Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 56 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai on Monday.
The five-time champions have been officially eliminated from the playoffs race to become the first team of the fifteenth season to miss out. The Rohit Sharma-led side has only won two games out of 10 matches and will now play for their pride in the remaining fixtures.
Similarly, the Knight Riders are also struggling badly, losing seven out of 11 matches to be positioned at the eighth spot. Though KKR are still in the playoffs race, it would be really difficult for them to stay in the fight due to their poor net run rate.
The track at the DY Patil Stadium offers good support to both batters and the bowlers. The dew factor will again have a say in the choices made by the captain.
