Preview for MI vs KKR MyTeam11 Contest:
Mumbai Indians are firmly in the driving seat as things stand as they’ve lost just two games so far. Mumbai Indians are on a four game winning run and taking on a weakened KKR side, they’ll be the favourites to win the game.
Kolkata Knight Riders endured a really tough time against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous match. AB De Villiers was at his superhuman best at Sharjah and the Bangalore bowling lineup did enough to ensure they’d take all points with them.
Injuries and unavailability:
KKR have to be careful about Sunil Narine and he was dropped in the previous match against RCB.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton De Kock (WK), Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah

MI vs KKR MyTeam11 Teams
Head to Head/Small League
In the small league, the expected playing XI consisting of the best players should be chosen. And as such, assembling the best individuals to ensure maximum quality in all departments will be the right thing to do.
Experimental lineups should be put out for this and since both teams could look to shuffle the pack a little.
Top Picks for MI vs KKR MyTeam11 Contest:
Kieron Pollard: Pollard seems to be at his very best once again. Whenever he’s come on to bat, he’s showed plenty of intent and a lot of firepower. Mumbai Indians need to make sure he sees more deliveries to make a bigger impact!
Jasprit Bumrah: After a little inconsistency, Bumrah looks to be at his best once again. He picked up two scalps and gave away just 18 runs in his four overs. He followed that up with another two wickets against Sunrisers and a four wicket haul against Rajasthan Royals.
Shubman Gill: Shubman Gill has been among the best performers for Kolkata Knight Riders this season. Against Kings XI Punjab, he scored 57 runs and gave his side much needed momentum when other batsmen crumbled.
Prasidh Krishna: Prasidh Krishna was hugely impressive in the game against KXIP. Bowling in the penultimate over, he conceded just 6 runs and took the wickets of Prabhsimran Singh and an in-form KL Rahul to give his side the upper hand in the final over.
Captain Picks for MI vs KKR MyTeam11 Contest:
Captain: Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav
Rohit had scored 80 runs off 54 deliveries when these two sides met earlier in the season at the same venue. Suryakumar Yadav was in his groove in the last game and scored a spectacular half-century against the likes of Ashwin, Nortje and Rabada.
Vice Captains: Jasprit Bumrah and Shubman Gill
Jasprit Bumrah would fancy his chances at the slower wickets of Abu Dhabi and would like to get a few wickets in his bag. Shubman Gill was the only decent prospect for KKR in the previous match!
