Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders (MI vs KKR) Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the MI vs KKR Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. Kolkata Knight Riders will play for survival against their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in the 56th match of TATA IPL, 2022 on Monday, 9th May 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium. Keep on reading for more information on the MI vs KKR game.

Mumbai has made a comeback like a wounded lion in the last couple of games but it is late for their stake for playoffs. Although Mumbai Indians still have too much to play despite being out of contention. They have found a new finisher in the form of Tim David who is likely to be a long-term replacement for Kieron Pollard in the coming season. 

Other new players are starting to step up like in the last game, Daniel Sams defended 9 runs and won the game from a losing situation. Rohit Sharma also looked in his old groove which makes this clash very exciting.

While their opponents Kolkata Knight Riders are almost out of playoffs and only the official stamp is left after the horrendous loss in the last game. Kolkata started the tournament on a very high note but the constant failure of their top order batters cost them collapses. Instability in their squad also has been a big debate for the failure of the team. Kolkata is not officially out of the playoffs race and would try to go all guns blazing to make a comeback.

Mumbai is out of playoff contention and can also knock out Kolkata Knight Riders if they beat them in this clash. History has heavily favored Mumbai Indians but the last two encounters have been won by Kolkata Knight Riders.

MI vs. KKR Today Match Prediction, IPL 2022, Who Will Win the Match?

MI to win

Mumbai might not have a season to remember so far but the last two matches have given big hope for next season’s foundation. They are coming off two exciting wins and main players like Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan are starting to gain the rhythm. The season is over for them but there is still much to play for and Mumbai will look to finish the season on a high and have some fun by knocking other teams out of the playoff race. We think Mumbai is the favorite for this game and will emerge as the winner.
