KKR vs MI Match Prediction: The Sportsrush presents before you the Match Prediction of 47th match of IPL 2019.
The mighty Mumbai Indians taking on KKR. There looks to be only one possible outcome from the second of Sunday’s match no matter how hard we try to work around the combinations. Having made the second position their own after putting down the Chennai Super Kings in a runaway win by 49 runs, Indians go into their encounter against KKR as the rim side expected to bring home the two points.
It’s been a wondrous season for Mumbai, one in which they’ve emerge as one of the most complete team from the tournament. Be it in the batting or bowling department, they are a unit that posses a spectacular skill set which when paired with the expansive expertise at their disposal has resulted in an outstanding department.
On the other hand, KKR couldn’t have had a more torrid time in the league. They’ve been hammered and toyed with, made a mockery time and time again to sit in sixth place.
DC vs RCB – What numbers suggest?
As we head into match 47 of the league, the numbers are what make for a resounding read. In the 23 matches the two have played till in date, the Indians have a massive 18 wins in their kitty, making it the most one sided match ever in the Indian Premier League. The 5 wins for KKR look unlikely to go up when these two meet yet again in what will be their first match of the season.
All-smiles as we move to Kolkata for our last away game of the League phase!

DC vs RCB – Key battles
Sunil Narine vs Rohit Sharma
With the pace department an abysmal one, KKR will have to rely on their spinners to bring in early wickets for them. Rohit who scored his first half-century of the tournament the last time MI faced off against CSK, the only performance in an otherwise dismal batting show by his side will be looking to repeat that performance.
He does have problems against spin though and KKR will look to deploy Narine in the powerplay overs against him.
Andre Russell vs Jasprit Bumrah
Russell likes hitting the ball to the fence in the closing stages of the match and in Bumrah, MI have the perfect answer to him. In recent times, the Indian spearhead has become the most dependable bowler in the closing stages in the world.
His vast versatility sees him keep mixing up his deliveries to use the bouncers and slower balls to fruition. He’ll be up to the task of restricting Russell and this should be an encounter that Bumrah gets on the top of.
DC vs RCB – Match Prediction
Given the two sides current form, it’s hard to see any other winner than the Mumbai Indians. They’re just too heavy an outfit, one in which players love taking the onus on themselves and shouldering the brunt of the responsibility to deliver a match winning performance. On a surface that will support them as well, we fully expect MI to win this comfortably.
