28 April 2016 : The stage is all set for the battle between the underperformers so far in the IPL 2016, The Mumbai Indians and the team who has shown consistency so far, the Kolkata Knight Riders.
KKR’s only loss so far has been to the Mumbai Indians. The Knight Riders secured an amazing win over against Rising Pune Supergiants. The KKR team has recorded some exceptional performances from its players so far.
The main drawback of the Mumbai Indians team has been the constant shuffling in the batting order. Their loss to Gujrat Lions and Delhi Daredevils could have been easily converted to a win, had some blunders been avoided.
The Mumbai Indians team owned by Neeta Ambani can bounce back with this match with the deadly combination of Mitchell McClenaghan and Tim Southee. Parthiv performed well in the last game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP. The only cause of worry is Hardik’s lack of form and Harbhajan Singh’s failure to provide breakthroughs at crucial junctures.
Even after having lost a match to Mumbai Indians, KKR are the current favourites, with exceptional performances from players like Sunil Narine who has significantly improved his bowling action.
Watch out for the action today at 8.00 pm.
