THE LOWDOWN

MUMBAI INDIANS

  • Mumbai Indians’ play-off hopes are fast fading away after they fell to a third defeat in succession on Tuesday, meaning the five-time IPL champions have still won just three league games all season.
  • Failing to get enough runs on the board proved Mumbai’s downfall against Lucknow Super Giants, with their bowlers unable to defend 144/7 despite their best efforts, the hosts eventually going down by four wickets.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS

  • Kolkata Knight Riders again showed their mettle by being able to jump back up after being knocked down, this time beating Delhi Capitals three days since losing by eight wickets to Punjab Kings.
  • The brilliant form of opener Phil Salt continued as the England international scored 68 from 33 balls to help Kolkata reach their 154-run target against Delhi with three overs and three balls to spare.

THE PREDICTION

It goes without saying that Mumbai Indians won’t give up in regards to potentially making the play-offs. However, their form has dropped off a cliff at the worst possible time and their top order are simply not making enough runs as a collective unit. The bowling attack besides ace Jasprit Bumrah is weak and could well be picked apart by Kolkata Knight Riders. With victory crucial in KKR’s bid to maintain their place in the top two, back them to triumph at the Wankhede Stadium.

TIP: KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS TO WIN
