KXIP vs MI: The 13th season of Dream11 IPL 2020 will see KL Rahul (KXIP) take on Rohit Sharma (MI) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium In Abu Dhabi Tonight.
The teams have had a similar result in the tournament, that also includes a Super Over- heartbreak.
KXIP lost their opening game against Delhi Capitals (DC), but they managed to win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) before suffering a defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals (RR).
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians lost the season opener against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) but they won the second match defeating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). However, MI encountered their second defeat when they faced RCB.
Let’s take a glance on five players who can have an impression in tonight’s game between KXIP vs MI
With 223 runs under his name, Rahul is currently the Orange Cap-holder of Dream11 IPL 2020. The fashionable right-hander will look to continue his good run of form with the bat and will be keen to steer his side to their second win of the season. After scoring 21 in his first outing against DC, KL Rahul hit a beautiful century against RCB and then scored 69 in the following game against RR. The KXIP skipper will be pivotal to his team’s fortunes once again as they face MI.
Rohit is coming into this game, needing just two runs to finish 5000 IPL runs. He will become only the third cricketer to succeed in that mark. However, the MI skipper will target a way bigger score as his team seeks a winning return. Knowing what he can do with the bat, it’ll be a delight if Rohit can score big with the bat.
Mayank Agarwal, Rahul’s opening partner and good friend, is only 1 run behind his partner in the race for the leading run-scorer. The right-handed batsman has looked in great form right from the first game where he scored 89 against DC. Although he got out cheaply in 20 in the first game against RCB, Mayank notched up his maiden IPL hundred in KXIP’s third game. If he continues to fireside with the bat, KXIP will have an opportunity to secure their win.
The West Indian all-rounder recently played his 150th IPL game. He has been with the MI side since the time he made his debut in the IPL, and like he has done numerous times within the past, Pollard almost pulled MI to the finish line with his unbeaten 60 off 24 balls against RCB. If he puts on a similar show against KXIP, it might increase MI’s chances to register their second win of the IPL 2020.
While KXIP lost in the run-fest against RR, Ravi Bishnoi, despite not taking a wicket, was his side’s standout bowler. The young leg-spinner conceded 34 runs in his 4 overs during a game where fours and sixes were hit aplenty. He may have just played three IPL games so far, but Bishnoi has shown tons of heart.
