Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles' cricket tips for Wednesday's IPL match include a winner, team sixes and individual fours.
KKR v MI betting odds and tips:
Kolkata Knight Riders to win
Kolkata begin their tournament against defending champions Mumbai, who lost by five wickets to Chennai in Saturday’s opener.
The Indians were disappointing in that defeat – particularly their bowling attack – and Kolkata have a full contingent of international stars available for selection.
With Pat Cummins, Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan among those ready to play, the Knight Riders have a great chance of inflicting a second successive defeat on Mumbai.
Kolkata Knight Riders to hit over 5.5 sixes
Russell or Morgan could account for this on their own, with the former smashing 52 sixes during last year’s tournament.
It seems likely, then, that Kolkata should manage at least six maximums across their 20 overs on Wednesday.
Shubman Gill to score over 21.5 runs
Gill is one of the most exciting prospects in world cricket, and the 2020 IPL feels like it could be his breakout party.
The 21-year-old averages 33.26 after two seasons in the IPL, and is set to feature at the top of the order this year for Kolkata.
Rohit Sharma to hit over 2.5 fours
The Mumbai captain limped to just 12 before holing out on Saturday, but still managed to find the boundary twice in that innings.
Another underwhelming performance is unlikely from the destructive opener, with three fours looking well within reach.
