KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for MI vs. KKR Today Match Prediction, 34th Match, IPL 2021 Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians lost the last match from a gripping position which will be tough to take given they got a big early advantage in that match. They are now up against their favorite opponent Kolkata Knight Riders who have been beaten by MI in the last 4 games. Rohit Sharma missed the last match but is likely to return to the lineup which will be a huge relief and advantage for the defending champions. 

Last year Mumbai completely dominated in UAE conditions and in the first match also, they were threatening from ball one but their batting was very disappointing. Teams like Rajasthan Royals are starting to climb up in the table so it is an alarming signal for Mumbai Indians to not take matches lightly.

  • Form Guide- L-W-W-L-L
  • Mumbai Indians have won last 4 matches out of last 5 encounters against Kolkata Knight Riders
  • MI defeated KKR both times in UAE last season.
  • Rohit Sharma has scored most runs against Kolkata Knight Riders in the history.

Top Batsmen so far in IPL 2021 

  • Rohit Sharma- 250 runs at 128.20 strike rate
  • Suryakumar Yadav- 176 runs at 138.58 strike rate  
  • Kieron Pollard- 183 runs at 163.39 strike rate    

Top Bowlers so far in IPL 2021

  • Rahul Chahar- 11 wickets at 20.36 average 
  • Jasprit Bumrah- 8 wickets at 28.12 average 
  • Trent Boult- 10 wickets at 25.80 average 

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders completely crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore in every department in the last match and started their campaign in UAE with a bang. Bowling was outstanding in the first match and again on Abu Dhabi pitch, they would fancy their chances to again produce a collective performance to bundle out the star-studded lineup of Mumbai Indians. 

Although Kolkata Knight Riders don’t have a good record against Mumbai Indians but if Kolkata continues to perform like this then they could become the team to beat in 2nd half of the season with the return of Gill and the rise of young players like Iyer and Prasidh.

  • Form Guide- W-L-W-L-L
  • Varun Chakravarthy has picked 14 wickets in the last 10 matches.
  • Nitish Rana has scored 288 runs in the last 10 innings and scored 57 runs in the last match against MI.

Top Batsmen so far in IPL 2021

  • Nitish Rana- 201 runs at 122.56 strike rate
  • Dinesh Karthik– 123 runs at 138.20 strike rate    
  • Shubman Gill- 180 runs at 123.28 strike rate 

Top Bowlers so far in IPL 2021

  • Prasidh Krishna- 9 wickets at 29.66 average 
  • Varun Chakravarthy- 10 wickets at 23.20 average 
  • Andre Russell- 10 wickets at 12.30 average

Weather Report

The temperature will be around 33 degrees with low wind speed. Dew is likely to come in 2nd innings which can become a deciding factor. In the match between RCB and KKR also, dew came very early which made the chase really easy for Knight Riders and even Kohli was surprised to see so much dew. 

  • Rain: 0%
  • Humidity 53%
  • Wind speed: 11 km/h.
  • Temperature- 33 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

Abu Dhabi pitch was very two-paced in the first innings of the match between RCB and KKR and spinners of Knight Riders were all over the Banglore batsman. Pitch is likely to perform better in this match and when dew kicks in then they might be a beautiful wicket to bat on. The average score will be around 160 and the captain will look to bowl first after winning the toss.

MI vs KKR– Who will win Today IPL Match, Today Match Prediction:

Mumbai Indians is expected to win the match against Kolkata Knight Riders 

KhelTalk experts feel that Mumbai Indians will win against Kolkata Knight Riders in this encounter. Mumbai Indians lost the first match but they were without their two premier players, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya who are an integral part of their setup.

Mumbai has a terrific record against Kolkata Knight Riders and last year they only lost 2 matches at Abu Dhabi. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders also showed a dominating performance in the last match but still, their batting looks weak and strongly depends on Gill and Nitish Rana. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Top Batsman from Mumbai Indians – Suryakumar Yadav (3.75 odds) 

Suryakumar Yadav has had a very silent IPL campaign so far and has not been able to score big scores as he did in the last few seasons. He has played some eye-catching 30s, 40s but couldn’t convert them into a big score. In the last meeting against Kolkata Knight Riders, he scored a beautiful fifty and his record against Kolkata Knight Riders is strong. Kolkata’s strength is in spinners and Surya plays spin beautifully so it would be a nice contest to see. Suryakumar Yadav can give you big returns from this match and is our pick for best batsman from Mumbai Indians.

Top Batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders – Shubman Gill (3.60 odds)

Shubman Gill looked back to his best in the last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. He scored 48 runs and looked in supreme touch. Gill was in terrible form last time around in India but recent rest from the Indian team surely has given Gill to sort out his technical issues. He has received criticism for his slow strike rate in the past but this time around, he has revamped his game and looks to put pressure on bowlers. He is our pick for best batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders.

Top Bowler from Kolkata Knight Riders– Varun Chakravarthy (3.75 odds)

Varun Chakravarthy has become a big force to reckon with in IPL. He again picked 3 wickets in the last match and was the architect behind Royal Challengers Bangalore’s middle-order collapse. Batsman struggled to rotate strike against him and mounting pressure gave wickets to him. Varun Chakravarthy is a mystery spinner but he has more than one mysterious ball which makes him a tough contender to score against. Varun can again give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best bowler from Kolkata Knight Riders.

Top Bowler from Mumbai Indians– Jasprit Bumrah (3.75 odds) 

Jasprit Bumrah picked two wickets in the last match but was a bit expensive compared to his standards. Although he was incredible in early overs but leaked runs at the end. Abu Dhabi pitch will be tailor-made for him and his slinging action cutters could be a big headache for Knight Riders. Jasprit is also good with the new ball but is likely to come one change as Adam Milne was outstanding with the new ball in the first match. Jasprit Bumrah is a mandatory pick and is likely to give you good returns from this match.
