The Eoin Morgan-led side is coming from a terrific win in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They registered a victory by 10 runs at the same ground after brilliant knocks from Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi and Dinesh Karthik. In their end, their bowlers did a phenomenal job to restrict the opposition despite them having the much-needed firepower in their team. As a result, the Kolkata-based franchise is expected to take the field with the same playing XI.

Mumbai Indians continued with their tradition of losing the inaugural match of every season during this edition as well. Rohit Sharma’s men suffered a nail-biting defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore during the opening match of IPL 2021. However, Quinton de Kock is set to come back to the side after serving his mandatory quarantine period. MI might play Piyush Chawla as well instead of Rahul Chahar to add experience in their spin department.
