Comparison

  • MI batsmen have been in good nick- are likely to hit a low.
  • MI has strong all rounders and terrific pace attack supported by spinners.
  • KingsXI are average in bowling- pace and spin.
  • KingsXI batsmen will come good and tackle opponent bowlers well in first 8 overs and then open up. This will be their only strategy to pile up a huge score if they bat first.
  • In case MI bat first, they may find their batsmen failing against consistent swinging by opposing pacers.
  • Overall, MI appears a stronger team on papers. However, today is a day for KingsXI batsmen to sparkle.

Advantage

Team bowling first will have an advantage. But, anything can happen in a T20 game. Freak performances can change the tide of the game.
