Watch Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders on YuppTV
The resumption of IPL 2021 gears up for match number 34 in Abu Dhabi, and it’s time to watch the action unfold between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders. After losing their first match against Chennai Super Kings in the UAE leg, Mumbai will face Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday. With Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya expected to be back in the squad, Mumbai will look for a solid comeback to snatch two points today and cement their place in the top four. On the other hand, Kolkata, who had a disappointing first half, is high on confidence after beating Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first match of the second phase IPL 2021.
Yesterday in Dubai, Although luck favored Sunrisers Hyderabad with the toss against dominant Delhi Capitals, their struggle to score not enough runs remains the same even in the second half in the UAE. Batting first, Sunrisers posted a below-par total of 134/9 in 20 overs. Abdul Samad’s 28 is the top score for SRH, and Rashid Khan chipped in with 19 runs down the order. Chasing an inadequate total, Delhi registered an easy win in match 33 on Wednesday to reclaim the top spot on the points table. Capitalizing on the quickfire start provided by Shikhar Dhawan, Delhi batters Shreyas Iyer, and Rishab Pant added an unbeaten 67-run partnership to crush Hyderabad by eight wickets. With this win, Delhi continued to exhibit its dominance and ascended to the top spot on the leaderboard.
David Warner’s inclusion to the team in the absence of Jonny Bairstow did not change SRH fortunes. Delhi bowlers picked up wickets in regular intervals and never allowed SRH batters to free their arms. Anrich Nortje dismissed SRH opener, David Warner, for a duck in the first over, and Kagiso Rabada sent Wriddhiman Saha back to the pavilion in the fourth over. Axar Patel got rid of skipper Kane Williamson and Windies big man Jason Holder. Delhi opener Shikhar Dhawan moved past 400 runs and regained the Orange cap from Punjab skipper KL Rahul. After losing both the openers, Shreyas Iyer and Pant forged an unbeaten 67-run partnership to beat SRH with 13 balls remaining at Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
