IPL 2024: Predicting KKR’s Playing XI for their clash against MI

In this article, we will discuss the IPL 2024 Predicting KKR’s Playing XI for their clash against MI. The Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) are comfortably one of the best teams in the league and have more or less fixed their place in the playoffs. They will be facing Mumbai Indians who have already been eliminated from the tournament. They will be looking to win the second encounter as well and make sure they keep their chances at the top even more and win another game at home.

KKR are comfortably one of the best teams in the tournament and they will be the favourites against a struggling MI side. It will be interesting to see what kind of playing XI in this upcoming game. This will be a match where one team will try to stay away from the bottom and the other team will want to stay on top of the table. Let us see who could be the players to feature in the tournament.

Here is the predicted playing XI for KKR:


1. Top order- Philip Salt(wk), Sunil Narine, Angkrish Raghuvanshi

There is no doubt that Philip Salt and Sunil Narine have been the best opening duo in the team. They will be looking to be as aggressive as they have been all season. The young legs of Angkrish Raghuvanshi have also been impressive with some great knocks as well. This has now been one of the most dangerous top orders in the league that we have ever seen.

2. Middle order- Shreyas Iyer(c), Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell

Shreyas Iyer has had a decent tournament so far and has been leading the team from the front. Though Venkatesh Iyer has not been as consistent but has had a great record against this MI side. The assistance of Andre Russell has been an asset for the team not only with the bat but with the ball as well. This middle order without a doubt can create problems for any bowling attack.

3. Lower middle order- Rinku Singh, Ramandeep Singh

Rinku Singh might not be in the form of his life, but can still prove to be effective in the finishing role where we all like to see him. Ramandeep Singh has also played some effective cameos this season, especially in the last game as well. With them at the end, KKR will be happy as they add the necessary depth to the batting order as well. They have enough ability to finish big games in the tournament.

4. Tail enders- Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakravarthy, Harshit Rana

It is good for KKR that Mitchell Starc is finally finding some form in the latter half. Along with him Varun Chakravarthy with his mystery spin and Harshit Rana has been exceptional as well. This has been a bowling attack that has been getting wickets at regular intervals. These three will be the key bowlers in the upcoming encounter as well and will be looking forward to the clash.

Impact- Vaibhav Arora
