The match 47 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 will be going to take place between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Sunday, April 28.
Mumbai are placed second in the table with 14 points from 11 games. Their comprehensive 46-run victory over table-toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday night, helped them inch closer to a last-four berth with three matches remaining.
The Rohit Sharma-led side have been KKR’s nemesis ever since the tournament began, racking up a mammoth 18 wins to KKR’s five in 23 meetings.
Dinesh Karthik’s men lost six games in a row and are all but out of a playoff reckoning. A defeat on the morrow would ensure their early exit. Karthik played a lone hand in their three-wicket loss to Rajasthan Royals here on Thursday with a career-best 97.
