Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Mumbai Indians (MI)

Mumbai Indians have won the IPL trophy 4 times in the last 7 seasons of the tournament, which says a lot about the team. Thanks to this dominance, they have ended up being the most decorated team of this cash-rich tournament. KKR, on the other hand, has lifted the trophy twice under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir and while the team knows what it takes to win the tournament, their performance has somehow tapered over the last 5 seasons.

Mumbai has won 19 out of 25 matches played against Kolkata and has succeeded in both home and away games. However, in the last season, both teams won the match played at their home grounds. The Rohit Sharma-led side will look to further improve MI’s record against KKR this time around. 

When we look at both the squads, Mumbai certainly looks like a much better team. They have retained most of their key players and kept their core intact, like every other season. With likes of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Quinton de Kock and now Chris Lynn as well, their team looks quite balanced on paper. On the other hand, KKR have made several key changes. They bought Pat Cummins and Eoin Morgan for huge payrolls in the auction. Other key players for KKR are Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russel and the new recruit, Tom Banton. It remains to be seen how Brendon McCullam manages the team and whether he can bring a change in fortunes of KKR.
