Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai
Mumbai will take on Kolkata in the match no. 56 of the Indian T20 League 2022 at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Monday, May 9. Mumbai are out of the race for the playoffs while Kolkata are still hanging in depending on other results.
Former five-time champions Mumbai have had an embarrassing season, winning only two games after their eight straight losses. They are languishing at the bottom of the table with four points. In their last game, Mumbai came out on top in a last-over nail-biter against Gujarat. Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma and Tim David smashed individual 40s to take the total to 177/6. Murugan Ashwin picked 2/29 while Daniel Sams defended just 9 runs off the last over to clinch a five-run victory.
Kolkata blew their chance of direct qualification for the playoffs with a loss in their last game. They have eight points to their credit with four wins in 11 matches. The men in purple and gold suffered a 75-run hammering on Saturday at the hands of Lucknow. Their bowling attack barring Sunil Narine and Andre Russell was taken apart for 176/7. Chasing the target, they suffered an early collapse with four wickets inside seven overs. Russell’s blistering knock of 19-ball 45 wasn’t enough for the side.
The last time these two clashed Kolkata had come out victorious by five wickets earlier this season, with Pat Cummins blasting a fifty.
