Mumbai Indians, currently sitting at second spot, would look to consolidate their position on the IPL 2019 points table when they square off against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.
Mumbai Indians presented their title contendership with a crushing win over Chennai at their backyard, although the hosts were not full-strength. Indeed, they boast plenty of match-winners in the ranks to go the distance.
Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders are in shambles. They started brightly but the last two weeks have been quite tough for the franchise. They come here with six defeats on the bounce and must turnaround to save their fledgeling campaign.
