Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns with Mumbai Indians in the fifth IPL 2021 match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on 13th April.

The match between the two is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST. Star Sports will broadcast the match on TV, and the cricket live streaming of the game will also be available on the Disney+ Hotstar VIP app.

Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians, 5th Match

Mumbai Indians are all set to take on KKR in their second IPL 2021 match on Tuesday. For Mumbai Indians, the duo of Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock, who have consistently given good starts to MI in recent years, will open the innings. Following Rohit and the South African wicket-keeper will be the duo of Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. While Suryakumar has been a consistent performer for the Mumbai-based franchise since IPL 2018, Ishan Kishan had his breakthrough last year where he aggregated 516 runs. Following them will be the power-hitters Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya. When it comes to bowling, the duo of Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah will be leading the pace bowling attack.

After failing to qualify for the playoffs in IPL 2020, Kolkata Knight Riders will be keen to display a better show in the 14th edition of the league. Shubham Gill, who was the highest run-getter for KKR in IPL 2020 with 440 runs in 14 matches, will be the apt choice for the opener’s role for KKR. Nitish Rana has come out as a strong batsman for the Kolkata-based franchise and will open alongside Gill. Dinesh Karthik has exhibited great performances in the lower-middle order position and will be a good option for the wicketkeeper’s role. With Shakib al-Hasan being an excellent all-rounder to look upon, KKR’s bowling unit comprises the likes of Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine, and Kamlesh Nagarkoti.
