Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders are going to open their campaign in this season of Indian Premier League against defending champions Mumbai Indians.
In 2019 IPL KKR had failed to reach the playoffs after losing six matches in a row. KKR have shored up their squad for the current season with the new coaching staff, led by Brendon McCullum.
KKR and MI both face each other 25 times in IPL where MI won 19 times while KKR has tasted victory just six times. But MI have had a poor start in the opening tournament, and especially their fielding came under fire.
Here is our MI VS KKR Predicted Playing XI;

Rohit Sharma (captain), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile/James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
