Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will confront each other at the Sheik Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi later today.
Looking at confronting Mumbai Indians, KKR captain Dinesh Karthik had said that it is useful for his side that they are confronting Rohit Sharma-drove side so from the get-go in the competition.
“They (Mumbai Indians) have a group of a-list players, they are a solid arrangement and the measure of IPL titles they have shows that. It’s acceptable that we are playing Mumbai right off the bat in the competition, consistently is an alternate year, I am certain it will be an incredible game tomorrow, Karthik had said during a virtual public interview.
Kolkata has a helpless straight on record against Mumbai. The two groups have played 25 matches against one another, out of which 19 have been won by Rohit Sharma-drove Mumbai.
KKR has reinforced their arrangement with the expansion of England captain Eoin Morgan, Australian pacer Pat Cummins, USA pacer Ali Khan, and Australian spinner Chris Green. The side completed fifth in 2019 IPL and now it is hoping to go as far as possible.
