*Stats updated till 7 April 2015
MoM: Man of the Match

In the 14 encounters among both these teams, Mumbai Indians have emerged victorious in 10 of those matches whereas Kolkata Knight Riders have managed to win 4 matches. It is clearly seen that the men in blue have dominated the knights but this in the last season KKR won both their matches against MI and took the from 10:2 to 10:4. This season as well they would work upon improving their record against the side led by Rohit Sharma.

On the other hand MI would want to continue the domination and start the new season with a bang. In the 10 matches that MI have won, on 4 occasions Sachin Tendulkar has been the Man of the Match. He wasn’t there with the team in the last season as well and MI lost both matches. But MI would hope to win without the Master Blaster this time around.

Who would win the match this time we will know in the few hours. But who do you think would win the match? KKR or MI?

Can you predict the Man of the Match? Give it a try. Who knows you prediction might come true.
