KKR vs MI Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the fifth match of IPL 2021.
The fifth match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians in Chennai tomorrow.
Indians, who have started their campaign on a losing note, would be looking to make amends against Knight Riders. The defending champions are highly likely to be confident of an affirmative result primarily because of their stupendous record against KKR.
Another possible boost for MI could be the return of wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock at the top of the order. de Kock, who reached India only last week, had missed the season opener as he was undergoing a mandatory seven-day quarantine period.
Kolkata, who beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs last night to get off the mark in IPL 2021, would want to beat the best team in the competition in order to build a winning streak.
Always quick off the blocks 💪🏽
