Kolkata Knight Riders against Mumbai Indians
Kolkata Knight Riders, the two-time champions, and Mumbai Indians, the five-time champions, will face off in match no. 56 of the Indian Premier League Season 15. When MI takes against the traditional rivals at Navi Mumbai’s Dr DY Patil Sports Academy on Monday, skipper Rohit Sharma will be aiming for a hat-trick of victories.
Rohit Sharma, the face of Mumbai cricket, will be summoned by Shreyas Iyer, the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders from the historic region of Bengal.
What have they accomplished thus far?
The Maharashtra-based team is in a no-lose position, as their prospects of making the playoffs are dwindling. They won convincingly against the table-topping Gujarat Titans, boosting their confidence for the remainder of the season. The opening combo of Rohit and Kishan is back in form, while the bowling department, particularly Daniel Sams, put up another strong effort, defending 9 runs in the final over of the game.
