Dream 11 Indian Premier League is providing the much-needed relief to the cricket lovers. Although sports lovers can’t experience the same in the stadiums, they have been glued to their TV screens. After losing a match to Chennai Super Kings in their first game, Mumbai Indians gear up to play against Kolkata Knight Riders in the fifth match.
Winning the game is the utmost priority for both teams. Team KKR wants to begin their journey for this season with a victory while Team MI intends to win the game at any cost. Team MI will certainly have pressure as they lost the first game. Kolkata Knight Riders look confident under Dinesh Karthik’s leadership.
Chris Lynn, one of the critical players of Kolkata Knight Riders in the last season, is not a part of the team anymore. The team banks on Dinesh Karthik, Nitish Rana, and Shubman Gill for batting. Tom Banton from England Cricket Team is an addition to the team. Andrew Russell and Sunil Narine are playing consistently for the team, and they could be dangerous for the opponents. Kuldeep, Pat Cummins, and Narine will handle the bowling department. The team looks strong, with a balance of batsmen and bowlers.
On the other side, Mumbai Indians might not make any changes to the team. They performed well in the first match and could repeat the same time. This time, they are determined to hit the bull’s eye.
The venue for this game is Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The match begins at 7.30 PM IST.
