Indian Premier League, 2019 | Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders PREVIEW

MI vs KKR Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Mumbai, May 05, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST

Kolkata Knight Riders will be looking to secure the fourth spot in the points table when they face Mumbai Indians in the final fixture of the group stage of Vivo IPL 2019.

With 12 points coming off six wins in thirteen encounters, Kolkata Knight Riders are still in contention for the fourth spot. Sunrisers Hyderabad faced a drubbing at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last fixture and if Kolkata Knight Riders manage a win they will directly advance into the playoffs.

A loss for the visitors here now would bring back the consideration of net run rate for the playoffs. In head to head encounters, Mumbai Indians have an upper hand over Kolkata Knight Riders.  So,  can KKR break their jinx against MI  to clinch the final spot in the playoffs?

The clash begins at 08:00 PM IST.

Head to head:

Total – 24

Kolkata Knight Riders -06

Mumbai Indians -18
