Kolkata, April 28, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST
In the next clash of Indian Premier League 2019, a deflated Kolkata Knight Riders will take on a jubilant Mumbai Indians at their home in the Edens in a quest to stay alive in the competition. Having lost six games on the trot, a win is what the Kolkata Knight Riders need here to remain in the hunt for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians after registering an emphatic win over the reigning champions and the current table-toppers Chennai Super Kings at the Chepauk, have moved to the second spot on the points table and with a win here they will displace CSK from the top and make the number one spot their own territory.
With both teams left with three matches each, the only thing on KKR's radar right now will be to stay strong and win all their remaining games, while for Mumbai, things are looking sorted.
Total – 23
MI – 18
A hint of grass will be offered on the surface which makes the batsmen hit through the line as the ball comes onto the bat pretty nicely. There will be good carry for the seamers
