MI vs KKR, Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Match 56
Date and Time: 9th May 2022, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy Stadium, Mumbai
The pitch at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy is slightly on the slower side with batters having to work hard for their runs. While the pacers might not get much swing early on, a change of pace and hitting the hard lengths will be key. The ball should grip a touch off the surface, allowing the spinners to dominate the proceedings in the middle overs. 150-160 should be a good total at the venue, with both teams likely to prefer chasing upon winning the toss.
Today’s MI vs KKR Dream11 match top picks
Ishan Kishan: Ishan Kishan showed signs of form in the previous game, scoring some quick runs at the top of the order. Ishan is one of the most explosive batters in the world with his ability against spin being noteworthy. With the Mumbai Indians' keeper due for a big knock, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Shreyas Iyer: Although Shreyas Iyer has blown hot and cold in IPL 2022, he has managed to score 330 runs so far. The KKR captain has struggled against high-end pace but his knack for scoring big runs in the middle overs should hold him in good stead. With Iyer having a decent record against MI as well, he is a good addition to your MI vs KKR Dream11 fantasy team.
Andre Russell: Andre Russell is perhaps KKR's best performer in IPL 2022, coming up with explosive performances with both the bat and ball. While the KKR all-rounder comes into the game on the back of a good performance against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), Russell will be eager to get his side over the line this time around. With the KKR star likely to play a big role with both the bat and ball, he can be backed to put in a good performance yet again.
Jasprit Bumrah: Jasprit Bumrah hasn't had the best of IPL 2022 campaigns, unable to pick up as many wickets as he would have liked. However, he remains one of the best bowlers in the world, with his effectiveness across all phases of the innings being noteworthy. With the Mumbai Indians pacer slowly getting back to his best, he is a must-have in your MI vs KKR Dream11 fantasy team.
