The 34th match of IPL 2021 will see defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday (September 23). Mumbai lost the first game of the UAE leg against Chennai Super Kings while KKR pulled off an emphatic win against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
However, MI return to Abu Dhabi – a venue where they registered six wins in eight matches last season. The possible return of skipper Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya would strengthen the MI squad against KKR, a side they have defeated 22 times in 28 IPL encounters.

On the other hand, KKR would be pumped up after a thrilling victory against RCB. Debutant Venkatesh Iyer cashed in on the opportunity and with Andre Russell and Shubman Gill on song, the Knight Riders will fancy their chances against a star-studded Mumbai line-up.
The strategy with two mystery spinners and three pacers has worked well for the franchise and KKR are likely to stick to it.
