The Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on the winless Mumbai Indians of Rohit Sharma in Match 14 of IPL 2022. The contest is set to be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Wednesday.
After three matches, KKR are at the second position in the points table while MI are at eighth. The Knight Riders have won all the matches they’ve played at the MCA stadium, but the head-to-head IPL record favours Mumbai Paltan.
Played: 29 | KKR won: 07 | MI won: 22
The Pune pitch has been very kind to the bowlers in the second innings as the last two matches played here resulted in teams batting first winning the match. However, going by the trend, the skipper winning the toss will look to field first.
