Mumbai Indians will be desperate to register their first victory of IPL 2022.


Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians will square off against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 14th match of IPL 2022 in Pune. Suryakumar Yadav might come back into the side after recovering from his thumb injury. On the other hand, Aussie Test skipper Pat Cummins is back in the Knights camp and might well play his first game of IPL 15 against MI. MI are languishing down in the points table with no wins in 2 matches while KKR comfortably occupies the second spot. After a disappointing loss against RCB, Iyer and his troops came back in style courtesy of a Umesh-Russell show. As the rivals clash in a mega showdown, fans will hope for a thriller on Wednesday.

KKR vs MI: Head to Head

The rivalry between KKR and MI is one of IPL’s most celebrated showdowns of all time. Two of IPL’s most successful champions locking horns has always resulted in a cracker of a contest. However, MI have mostly thumped KKR in their past meetings. In 29 matches, KKR have won only on 7 occasions while MI has had the upper hand in the remaining 22 games. In IPL 2021, both the teams shared the spoils in the 2 matches in the league stage.

KKR vs MI Dream 11 Top Picks

Umesh Yadav

Umesh Yadav has seemed to turn the tide for KKR with the ball in the powerplay. The seasoned campaigner despite going unsold in the 1st round of auction, has hit back at his critics with his fiery bowling spells. Currently having the purple cap with him, Yadav will be Shreyas Iyer’s trump card against the MI heavyweights.

Ishan Kishan

MI’s batting woes hurt their chances in the first 2 matches but their biggest highlight has been their swashbuckling southpaw Ishan Kishan. With two back-to-back fifties, Kishan seems to stand tall to the team management’s expectations even in crunch situations of the game. The flamboyant wicket-keeper batter will be upbeat to keep up with his blistering form and convert his knocks into matchwinning ones.

Sunil Narine

From a lethal mystery spinner to a big-hitter with the bat, Narine has always played a pivotal role in KKR’s journey in IPL since 2011. The Caribbean all-rounder can be KKR’s gamechanger against MI’s struggling batting outfit. With the bat as well, Narine can smash a few in the stands turning tables over in a flash.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

MI have always been slow starters but since the IPL is now a bigger affair with 10 teams, the 5 times champions need to get back on track after 2 successive defeats. IPL 2021 runners-up KKR have been on a rollercoaster so far with 2 wins and 1 defeat in their first 3 matches. Recent performances do give KKR an edge, but the odds might turn out in favor of MI in Pune.
