Kolkata, May 11: It has been a contrasting journey in 2024 for Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

While KKR have dethroned Rajasthan Royals (RR) to grab the top spot in the Points Table, on the contrary MI are to blame themselves for only four wins from 12 games. They have already been out of the play-off race as well. But with a couple of games in hand, MI have the ability to pull up a few surprises. 

Can they beat hot favourites KKR at their home turf Eden Gardens, here on Saturday in the 60th match of the IPL 2024? Not impossible> But for die hard KKR supporters, it would be surely a rude shock.

Because MI are positioned on the ninth position of the points table and are already eliminated from the race to playoffs, whereas Kolkata are on the top and will eye the qualification spot with a win today.

Kolkata and Mumbai have faced each other in 33 matches in IPL. Out of these 33 games, Kolkata have won 10 whereas Mumbai have come out victorious on 23 occasions.

KKR v MI head-to-head: 33

Kolkata Knight Riders: 10

Mumbai Indians: 23

Match time: The match starts at 7:30 PM IST (2:00 PM GMT) with the toss taking place half an hour before the match i.e., 7:00 PM (1:30 PM GMT)

Match venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

Live broadcast on television in India: The match will be broadcast live via Star Sports Network.

Live stream in India: The live streaming would be available on JioCinema

Squads:

Mumbai Indians: Hardik Pandya (Captain), Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Naman Dhir, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Nehal Wadheraj, Jasprit Bumrah/Akash Madhwal, Nuwan Thushara, Piyush Chawla.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Phil Salt (wicket-keeper), Sunil Narine, Angkrish Raghuvanshi/Nitish Rana, Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Rinku Singh, Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakravarthy, Harshit Rana.

If KKR win, they would be sure of a play-off berth. But if MI can really stun the Kolkata franchise at their home turf, then that might trigger a few interesting changes in the IPL 2024 Points Table. (With IANS support)
