Mumbai Indians have had a forgettable campaign in IPL 2022 and can now only finish on a high. They will look to win all the games they play.

MI are currently tenth in the points table after 10 games with 4 points.

Mumbai batters are in some form and they must show it when it matters to win two points. Bowling wise they have the bowlers to do the job and they must do it.

MI have won their games against RR & GT. They have lost to DC, RR, KKR, RCB, PBKS, LSG (2) & CSK.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders too have had a forgettable campaign and they will look to end the campaign winning games of cricket.

KKR are currently ninth in the points table after 11 games with 8 points.

Kolkata’s batting was a problem in their last game and they will hope to avoid such mishaps. Bowling wise too they look a bit thin and must outperform the onlooker’s thought.

KKR have won their games against CSK, PBKS, MI & RR. They have lost to RCB, DC (2), SRH, RR, GT & LSG.

In terms of the head to head, Mumbai are way ahead having won 22 games compared to KKR’s 8 out of the 30 played.

For the wicket, batsman will be aided and good bowlers reaping rewards.
