IPL Qualifier 2, MI vs KKR: Five things you need to know

While the second qualifying match of the Indian Premier League 2017 arrives, we look at the M Chinnaswamy stadium to match the Mumbai Indians playing Kolkata Knight Riders. The Mumbai Indians here after losing by 20 races in the surge of supergiant riders Pune and Kolkata Knight headed here for a win over defending champion Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 winters. This camp belongs equally to the Indians of Mumbai. In 20 games between the two games in 10 seasons, Mumbai won 15 games 20 against KKR. And this season, the record is in favour of MI Rohit Sharma. KKR lost both games in a reasonably strong position. At Wankhede, KKR was unable to defend 59 of 23 balls with Nitish Rana Hardik Pandya producing excellent shots. And more recently in his last home league game, KKR has failed to push 25 3 off and lost windows in a heap. This also allowed them to finish fourth – against the second, they were destined to win. The land of Bangalore has been reinstalled and races do not work this season. The best of this season has been 161 races of Pune supergiant even Wednesday SSR has struggled to get races on the surface. This is where things fall on the lap of KKR. They have an understanding of how the bowling alley behaved, when – and they did quite well – and then in the limited time in the middle, they also had threshing time. Both captains have a different style of approaching a game, behaving in a game and reacting to difficult situations. While Rohit behaves rather quietly and composed in difficult and urgent situations, Gambhir has developed over time an aggressive side that sets him apart from the rest and perhaps a good omen for the side and his push for an end point. With the bat, Gambhir has been a boost for the side and is second in the orange cap ranking with 486 runs in 15 games. Rohit, by contrast, has 283 runs in as many games.
