Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Indian Premier League 2022, 56th Match Match Details, Schedule, Summary


Maruti Suzuki ASKcricinfo stat: Which team has the best middle-overs scoring rate in IPL 2022?

7:15pm Daniel Sams: That’s T20 cricket. You’ve got to be ready to bowl whenever the captain or coach wants. We’ve got Jasprit also, so sometimes I bowl at the back and sometimes in the middle. We are seeing the remaining games as a mini-IPL and look to build the team for next year. We’ve got nothing to lose while these teams have something on the line and we’ll look to express ourselves.

Rajesh: “Why no Umesh for KKR? He was a lone shining light picking up wickets in PP” He was out with a calf injury last game and must have not been a 100% today.

MI: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Ishan Kishan (wk), 3 Ramandeep Singh, 4 Tilak Varma, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Tim David, 7 Daniel Sams, 8 M Ashwin, 9 Jasprit Bumrah, 10 Kumar Kartikeya, 11 Riley Meredith

KKR: 1 Ajinkya Rahane, 2 Venkatesh Iyer, 3 Shreyas Iyer (capt), 4 Nitish Rana, 5 Rinku Singh, 6 Sheldon Jackson (wk) 7Andre Russell , 8 Sunil Narine, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Tim Southee, 11 Varun Chakravarthy

So Shivam Mavi, Anukul Roy, Aaron Finch, Baba Indrajith and Harshit Rana are the men out for KKR

Afeef: “Considering what Pat Cummins did in their previous encounter, it makes sense they’re playing 2 of him today ” Haha you caught me there!

Vishwas: “Would’ve agreed with not playing Bumrah if Mumbai had not won the last 2 games. Whole team went through emotional turmoil over the 8 losses. Finally won a couple of games and team looks slightly pleased. They know they can’t qualify so it’s all about having fun. It is important to have key players in the team to rejuvenate their moral and mental health.”

Narendra Ganpul: “मैं रूक रहा हुं रे.. Rohit chimes in to Shreyas after the toss.. Great camaraderie already on display as Mumbai boys fight it out”

7pm It’s toss time! Rohit Sharma spins the coin after hiding it for a while in his pocket, it lands in his favour. Mumbai Indians will field first. “No particular reason, we keep changing what we want to do,” says Rohit. Ramandeep Singh comes in for Surya.

“I am happy to bat first, was looking to do that,” says KKR captain Shreyas Iyer. “We want to put up a good total and give breathing space for the bowlers.” Five changes – Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Sheldon Jackson, Pat Cummins and Varun Chakravarthy come in. We’ll find out who all are out in a while.

6:55pm Pitch report: Graeme Smith says that the surface at the DY Patil Stadium is always a little bit patchy. There’s a decent amount of grass covering but underneath, there is a “very dry, red soil”. He reckons that there’ll be more wear and tear. Spin will play a big role.

Venkat Subraman: “I’ve tuned in to Cricinfo while I wait for my flight to Adelaide (in Singapore). I see the volume of calls increasing for Arjun Tendulkar’s inclusion in the MI playing XI. Don’t think Umran Malik or Sai Sudharsan or any of the other debutants over the years had such vocal support. Pays to be the son of a cricketing icon… yet not sure if these caps should be handed out for those reasons!” Have a safe flight. And these calls also have something to do with the fact that Arjun is yet to be played regularly. Had seen similar calls for Umran last year.

Afeef: “It’s odd that MI have only played one match at the Wankhede this season, but the good news is their last 3 matches are all at the Wankhede. “

Mustafa: “@Fasna: Think about us CSK Fans 🙂 We want MI to beat RR”

6:47pmWell, well! Here’s a big news! Suryakumar Yadav has been ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2022 owing to a left forearm muscle injury. A blow for Mumbai Indians considering how good a touch he has been in.

KD: “Want to see ARJUN TENDULKAR play today. Plssss Mumbai” Not happening today. No new caps were given in the huddle.

Fasna: “With MI already eliminated, it doesn’t make much sense to play Bumrah. He should be rested to help him stay afresh for important England tour, Asia Cup and WT20. “

CricDude: “Hope Sanjay Yadav gets few games in SKY’s absence. He was a great buy and surprised MI hasn’t tried him till now. Markande, Tendulkar also should play and see where they are now that playoff chances are over.”

6:45pm Murugan Ashwin is seen giving the pep talk in the MI team huddle. He had a chat with the broadcaster a while ago: To defend a total on a tricky wicket last game was confidence boosting. With the dew coming in during the chase, it was about picking up wickets, and I tried to keep it simple. Daniel Sams bowled a wonderful last over. I always want to contribute to the team. I worked on my mistakes in the nets and I was happy to do well. We feel that we want to finish this tournament on a strong note.

6:40pm KKR have tried five opening combinations in this season, the most by a side. Will there be another new one today? Meanwhile, here’s Aaron Finch: Has to be an aggressive approach. Can’t sit back and relax especially with our backs against the wall. When your fate is not in your hands completely, you have to be focus on your game than the opposition. As the tournament’s gone on, the scores are coming down as we see spin coming into play. Have to maximise the first six overs and make hay while you can.

“2 Diamond Ducks in last 2 days (Rahul and Williamson), are we up for a hattrick??” Who are you hinting of, Mustafa?

Hemendra: “I knew about struggles and stories of many IPL Players. But this is the first time that I see an active player S.Sudarshan of Gujarat Titans comnenting on the match of other teams in his off time. ” Hahaha, not that I have not commentated in Titans’ games. (Sidenote – he is Sai Sudharsan, I am S Sudarshanan)

6:35pm Should Kieron Pollard be given a break? Is it time to get Pat Cummins back in the XI? Watch Chris Lynn and Ravi Shastri tackle some interesting questions. And if you are making your fantasy side, make sure of capitalizing on Ishan Kishan’s form.

Ishan Kishan chats to the broadcaster: The intent and discipline in the last two games taught us a lot. There’s always pressure at this level and that brings a different excitement. It is important to maintain the processes before the game which I think is important. Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Tim Southee are experienced and Umesh bhai is also bowling well. We’ll look to keep it simple and watch the ball and react.

In the USA, you can watch the action LIVE on ESPN+ in English and in Hindi.
