After beating the Delhi Capitals in their last game of IPL 2020, the Mumbai Indians will be keen to keep their winning momentum going when they battle the Kolkata Knight Riders in their eighth fixture of the season.
The Mumbai Indians began their IPL 2020 season with a defeat against the Chennai Super Kings but have recovered from that loss quickly to register five wins from their next six games.
The defending champions had recorded their first win of IPL 2020 versus KKR itself, as the Dinesh Karthik-led outfit looked rusty in their campaign opener.
Like MI however, KKR too have bounced back in no time, beating the likes of Chennai Super Kings, Kings XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020 so far.
KKR will be keen to avenge their loss against MI earlier this season. Here's a look at their head-to-head stats before their reverse fixture in IPL 2020.
