Battle of the big boys: Mumbai take on Kolkata

Oct 16, 2020 18:50 IST

After a 49 run drubbing in their previous encounter in IPL 2020, Kolkata Knight Riders will be looking for revenge as they play Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi on Friday night. The venue remains the same but expect slightly lower scores as the wickets have slowed down at all 3 grounds. Mumbai Indians have appeared to peak earlier than their own standards as they have 5 wins from 7 games. While their batting line up looks confident and set, the bowling department is in desperate need of a good performance. Kolkata Knight Riders have had a good run so far in the IPL with 4 wins from 7 outings and a win will reinforce their chances of making it to the playoffs. All eyes will be on Andre Russell who has had a disappointing tournament so far with 71 runs only from 7 games.
