KKR have a horrible record against Mumbai Indians -- only six wins in 20 matches in IPL. KKR have done very little this season to suggest that Dinesh Karthik's team has the capability to beat Rohit Sharma's all-round Mumbai Indians. KKR have a mid-table position with four wins from seven matches but with a negative run-rate. Some of the wins were 'gifts'. But it is unlikely MI will lower their guard against KKR.
In the first leg-encounter in Abu Dhabi, Mumbai Indians rode a 54-ball 80 by Rohit Sharma that exposed the weaknesses in the KKR attack. Then MI bowlers defended their 195 runs quite easily with Trent Boult, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar picking two wickets each. Except Dinesh Karthik's 30 off 23 balls, none of the top batsmen came good. Balance has been KKR's greatest problem in this tournament. Watch MI vs KKR live.
