Eoin Morgan also chipped in with over 400 valuable runs for his side. Varun Chakravarthy was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament for KKR with 17 wickets in just 13 matches.

Despite taking the match into the last over, Mumbai lost the match by two wickets. Chris Lynn and Suryakumar Yadav were in some good knick with the bat. Apart from these two, no other players chipped in. Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up two wickets for just 26 runs. Even the debutant Marco Jansen had a great outing as he also picked up two wickets. They will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways. They had a brilliant last season as they finished at the top of the table with 18 points from 14 matches. First, they beat Delhi Capitals in the 1st Qualifier and then again went on to beat the Capitals in the final. Ishan Kishan was exceptional last season and was the team’s leading run-scorer last season with 516 runs from just 14 matches.

Tipster’s Angel

These two teams have produced some mouth-watering clashes over the years and this is expected to be nothing less than that. By considering the recent head to head record, Mumbai have an edge over the Knight Riders. 

Tip: Suryakumar Yadav Total Runs Over 22.5 @ 1.83

Suryakumar Yadav was brilliant in his debut series against England as he scored a massive half-century on debut. He was one of the main reasons they finished at the top of the table as he had scored 480 runs at an average of 40.00 in 16 matches. He had crossed the 22 run mark in eight of the 15 innings that he played last season in the IPL and he got the India call up courtesy of this brilliant performance. He has played six matches against the Knight Riders and has scored 224 runs at an average of 44.80 and striking at an impressive strike rate touching 150. Surya scored an impressive 31 runs in the season opener against the Royal Challengers from Bangalore. He has impressed everyone with his batting, so it is very likely that Suryakumar Yadav will score over 22.5 runs at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: Nitish Rana Total Runs Over 20.5 @ 1.83

Nitish Rana played a blinder against the Sunrisers from Hyderabad in their opening match at the Chepauk. He scored 80 runs off just 56 balls which included nine fours and four sixes. He scored 352 runs at an average of 25.14 including three half centuries and striking at 138.58. In the last season, he crossed the 20 run mark in seven of the 14 innings that he had played. In the last ten matches that he has played in the IPL, he has scored 293 runs at an average of 29.30. He has played five innings against the Mumbai Indians and has scored 107 runs at an average of 21.40 with a best score of 31 against them. He played two innings against Mumbai last season and scored 29 runs. He crossed the 20 run mark once. So, it is very likely that Nitish Rana will score over 20.5 at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


Mumbai are more likely to bounce back from their loss in the opening match. They have the strongest team in the IPL this season as well and could make it three trophies in a row. KKR on the other hand will be looking to go at the top of the table with a win.
