MI vs KKR Dream11 Prediction: Mumbai Indians will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the 51st match of the Indian Premier League 2024 on Friday. The iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host the game at 7:30 PM IST.

Mumbai Indians have disappointed massively this season as they are almost out of the competition already. They sit 9th in the points table with 3 wins and 7 defeats after 10 matches. The five-time champions are on a three-game losing run currently, including a 4-wicket defeat to Lucknow Super Giants in the previous match. Mumbai Indians will look to give themselves an outside chance to stay alive in the competition by winning all of the remaining games.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders have been impressive in the ongoing season. They sit 2nd in the points table with 6 wins and 3 defeats after 9 games. The Knight Riders from Kolkata defeated Delhi Capitals by 7 wickets in their last game and they will be eyeing to get one step closer to the playoffs with another win.

MI vs KKR, Match 51 Pitch Report:

The surface has played really well so far this season. It is a true wicket with an even pace and bounce on offer. It has been a high-scoring venue as the batters could play their shots through the line. However, there will be some help for the pace bowlers as well as they might get some swing with the new ball and there might be some seam movement off the surface too. Furthermore, they could extract some extra bounce to trouble the batters with effort balls.
