IPL 2022: Impact Players To Watch Out For In KKR vs MI IPL Match

Best Players For Today's IPL Match - KKR vs MI

By Sahil Mathur April 06, 2022 • 16:24 PM

In the 13th match of the IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Mumbai Indians (RR) at MCA Stadium, Pune. MI have a one-sided dominant record against KKR in the IPL but this season, things might change. 

Let's take a look at the best impact players to watch out for in the KKR vs MI IPL match today:


1) Tilak Verma 

It has been a fantastic start for Tilak Verma in IPL. He has shown great skills while facing both pace and spin. He has a strike rate of close to 150 against ball types he has faced so far. Although the sample is small but Tilak has shown great potential to have a breakthrough season. 

2) Ishan Kishan 

He is the key batter for Mumbai Indians this season. Ishan has the ability to smack the pacers well. The KKR pacers don't have a great record bowling to LHBs and Ishan can take them on any time. 

KKR have two spinners - one wrist spin and another off-break (or so they tell). Against wrist spin, Ishan strikes at 147 and has an average of 24 while facing off-break his strike rate goes down to near 90. 

Ishan Kishan vs KKR spinners will be an interesting battle to watch. If Ishan survives, one can expect a high score from the young wicketkeeper batter.  

3) Sunil Narine 

As we have already established above, Ishan's struggle against off-spin will interest Narine a lot. But Sunil Narine also troubles RHBs a lot - in recent times Narine has dismissed 39 RHBs at an average of 26. His fast off-breaks could trouble a lot of MI batters. 

4) Andre Russell 

The West Indian power-hitter doesn't care about the bowling type. He sees the ball and smacks it. MI's most likely spinner in the playing XI is Murugan Ashwin. Russell hammers leg-spin at a strike rate of 172.22. Against pacers, Russell's SR is near 190.
