Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians – Match Preview

It’s no surprise to see that Mumbai have dominated the previous clashes between these two teams.

MI have claimed nine wins out of the last 11 clashes.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Wednesday, 23 September 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: History suggests there is no advantage for batting first or second at this ground, though it will be worth considering how the first matches have gone. Expect the spinners to have some joy on the dry track.

Weather conditions: We can expect another scorching day in Abu Dhabi. No chance of rain and temperatures hovering just below 40 degrees celsius and only a moderate breeze.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians – Latest Odds

Bodog India are one of the best betting sites in India and have the Mumbai Indians priced as favourites at 1.77 despite their recent defeat to the Chennai Super Kings.

That’s due to their dominant record over the Kolkata Knight Riders, who are offered at 2.0.


Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians – Team News

It will be interesting to see if Mumbai are prompted to make changes to their XI after defeat to Chennai.

They will again have to continue to pose a threat without star man Lasith Malinga. He is missing this year’s IPL and has been replaced by Australian James Pattinson.

Rohit Sharma has confirmed he’ll keep opening the batting with Quinton de Kock. That leaves Chris Lynn on the sidelines.

Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya are Kolkata’s first-choice spinners for now.

Kieron Pollard heads into the IPL in fine form after starring with both bat and ball in the CPL.

Kolkata have exciting young England prospect Tom Banton to support a likely opening duo of Sunil Narine and Shubman Gill. Gill is likely to get more time at the top of the order following the departures of Lynn and Robin Uthappa.

England captain Eoin Morgan adds his experience and Pat Cummins and Andre Russell give them a fearsome middle-order.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians – Betting Tips and Prediction

If you are looking for more than one cricket betting tip for this match, we have a few more that could help you.

Our predictions are based on the best odds available on betting sites in India and the form of the players in the tournament so far.

Bet on LBW to Be the First Method of Dismissal

Here’s an early outcome to a bet for you. When left-armers are approaching right-handers or spinners are bowling wicket to wicket, lbw really comes into play.

We’ve seen it happen in the IPL 2020 already, when Trent Boult got rid of Shane Watson in the tournament opener. 10CRIC have lbw priced at 7.0 to be the first method of dismissal.

Back Gill to Be Top Batsman and Kuldeep Top Bowler

The IPL 2020 is full of international stars, but plenty of Indian talent forms the backbone of the XIs, too.

Shubman Gill and Kuldeep Yadav are to solid local players. Gill should get some time at the top of the KKR order, while Yadav is “at the top of his game”, according to team mentor David Hussey.

They are both in 22Bet’s combination bet. Gill and Yadav are priced at 11.0 to be the top batsman and bowler in the match, not just for Kolkata.

Take a Long Shot on a Century to Be Scored

Some online cricket betting sites in Indian rupees are offering a century to be scored at a price as low as 7.5. CampoBet are prepared to go as high as 8.71 for this, though.

It’s a long shot, but not unlikely. We backed this to happen in the CPL 2020 and it happened. There are plenty of great batsmen able to make this happen in Abu Dhabi.
