Indian T20 League 2023

MUM vs KOL, 22nd Match

 

Preview

KOL and MUM will lock horns in the 22nd game of the Indian T20 League. The Match will be played in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, 16th April 2023, at 03:30 PM IST. MUM is hereafter bashing DEL in their home ground by six wickets, whereas HYD beat KOL in their last game.

MUM managed in their most recent encounter, defeating the DEL by six wickets after losing back-to-back games at the beginning of the season.

Despite the triumph, the five-time Champions will have to put in a lot more effort if they want to be in the top four. The squad got off to a quick start thanks to the opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, who eventually managed to accumulate some runs. However, they will be attempting to outdo themselves here.

At number 3, Tilak Varma has performed well. However, the squad is still concerned about the performance of Surya Kumar Yadav, Tim David, and Cameron Green. These hitters will succeed for a short time against the inferior KOL bowling line-up.

In addition to Riley Meredith, Jason Behrendorff will again head the pace attack after picking up a 3-wicket haul against the DEL. However, MUM's only full-time spinner is Piyush Chawla. Thus they must rely on part-timers like Hrithik Shokeen to step in during the middle overs.

KOL fell to the HYD in a high-scoring game, so that they will be dissatisfied with the result of their most recent match. They suffered greatly due to the failure of their foreign batsmen Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Andre Russell, falling 23 runs short of the mark.

Despite losing, the squad will still learn valuable lessons from the game. Rinku Singh produced a quick-fire half-century to prove that his game-winning inning against the GUJ was no fluke, and Nitesh Rana played a magnificent knock under duress.

Pitch and Weather Report

Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium has a decent pitch for batting. The batters can play their strokes since the boundaries are shorter and bounce consistently. Here, the first-inning average is at around 170. Teams batting first will, however, aim to go close to 200. The pitch has a few green areas that may cause some movement. Dew won't play much of a role in this daytime contest.

Match Prediction

By comparing the two teams, it is clear that KOL can win the forthcoming match versus MUM. While MUM fails to put together a strong bowling effort this year, KOL's bowling assault seems to be in order. Due to their superior batting and bowling depth, KOL is well-positioned to win this match. We think KOL will triumph against MUM.

 

Top Fantasy Picks

In the most recent game, Rohit Sharma came through when his side absolutely needed a captain's innings. On his route to winning Player of the Match, he hit six fours and four fours.

Tim David delivered the essential innings in the finisher's position, striking a six during his 11-ball stay, and won the game by two runs on the last ball.

In his previous two innings, Nitish Rana, the left-handed team captain, has scored 120 runs and smashed 11 boundaries in Sunrisers Hyderabad's loss.

Rinku Singh, a 25 years old middle-order hitter, is quickly emerging as one of the stars of the Indian T20 League 2023. In his previous three innings, he has hit for scores of 46, 48, and 58 without being out.

 

Risky Captaincy Choice

Andre Russell dismissed Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, and Abhishek Sharma despite only being able to deliver 2.1 overs before leaving the pitch due to discomfort. Although he’s out of form with the bat, he needs just one good inning to set the fire in the ground.
