Things are getting heated up as we enter the third week of IPL 2023. Rajasthan Royals are leading the point table with Lucknow Super Giants following them. On Sunday, Mumbai Indians will be hosting Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium. Both teams are at different tangents of the point table and we are in for an absolute thriller.
Mumbai Indians have finally scored a win in the new season of IPL. They defeated Delhi Capitals in their last fixture. All cricket betting sites have IPL odds on their platform.
With two wins and one loss, KKR are currently in the third spot in the point table. The team has surprised many with their performances in the IPL so far.
It was an absolute thriller when Mumbai Indians came to play against Delhi Capitals and defeated them on the last ball. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan looked in great shape and gave a stable start to the team. Tilak Varma again came to the team’s rescue. Piyush Chawla picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 5.50 and Jason Behrendroff also picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 7.67.
Jofra Archer is expected to make a comeback at Wankhede against KKR.
Predicted Lineup: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Tristan Stubbs, Arshad Khan, Hrithik Shokeen, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff, Jofra Archer
KKR started their IPL 2023 campaign with a loss against PBKS but immediately made a comeback and won two fixtures. However, the primary point of concern was the weak opening order and unstable bowling attack. The bowlers are finding it difficult to break the partnership and the problems should be resolved as early as possible.
KKR will have the same winning combination against Mumbai for the upcoming fixture.
Predicted Lineup: Nitish Rana (c), Mandeep Singh, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Shardul Thakur, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakaravarthy
Both teams are evenly matched. At the beginning of the tournament, MI struggled with their opening partnership but the last game will be a huge boost in their confidence. We predict a win for Mumbai Indians on Sunday against KKR.
