IPL 2020: Mumbai Indians’ predicted XI against Kolkata Knight Riders
Kolkata Knight Riders going to play their first match of the IPL on this Wednesday against the defending champions Mumbai Indians at Shiekh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Mumbai Indians lost their first match against Chennai Super Kings on an opening day and will be eager to win this game as they would have some idea about the conditions on this ground.
Moreover, they lead the head to head records with 19 wins out of 25 which is clear that Mumbai will have the upper hand in the game. Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, didn’t lose any of their opening games since 2013.
Let us take a look at the predicted playing eleven of Mumbai Indians for their game against KKR:
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock
Arguably known as the world’s best opener, Rohit Sharma will open the inning for Mumbai Indians along with Quinton de Kock. The skipper started off the tournament with a boundary against CSK and returned to the pavilion with only 12 runs to his name. He is just 90 runs short to reach the 5000 runs milestone in IPL.
The left-handed batsman from South Africa, Quinton de Kock, gets off to a flying start in the opening game against Chennai. During that match, de Kock scored 33 runs from 20 balls before getting dismissed by Sam Curran in the final over of the powerplay. Let’s see how the wicket-keeper batsman dominates the KKR bowling attack on this Wednesday evening.
