In the 34th match of IPL 2021, Mumbai Indians will face Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. MI defeated KKR the last time these two teams met this season. 

Mumbai Indians' batting faltered in the last match. None of the top batters could play long apart from Saurabh Tiwary. With Rohit Sharma back at the top in this game, MI's batting will be boosted to the next level. 


The bowling has been Mumbai's strength. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have always remained consistent with the new ball and in the death overs. Rahul Chahar will be the player to watch out for in this match. 

Kolkata Knight Riders' batting wasn't challenged in the last game as its openers Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer finished the job. Gill looked brilliant form and will be the key player at the top. 

Varun Chakravarthy and Andre Russell took three wickets each in the last match to completely throw RCB out of the game. Watch out for Sunil Narine in this game. 

The Rohit Sharma-led side has dominated Kolkata across the seasons. The five-time IPL champions have defeated the two-time IPL winners in 22 out of 28 matches. 

MI v KKR Head-to-Head(H2H):

  • Total – 28
  • Mumbai Indians – 22
  • Kolkata Knight Riders – 6
