Indian T20 League 2024

KOL vs MUM, 60th Match

 

Preview

Kolkata will cross swords with Mumbai for the 60th match of the Indian T20 League 2024. The game is scheduled to be played at the iconic Eden Gardens on Saturday, May 11. 

Kolkata with eight wins out of 11 matches are topping the points table. Also, it is notable to mention that Shreyas Iyer and Co. have managed to win four of their last five matches. 

Mumbai, on the other hand, have played 12 matches and won 4 of them so far. They are placed in the eighth position and have crashed out of the Indian T20 League 2024. Also, they have been facing coordination issues between their batting and bowling sides, which resulted in them losing the last four out of five games. 

In Head-to-head stats, Kolkata and Mumbai have 33 matches out of which the two-time champions have won 10 matches whereas the five-time winners have 23 victories to their name. Iyer and Co have drafted a maximum total of 232 against Mumbai while the Hardik Pandya side has managed a score of 210 as their all-time highest score against Kolkata. 

The last time they cashed was on the 3rd of May this year at the Wankhede Stadium. Venkatesh Iyer’s heroics of 70 off 52 set a target of 170, which the home side failed to chase and were restricted to 145 runs.

This battle would be crazy as Kolkata would try to hold their position at the top of the table whereas Mumbai has nothing to lose and hence will play with no fear.

The iconic Eden Gardens, Kolkata is one of the biggest venues in India with deep boundaries. It provides a flat pitch which allows batters to play their strokes on the go. The pitch will favour fast bowlers in the early stages of the game. Spin bowlers can prove handy during the middle overs and the big boundaries will offer them extra protection to experiment with their lines and lengths.

Match Prediction

Kolkata are presently the league-toppers with 16 points from 11 games and will aim to seal a playoff spot with a victory against the five-time champions. Mumbai, on the other side, has already crashed out of the league. Though Mumbai have always been on the superior side whenever the two teams clashed, this time Kolkata’s form somehow convinced us that they would win the reverse fixture with ease in front of their home crowd.
