Mumbai Indians have developed a habit of doing so over time. Starting slowly, then picking up speed as the season progresses, and finally pouncing on teams at the conclusion. They’ve had a shaky start this time as well, but in a 10-team pool, the margin for mistake may be narrower. As a result, they must swiftly get up and running. There’s only one issue. They’ll face the runners-up of the IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders, whose fiery approach to batting has added a glittering touch to the season thus far.
KKR enters this match after a convincing win against Punjab Kings in their last match. Andre Russell hit an undefeated 70 off 31 balls to help his team win the game in just 15 overs. In the game, Russell and the KKR bowlers made significant contributions.
