KOL vs MUM, Indian T20 League 2022 Match 14, MPL Prediction and Top Picks

Match: Kolkata vs Mumbai, (KOL vs MUM, Match #14)

Date: April 6, 2022 – 7:30 PM IST

Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune 

The match no. 14 of the Indian T20 League 2022 will witness two-time champions Kolkata take on their nemesis Mumbai at the MCA Stadium in Pune. The two teams, who have had contrasting starts to the tournament, will meet on Wednesday, April 6. 

Kolkata have played three matches so far and have won two of those. Shreyas Iyer’s men kicked off the season with a six-wicket victory over Chennai but lost their next fixture against Bangalore by three wickets. In the third game, Kolkata defeated Punjab by six wickets. Bowling first, they restricted Punjab to just 137 on the back of Umesh Yadav’s four-fer. Kolkata were reduced to 4 for 51 while chasing the target but Andre Russell’s brutal 31-ball 70* took them over the line. 

The former five-time champions Mumbai are yet to get in the points, having lost both their games – by four wickets against Delhi and by 23 runs against Rajasthan. In the previous fixture, Mumbai conceded 193/8 despite a late comeback that saw Jasprit Bumrah finish with 3 for 17. Chasing the target, they looked on course for majority of the innings, with Tilak Varma scoring 61 off 33 and Ishan Kishan adding 54. But their power-hitters couldn’t get the job done in the last six overs.
