The Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to welcome Mumbai Indians at the iconic Eden Gardens in the 47th fixture of IPL 2019

The hosts will be desperate to get back to winning ways, while the Blue Army would be eyeing the top spot in the IPL points table with another win. As we head into the business end of the tournament, these two teams will face each other twice in the space of three days.

Kolkata Knight Riders have had a topsy-turvy campaign so far, to say the least. Having started their season on a high, the hosts have lost six consecutive matches.

Dinesh Karthik played an impressive unbeaten knock of 97 against Rajasthan Royals in their previous game. However, his heroics went in vain as the Royals clinched a last-over victory. KKR are lying precariously at the sixth spot in the points table with four wins and seven defeats, and all their remaining games are must-win games for them.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians have been one of the most consistent sides this tournament. With seven wins in their 11 league fixtures, the Blue Army are sitting comfortably at the second spot in the points table.

Rohit Sharma (67) and Lasith Malinga (4-37) came to the party against CSK to beat the defending champions by 46 runs in their last encounter. Many believe Mumbai Indians have the potential to go all the way this season and clinch their fourth IPL title.
