Kolkata Knight Riders are starting their IPL 2020 campaign from today. They will face defending champions Mumbai Indians who are injured after losing the opener season to Chennai Super Kings. KKR has worked with the new coaching staff for their coaching and batting for the current season, led by Brendon McCullum, who is set to bring home a third IPL title.
Captain of Kolkata Knight Riders Dinesh Karthik says that he is happy before facing a team of Mumbai Indians calibre but one thing should be on his mind – his team’s great record against MI. In 25 meetings between the two so far, it is Mumbai which has won 19 times while KKR has tasted victory only six times. But MI have made a poor start to the tournament and their fielding, in particular, is on fire.
