Expert Tips:

Rohit Sharma has an excellent record at this venue as well as against Kolkata Knight Riders. He began well in the last match but was unfortunately run out. Once again, he will begin this contest as a favourite while Rahul Tripathi is more of a mandatory selection here.

KKR Squad

KKR Squad: Eoin Morgan (Captain), Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, G S Mann, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Rahul Tripathi, Varun Chakravarthy, Pawan Negi, Tim Seifert, Shakib al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer

KKR News:

Kolkata are likely to go ahead with the same combination here as well considering they were able to pull off a win here. If there is a chance, the team might look to change the batting order and would look to open with Rahul Tripathi who is in excellent form at the moment. However, it is kind of unlikely to happen.

KKR vs MI Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain

It is always wise to go in with the in-form players as the captain of the fantasy team.

Here are a few predictions for the captain pick for the KKR vs MI clash

Rohit Sharma will be the player to watch out for once again here. He is in good form lately and has an excellent record against KKR. Even in the last edition, he went on to score 80 runs which came in just 54 deliveries. The MI skipper has seven fifty-plus against Kolkata. 

Rahul Tripathi has a healthy strike rate, above 150, since 2019. He is likely to play inside the top three which makes it interesting. Last year, he couldn’t make a mark against Mumbai and will look to change things here. In the last match against SRH, he played an excellent hand to score a half-century. 

Here are a few picks for the Vice-captain in the Dream 11 team for KKR vs MI clash

Shubman Gill was the star of the match when Kolkata defeated Mumbai last time. It came in 2019 where the youngster went on to smash 76 runs from just 45 deliveries with six fours and four sixes to his name. Though he didn’t do well in this year’s first match, one can certainly back him to come good today. 

Quinton de Kock is back to the setup and will be taking over the opening spot as well as the keeping gloves today. The South African keeper was the star performer for Mumbai Indians in their last edition, against the same opponent, he ended up scoring 80 from just 54 deliveries with six sixes to his name last year.

KKR vs MI Dream11 Prediction Top Picks by Experts

Nitish Rana did well to score a brilliant half-century in the last game where he got out for 80 from just 56. He certainly deserved a ton that day. Having said that, Rana has this habit of scoring a duck after scoring a big score. This has been a trend in the last edition something he would love to break here. 

Pat Cummins, interestingly, was the star performer for KKR against MI in both the meetings last year. No, not with the ball, but with the bat. He ended up scoring a good 30-plus knock in the second game and had a half-century in the first. 

Suryakumar Yadav is just too good to be ignored on the fantasy side. The top-order batter is in excellent form at the moment, had a good start to the tournament as well where he made 31 from 23 deliveries. Against KKR, last year, he smashed 47 in their last outing.
