Talking about the KKR vs MI IPL match today, sitting last after 7 games, the season looked done and dusted for the current champions of the Indian Premier League before they decided that enough was enough. Putting their head into the game, the Indians sorted things out, drafting in some new players to finally find equilibrium between experience and youth in their side for the first time this season. More so big names like the Pandya brothers, Rohit Sharma and Pollard started firing to see them win three games and stoke some fire into their dying embers of a season. Climbing upto fifth with those vital wins, Mumbai will look to do the impossible today. Defeat KKR and they could find themselves in the top 4, a feat almost everyone had written off for them.
KKR will be no walk-over however. Having lost their last match doesn’t mean they’ve become a bad side overnight. With stakes as high for them as well to make the top 4, expect the match to be contested fiercely, with just one mistake probably deciding the outcome.
