Indian T20 League 2024

MUM vs KOL, 51st Match

 

Preview

Mumbai will square off against Kolkata in the 51st match of the Indian T20 League 2024. The game will be hosted at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

If we look deep into the history of their rivalry, Mumbai has dominated every time they come across. Though, defying all odds, Kolkata will step in as the favourites in this game. The Shreyas Iyer-led side has won six of their 9 league matches and are sitting in the second position in the points table. They have stood as a complete side in this season of the Indian T20 League. Their opening duo of Phil Salt and Sunil Narine have been performing at their best. The power-packed pair has been supported by the quickfire innings of Andre Russell, Angrish Raghuvanshi, Rinku Singh and Ramandeep Singh. Kolkata has posted 200+ scores five times in this edition of the game. 

Mumbai have been struggling this season with only three wins in 10 matches. Their bowling side has performed well but their batters have always disappointed so far. They conceded 200-plus scores four times and 250-plus two times, this season. The likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee have done their job well. The Indian pacer is also at the top of the purple cap leaderboard. Yet their valiant efforts didn’t bring much value to the game. Also, their batting arsenal consisting of the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya has been performing far lower than their expected level, this season.
