The Mumbai Indians batsmen are highly talented and can exhilarate big blokes from their bat, they are mixed composure of youngsters and experienced players like Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Malinga in last. The key batsmen will be Suryakumar Yadav depending on his position whether he plays in the middle order or opens the innings.

Knight Riders main striker would be Dinesh Karthik in this match as he is confident to score quick runs as well as play with a defensive technique, also Russell will be in demand to come in and entertain the Wankhede crowd. We predict KKr to hit 5 sixes in their entire innings.
Mumbai Indians:- They can start with De Cock or Evin Lewis who can post 50+ scores on any occasion, also Pollard and Ben Cutting are the all-rounder option the selectors need to select. Bumrah will bet the saviour bowler to turn the match in death overs. Malinga having the experience of 10 years with Wankhede will help the side to lead in the front. Rohit Sharma will aim for another trophy as the trend of alternate year is now for Mumbai Indians.
