Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 champion Mumbai Indians (MI) will play two-time IPL champion, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match 5 of the tournament on April 13 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Head to head: (27 matches: MI 21 | KKR 6)
It is safe to say that the MI, over the years, has enjoyed substantial dominance over KKR as it has won 21 matches out of the 27 it has played with the Kolkata team, as compared to KKR’s six.
Last IPL meeting
In the last five encounters, MI holds a massive lead, winning four matches out of the five. Last season, Mumbai won both of its fixtures against Kolkata.
Both teams faced each other last on Oct 16, 2020, at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. MI (149/2 in 16.5 overs) beat KKR (148/5 in 20 overs) by 8 wickets.
In a match where KKR managed to score just 148 in 20 overs, it was always going to be a difficult day at the office.
