The big question at this time is who will meet Rising Pune Supergiant in the final of the 10th VIVO Indian Premier League 2017? The match between the Mumbai Indians and the Kolkata Knight Riders is currently underway, with both teams fairly evenly matched. The game is taking place in the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
The Kolkata Knight Riders are all out for 107. Mitchell Johnson from Mumbai Indians bowled out two players, followed by Jasprit Bumrah taking down three of Kolkata Knight Rider’s team members. Lasith Malinga took down one, and Karn Sharma knocked out the other four.
Although only time will tell who will make it through to the final match, 107 should be a fairly easy total for Mumbai Indians to beat.
Mumbai Indians are currently at the top of the points table, followed by Rising Pune Supergiant. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who were knocked out in the qualifier against Kolkata Knight Riders were third in the points table, with Kolkata Knight Riders in the fourth position. While the match is still taking place, it looks likely that the top two contenders on the points table will be meeting in the final at Hyderabad.
The Mumbai Indians are led by their captain, Rohit Sharma. Other players on tonight’s team are Parthiv Patel, Lendyl Simmons, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Karn Sharma, Mitchell Johnson, Lasith Malinga, and Jasprit Bumrah.
The Kolkata Knight Rider’s team for this match consists of Gautam Gambhir as skipper, Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Ishank Jaggi, Colin de Grandhomme, Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, and Ankit Rajpoot.
On 21st May, either Mumbai Indians or Kolkata Knight Riders will play against Rising Pune Supergiant in the final match of the 2017 IPL in Hyderabad.
