Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Betting Tips

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face Mumbai Indians in the match five of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Chennai on Tuesday.

Eoin Morgan-led team will be coming in this match high-on-confidence after beginning their campaign with a rather comfortable 10-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the same venue on Sunday.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping to see the player continue their impressive run and help the team in securing their second victory.

On the other hand, the visiting team in this fixture will be coming to improve their performance compared to the first outing where they suffered a defeat in a nail-biting contest against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Kolkata Knight Riders Form and Team news:

After producing a really solid display in their first game of the competition, the Knight Riders are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI.

However, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who surprisingly bowled just a single over in the match against Sunrisers despite playing as a bowler, might make way for left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the next fixture.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of captain Eoin Morgan, explosive all-rounder Andre Russell and experienced Shakib Al Hasan to score bulk of the runs and put the team in a strong position.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of star pacer Pat Cummins, youngster Prasidh Krishna and spin duo of Kuldeep, Shakib to produce timely breakthroughs.

Mumbai Indians Form and Team news:

Despite losing the first game against RCB on the opening day of the competition, the defending champions are unlikely to make any significant changes as the side produced a solid display.

South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock is very unlikely to take part in this match as well as he would’ve just completed his mandatory seven-day quarantine period leading up to the match.

In the batting department, Mumbai will be relying on the likes of captain Rohit Sharma, Australia’s explosive opening batsman Chris Lynn, young Suryakumar Yadav and explosive all-rounders Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of star pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult along with spin-duo of Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams will be coming in this match with a very contrasting mindset. KKR would’ve been comfortable after opening their account with a win against a tough opposition like Sunrisers Hyderabad whereas Mumbai Indians will be aware of the fact that another defeat on Tuesday will make things difficult going forward.

Looking at the overall squad compositions, it is fair to say that the defending champions look a more formidable unit.

Therefore, the prediction is for Rohit Sharma-led unit to secure a win and open their account in the campaign.

Tip 1: Mumbai’s formidable record against Kolkata in the IPL

However, Mumbai team management and players will be extremely optimistic of producing a positive result against KKR, against whom they have a fantastic record in previous meetings with 21 wins and just six defeats in 27 matches.

In both matches during the previous campaign, it was the Mumbai who came out on top with 49 runs and eight wickets margin. Based on their formidable head-to-head, so we expect Mumbai to continue their winning streak against [email protected].

Tip 2: Rohit Sharma will eye a big innings against Kolkata

In the IPL opener, Rohit Sharma failed to capitalize on his good start and perished for just 19 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Rohit Sharma will take heart from the fact that he holds an excellent record against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. In 21 matches played against Kolkata, Sharma has accumulated 823 runs at an average of 51.44 with one century and six half-centuries to his name.

Given his impressive numbers against Kolkata, we are expecting Rohit Sharma to score 30 runs or [email protected].


Expect Mumbai Indians to beat Kolkata Knight Riders and register their win of the tournament.

  1. Mumbai to continue their winning streak against Kolkata-Mumbai [email protected]
  2. Rohit Sharma to score 30 runs or more against Kolkata-Mumbai [email protected]
