MI take on KKR

Mumbai: The odds are in favour of Kolkata Knight Riders as they square off against defending champions Mumbai Indians, experiencing a campaign that is oscillating between high and low, in a potentially exciting contest today.

KKR and MI are the two teams that have clinched the honours alternately in the glamorous T20 league over the last four editions. With the form shown thus far in the tournament by the two outfits, the match at the Wankhede Stadium promises to be an engaging battle between two top-notch sides.

KKR are on a roll with four successive victories in five games. Interestingly, their lone defeat of the season, by six wickets, had come at the Eden Gardens against the Rohit Sharma-inspired MI on April 13.

For KKR, it has been a good all-round team display but for Mumbai team, eye again will be on the hitman, captain Rohit Sharma.
