MI vs KKR, IPL 2021
It’s time for game 34, which sets Mumbai and Kolkata against each other. The former is in fourth place in the points table with eight points, while Kolkata is in sixth place with six points. In the first game of the second leg, Mumbai was unable to cross the finish line against Chennai, which was not the start they had hoped for. Due to the injury to Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard was named as the stand-in captain. Mumbai has a lot of depth in their team, so perhaps they can get their guys to click again before it’s too late. Coming into this game, they’ll be aiming to score some crucial points.
Kolkata, on the other hand, did not have a terrific first leg, but the way they played against Bangalore in their last game must have transformed the attitude in their camp totally. Venkatesh Iyer, a rising star, played a key role at the top, assisting Shubman Gill in chasing down the 93-run target in a short time. In the last game, their bowlers were equally brilliant, with Andre Russell and Varun Chakravarthy each taking three wickets. Kolkata would be hungry to take two points from the defending champions and knock them out of the top four. This game looks like it’ll be a blast to watch.
