KKR did manage to reach the playoffs in the 2018 edition of the IPL, but they failed to make the top four in IPL 2019 and that's something they would want to change this season.
The Knight Riders made some big signings such as Eoin Morgan, Pat Cummins among others in the IPL 2020 player auctions, and one can expect these players to come to the fore and contribute to KKR's success.
As for MI, although they lost their opening encounter to the Chennai Super Kings, one can expect them to bounce back and put up a strong challenge today.
Under Rohit Sharma's able guidance, MI will be hoping to learn from their errors they committed in the opening match and pick up a win today.
