In the 5th game of the 14th edition of Vivo IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face the strongest team of IPL and the defending champions Mumbai Indians. This game will play at MA Chidambaram Stadium, which is also famously known as Chepauk ground, on 13th April 2021 Tuesday night.
Though Mi lost the first match of IPL 2021 against RCB but here in this game against KKR, they will try their best to come back stronger. Fans are quite excited to watch this match and expecting a high-intensity game.
Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL champions, did not make a good start to the 2021 season IPL. Surprisingly fans are not disappointed in Mumbai Indians because they know the history, and MI is a slow starter till now in every IPL season.
But this time, they must have prepared well to face Kolkata Knight Riders. Record also says MI always dominants KKR since the first season of IPL. However, KKR is now an excellent mindset after their first win against SRH. They have a very well-balanced team, and Nitish Rana is in excellent form. KKR’s spin attack is outstanding, and they have awesome spinning bowlers like Varun Chakravarthy, Harbhajan Singh, and Shakib Al Hasan.
I hope we can enjoy a perfect match on a pitch like Chepauk between MI and KKR this time.
