IPL 2021 : KKR vs MI
IPL 2021: Nitish Rana scored a half-century for KKR in their first match.

IPL 2021: Kolkata Knight Riders won their IPL season opener against Sunrisers Hyderabad, and will now take on defending champions Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.

In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs in their season and will add their winning start when they take on defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI). The Royal Challengers lost to Bangalore and would return on the way to victory. There was a clinical performance by KKR on Sunday against SRH as batsmen Nitish Rana (80 for 56), Rahul Tripathi (53 for 29), and Dinesh Karthik (22 for 9) batted first and bowled the bowlers. SRH followed closely.

Here is to see the matches against Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.

Nitish Rana

Rana, playing the role of the perfect anchor in KKR’s innings, saw a top-order promotion. With 9 fours and 4 sixes, Rana’s knock put KKR’s innings together and formed a crucial partnership with Rahul Tripathi and Dinesh Karthik. A tough left-handed batsman, Rana can also play aggressively at the top of the order as his strike rate of 135.96 suggests.

Dinesh Karthik

The former KKR skipper played the perfect finishing role for the team in the last match, smashing 22 off 9 balls with two fours and a six. Karthik has taken the finisher’s role for KKR over the past few seasons after being a middle-order batsman for a significant part of his IPL career. His T20I strike rate of 143.53 is better than his IPL strike rate of 129.99 and a move towards finishing the innings will help improve on that IPL record.

Pat Cummins

Cummins’ 12 wickets in 14 matches last season had fallen short of expectations, but a world-class bowler like this Australian could not be kept quiet for long. His return for 1 of 30 from 4 overs in KKR’s first match was the most economical among all bowlers, and with his raw speed as a weapon, Cummins can take the pitch out of the equation and give the batsmen a mistake. Can hurry to do.
