In Match 5 of IPL 2021, Eoin Morgan's Kolkata Knight Riders will face the defending champions Mumbai Indians. Rohit's paltan lost their first game of the season against RCB on the last ball of the match, whereas KKR have started their tournament with a thumping win against SunRisers Hyderabad.
Mumbai Indians have a well-balanced side. Despite of losing the first game, they are not expected to make a lot of changes in the side. However, with Quinton de Kock available for selection, the management would have to choose between him and Chris Lynn. Lynn made a handy 49 in the first game against RCB.
The Knight Riders from Kolkata would look to carry their winning momentum forward after delivering an impressive performance against SRH. Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi looked in great touch. Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell would be trusted to go bonkers in the final few overs.
