KKR have a new captain in Shreyas Iyer who has led the team from the front so far. However, he would like to get consistent with the bat.  The KKR vs MI game will be the toughest test for Shreyas Iyer as Kolkata Knight Riders captain in IPL 2022.

On the other end is Rohit Sharma who has scored over 1000 runs against KKR and knows the side inside out. He is the only batsman to score over 100 runs against the Knights who have not found an answer to MI’s domination over the years.

The Knights found a way to win in their last match courtesy of an Andre Russell special. He came back to form at the right time for his side after they were reduced to 51/5 chasing 138 to win. Despite the win, KKR has concerns in their dugout with their openers and the middle-order. Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer after giving a good start in the first game have fallen apart in the next two games. However, it is due to the KKR bowlers that the team has fought through and found a way to win.

Mumbai Indians like always have made a bad start to their IPL campaign. They have lost both their opening games and now brace themselves to face KKR. Mumbai has some key players missing from their squad who are now playing for other teams in the tournament. Ishan Kishan though in form has not found support from the other end. The absence of Suryakumar Yadav has also not helped the team’s cause. He is expected to be back for the clash against KKR.
