The first match of the seventh week of IPL 2022 will see two great teams Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) lock horns at the DY Patil Sports Academy. Both teams occupy the bottom two places in the points table and will hope to improve their position.

Kolkata are having another mixed bag of a season as they got wins on the trot at the start but lost five consecutive games after that. They have not got their opening combination, trying as many as five options and all failed to put up a single 50+ runs stand.

Their retained cricketers, Varun Chakravarthy and Venkatesh Iyer have had an off season so far which sums up KKR’s campaign in IPL 2022. Shreyas Iyer and Co. will have to pull all strings together to win the last couple of games and finish the campaign on a high.

Mumbai, on the other hand, are having the worst campaign that they couldn’t even have imagined in their wildest dreams. Rohit Sharma and Co. lost their first eight games of the tournament, the worst ever in the history of the tournament.

MI have since then won two games on the trot and would be hoping to get a hat-trick of wins on Monday against KKR. Despite the wins, Kieron Pollard’s below-par returns will have the management on their toes as they look to build a squad for the next season.

Pitch Report

Match Prediction

Mumbai have finally found the form and are hitting it at the right time. Kolkata are in much need of a win and if they lose against Mumbai, it might just all be over for them in terms of qualifying for the playoffs.

Hence, KKR will come out all guns blazing and are slightly ahead of MI in terms of coming out victorious. Betway has also placed their odds in favour of Kolkata at 2.10.
