MUMBAI INDIANS TEAM NEWS & PLAYING XI
MI’s are officially out of the tournament with only 2 wins in 10 matches. MI, the last team on the points table beat the first team (GT) on the points table. Interesting comeback from the 5-time champions. T David and D Brewis has been excellent so far this season for MI who has played some brilliant knocks in a limited number of chances they’ve got and proved that they’re worth the name. D Sams defended 9 runs in the final over wherein he just conceded 3 runs against the likes of GT’s best batsman D Miller and R Tewatia, what an amazing bowling by him under pressure. Meanwhile, R Sharma completed 200 sixes for the franchise. The next 4 matches of MI are against the tough opponents and one of them being the El Classicò, it will be interesting to see how they sign off the tournament this year. MI needs that bowling depth which they had earlier and if they can work on this for the next 4 matches they can pretty much win at least 2 matches out of 4 and make a good mark this year.
Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Surya Kumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, Tim David, Kieron Pollard / Dewald Brewis, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Kumar Kartikeya, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith.
KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS TEAM NEWS & PLAYING XI
After losing to LSG for 75 runs, KKR’s hopes for Playoffs are all dashed out but even if they win their remaining 3 matches it might not be sufficient because in this case they reach a maximum of 14 points and with 3 teams locked in at 10 points each and 3 other teams above that mark, 14 points will not be enough to qualify. An A+ performance from KKR for their next matches too wouldn’t suffice. KKR in spite of trying different players at the opening slot none of them have been able to play like they should and have failed miserably which has costed the team a lot then they would have thought. T Southee has been brilliant asset for the team this year and has performed above the mark in all the games he has played so far for KKR. In the match against LSG, T Southee’s final over looked like- 1,1,1,W,1B,W. S Narine completed 1000 runs in IPL and also took 151 IPL wickets yet went in vain as he couldn’t help the team in winning matches. Also, KKR this season have been bowled out thrice which is most by them in a single season which shows they too have had a struggling year along with MI and CSK. KKR in spite of having big names in the squad they found it difficult to lead from the front and moreover the openers have been a disappointment too. U Yadav didn’t play against LSG due to a niggle and not sure about his playing status for the next match too.
Playing XI: Aaron Finch, Baba Indrajit / Ajinkya Rahane / Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Ankul Roy, Andre Rusell, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Shivam Mavi, Harshit Rana.
