MI vs KKR Team Previews:
Mumbai Indians (MI):
Mumbai Indians have been the best team of IPL 2020 so far. His closest competitor so far would be Delhi Capital but he did not even compete. Currently, at the top of the league standings, the focus for MI is now going to be to try and pull ahead of the rest of the pack.
MI has been very consistent with their team selection so far and we do not think this change is going to happen. Rohit Sharma does not like making changes in his team and hence we expect the same team to field in this match as well.
All of MI’s top-orders have now scored in IPL 2020. Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kirron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, and even Krunal Pandya. If anything, we want MI to be a bit more flexible and allow Pollard to come in front of Kishan after the tenth over.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
KKR replaced Tom Banton in the team in place of Sunil Narine and we love openly. This gives him a proper opener, something that Sunil Narayan did not have, and also takes away the pressure of Rahul Tripathi who looked nervous ag ainst the actual pace.
KKR’s batting needs a little work, Shubman Gill is scoring runs in most matches but is not going towards a big score. Their strike-rate may also improve, as they bat at the top of the order.
Nitish Rana and Eoin Morgan also struggled for runs, performing brilliantly at the start of IPL 2020. Dinesh Karthik performed brilliantly against KXIP but did nothing else for a long time and Andre Russell has not left an impact yet in IPL 2020.

It will be hot and dry with temperature fluctuations in Abu Dhabi ranging from 30 to 40 degrees Celsius. Summer will always make it a challenge to play in the UAE and it will be no different tomorrow.
The captain who won the toss would like to bat first, the trend has changed. The pitch will assist batsmen and spinners. Anything around 160–180 can be a winning score.
