Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians Predictions
The Mumbai Indians have a quality outfit and won’t want to lose their opening two matches. They should have the upper hand against a Knight Riders side that have struggled in recent seasons. My best bet is for the Mumbai Indians to win.
- Mumbai Indians have won 4 of their last 5 matches against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
- Mumbai Indians’ Chris Lynn scored 49 runs in his last IPL match.
- Mumbai Indians’ Chris Lynn was the top match run scorer in the last match.
- Kolkata Knight Riders’ Nitish Rana scored 80 runs in his last IPL match.

Kolkata Knight Riders got their 2021 Indian Premier League off to a winning start with a 10-run victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai.

Kolkata Knight Riders Injuries & Team News
It is unlikely that the Knight Riders will tinker too much with their side. Tim Seifert will have to wait a bit longer for his opportunity at the top of the order after Rana’s superb batting performance.
Mumbai Indians Form
The Mumbai Indians started with defeat in the 2021 IPL as they went down by two wickets to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai.
The tournament favourites and defending champions could only muster 159 runs batting first. Chris Lynn top scored with 49 runs.
Jasprit Bumrah kept Mumbai in the game with figures of 2-26 in four overs. They took regular wickets but just didn’t have enough runs on the board as the Challengers got home off the final ball of the match.
Mumbai Indians Injuries & Team News
The Mumbai Indians opted for Chris Lynn at the top of the innings instead of Quinton de Kock. It paid off which may see De Kock spend another game on the sidelines.
The other option will be to drop Marco Jansen but that unsettles the balance of the side quite a bit.
