Mumbai Indians are placed ninth on the points table heading into this game. They have lost as many as seven games this season and won just three. They lost to LSG in their previous game in Lucknow. Nothing has worked in favour of MI this season. Starting with the change in captaincy to their key batters not in good form. MI collectively as a group has not fared well. For them, the race to the IPL playoffs seems lost even though the five-time winners have five more games to play. However, the Hardik Pandya led side will aim for late resurrection in the season.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders comfortably sit in second place in the standings. The two-time champions will aim to keep their winning run alive and stay in contention for the playoffs. KKR are heading into this game after a convincing win over Delhi Capitals in their last game. In six matches at home this year so far, they have won four and lost two. They have a decent winning momentum and have performed as a unit in the tournament so far. The Shreyas Iyer led team will be hoping all these will continue their good form.
