Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Betting Tips 23/09/2021

Teams Status

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians started the UAE leg with a defeat as they saw Chennai Super Kings take revenge of the defeat they had inflicted on them prior to the Covid hiatus.

The defending champions were tasked with chasing down a modest target of 157 but they could muster up just 136 as several of their batsmen got starts but none capitalised, with the sole exception being Saurabh Tiwary whose unbeaten 50 off 40 did not find much support.

To be fair to them, they were missing Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya, both of whom are not certainties to feature in this game either.

Mumbai bowlers, earlier in the match, had had an exquisite start, reducing CSK to 24-4 before a resurgence led by Ruturaj Gaikwad allowed them a way back in. The defeat aside, there is still no need to ring alarm bells just yet.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR’s start to the UAE leg could not have been better and more dominant. On Monday night, they thrashed Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore by nine wickets and soared to third on the points table.

The architects of their lop-sided win were their bowlers, but especially Varun Chakravarthy, whose 3-13 broke the back of RCB batting unit.

With the target so small, the chase was never going to be a problem and it wasn’t, not even for debutant Venkatesh Iyer, who contributed an unbeaten 41.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Kolkata Knight Riders to win @ 2.20

Mumbai are wobbly right now, as they quite often are at the start — or restart in this case — of events. They could again be without Sharma and Pandya, which gives KKR the opportunity to avenge their April 13 defeat. The play here is to back KKR to win @ odds of 2.20 with 22Bet.

Tip: Top batsman for Mumbai Indians – Quinton de Kock @ 3.74

In the absence of Sharma, the responsibility will fall on the shoulders of Quinton de Kock to provide an impetus from up front. He is quite capable of doing so. The play here is to back the South African to be Mumbai’s highest scorer in this match at odds of 3.74 with 22Bet.

Conclusion

Mumbai have registered four straight wins over Kolkata. We think revenge is in order right about now.
