Mumbai Indians (MI) will host the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 51st game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The MI vs KKR clash will take place at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, on May 03, 2024.

Mumbai will come into the game on the back of their three defeats in a row, with the last being against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by four wickets. The ‘blue brigade’ began the 17th season almost in the same fashion as they faced three consecutive losses to find themselves in trouble.

Their successive victories against Delhi Capitals (DC) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) gave a little hope for their progress, but they keep on showing inconsistent performance. Their only other win in this IPL 2024, going into the MI vs KKR clash, came against Punjab Kings (PBKS) by nine runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had a sweet beginning in this competition. Three wins in successive encounters put them at the top of the table before they faced their maiden defeats in this season against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Even though they came back in the winning ways against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), the Rajasthan Royals got the better of the two-time champions in the very next game.

KKR held their nerve in the afternoon game against RCB for the one-run victory, before Jonny Bairstow’s exceptional century blew them for the eight-wicket defeat. They will go into the MI vs KKR clash on the back of their last victory against DC by a comfortable seven-wicket margin.
