Headstrong Kolkata Knight Riders to lock horns with Mumbai Indians

Perfect weather conditions in Mumbai lay an even perfect opportunity for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to continue their rampant run in this year’s Indian Premier League against Mumbai Indians (MI). After demolishing the Gujarat Lions in their opening game KKR will look to continue their winning spirit here too.

MI has suffered an embarrassing defeat in the opening game of their tournament against Sunrisers Hyderabad and will look to start this game on a positive note. MI will be playing in their backyard and will have the support of their fans.

Mumbai will have a clear and comfortable weather conditions. The temperatures will be in the ideal 27-30 degrees mark. Northerly winds will make the weather pleasant over the region.

But one thing to keep in mind is that the home team, Mumbai Indians, have a stupendous lead over KKR. MI has a 13-5 win-loss record against KKR.

Clear & warm weather in Hyderabad for SRH-GL clash

After a good start to their campaign this year, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will look to continue their winning stride with their second game at home. But, the in-form Gujarat Lions (GL) will do all at their disposal to stop SRH.

Gujarat Lions are in top form when they played their last game against KKR. But KKR played a gem of an innings against them. Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Brendon McCullum will help the GL’s batting line up to put up some good runs. For SRH, Shikhar Dhawan is expected to bat with more freedom, Moises Henriques will pace the innings nicely and star batsman Yuvraj Singh to give some much needed glimpse of classy batting.

Even with the humiliating defeat from Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game, GL will prove to be better stronger team to overcome for confident SRH.

As far as weather is concerned, clear skies will grace the city. But this clear weather condition will allow the temperature to increase over Hyderabad. Warm weather will make the playing conditions a bit difficult for both the teams. The wicket of Rajiv Gandhi Intl. Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad will be very different in day time. It is expected to be flat and good for batting, so a high scoring game can be expected at the venue.
