Mumbai face growing KKR threat | PunterPolls Prediction
Defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders still stand a theoretical chance of making it to the play-offs, and are better placed than some other teams to spoil a party or two. They have made Rajasthan Royals' job tougher after beating them comprehensively at Eden Gardens, and will be a threat to Mumbai Indians, who they face on Tuesday.
Knight Riders may need to win each of their remaining matches to entertain hopes of staying alive; Mumbai could jump to second place should they win, else will feel a little less secure, especially if Rajasthan Royals beat Delhi Daredevils in the afternoon. Mumbai, though, are on a high after inflicting a thrashing on Chennai Super Kings, who, by their own captain's admission, were complacent after seven wins in a row. And in a season where playing at home has played a decisive role, they'll be favourites when they take on Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium.
KKR is under pressure as they have lost the first encounter against the Mumbai Indians at their home ground and now at this stage, they have to win each and every game to stay in the contest. While chasing a target KKR is not a bad team but while batting first they are very inconsistent.
Other hand we talk about Mumbai Indians, every one must be thinking that Mumbai Indians is a strong team especially after their last win against CSK on sunday. But if we analysis the team strength they haven't played according to strength. That was CSK mistake the way they had batted in that game as pitch wasn't that bad.
Looking at the ground records, everyone get confuse as we have seen big score matches and the last one we opposite to what we used to see on the ground. Mumbai Indians for sure is in comfortable condition as compare to KKR but they are under pressure too because of the way other teams ar performing. Its again a kind of must win for Mumbai Indians to stay in the comfort zone.
Our experts believe Kolkata Knight Riders should win this game because of reasons:
- If today the game will be on slow pitch, they have better bowling attack.
- If the game will be on batting pitch where we have seen huge scores, they do have strength to chase and defend the good total.

KKR need to play exceptionally well today to win this contest. MI still need to be tested under pressure. We are expecting this game is going to be tough one for Mumbai Indians.
KKR…. r u sure about dis?
Anything depends on toss???
Mumbai have won the toss and elected to bat
w y think ? who win
Well, I do write what I think. Rest will see howz pitch will play today as we have seen two different matches on last two game played here at Wankhede.
OK. But this time it would b the same pitch as was previous day.
MI has won the last match there and so the curator would certainly provide them the same pitch to boost their Bowling confidence.
My prediction is that Mumbai will win with 29 runs or 6 wickets.
As you say. Rest will see in another few hours.
You are not bang on target as far as figure is concerned. But you predicted right.
