KKR are coming fresh into this game after their thumping victory against the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Thursday on this very pitch.
KKR might be having a dreadful record against Mumbai Indians at IPL, but they are surely playing sublimely this year. MI have defeated KKR at both home and away matches against the KKR, but Gautam Gambhir knows it very well how to bounce back at the right time. In the first match at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Hardik Pandya hit explosive 29 off 11 balls, while guiding his team to a fantastic win when men-in-blue still needed 60 runs from the last 4 overs.
