Guwahati: Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be kicking off their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians today.
After failing to make a positive return, Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians will look to secure their first points in the Indian Premier League when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday evening at 7:30 PM (IST).
Since 2013, MI has never won an opening game and the script didn’t change against Chennai Super Kings.
However, winning won’t be that easy especially with Andre Russell in the opposite camp.
The Windies all-rounder will be the key player for KKR and is coming into the tournament after a successful Caribbean Premier League outing.
He will find support from young Shubman Gill and the skipper Dinesh Karthik, who would look to start the campaign on a rousing note.
