Pitch Report and Details

     Typically, the Wankhede Stadium pitch is dry and firm, giving the ball good bounce and carry. The spinners can benefit the most from this since they can utilise the pitch's inherent variances to get turn and bounce. The pitch, however, slows down as the game goes on, making it significantly simpler for the batters to score runs.

Pitch Behaviour

     Batting favour


     On April 16 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders will face each other in the 22nd match of the Indian Premier League 2023 on Sunday. The match begins at 03:30 PM IST.

     MI are now eighth in the standings with one victory from their first three games this season. Whereas KKR won two of its three games to move up to fourth place in the standings with four points. Both teams have strong T20 hitters, so it will be intriguing to see how each skipper makes use of the depth of his respective benches.

     The IPL captain of MI, Rohit Sharma, enjoys playing against KKR, therefore MI will need to pay close attention to how he prepares his innings. MI will have problems in the forthcoming game thanks to the spinning three of Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, and impact player Suyash Sharma from KKR.
