Watch KKR vs MI IPL 2016 match live streaming and score on HotStar and live telecast on Sony Six HD network.

Mumbai Indians were completely outplayed by Rising Pune SuperGiants in the opening match of IPL 2016. MI were bowled out at a low total which was hard to be defended. SuperGiants chased the total comfortably leaving behind disappointment for the home team. 

Mumbai Indians' player Shreyas Gopal agreed that MI performance against SuperGiants was below par and they need to bounce back against KKR. While winning and losing is a part of the game, the team is looking forward to take up a challenge at the Eden Gardens and play to the best of their ability.

Overall the Mumbai Indians are a strong outfit. Not to forget they won the IPL title last year. Rohit Sharma, Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard, Corey Anderson, Harbhajan Singh and many more to name make MI a strong side. The side is definitely missing the services of Lasith Malinga but if the batting line up provides a good score, the current bowling line up can defend decent totals.

KKR would enjoy the home ground and crowd support. They are difficult to beat in their own backyard. They have match winners like Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell, Shakib al Hasan, etc. The pitch at Kolkata is tailor made for spinners. If the batting line up clicks and puts up a good total, the KKR spinners can feast on the Mumbai batsmen. 

Dew factor would play an important role. The captain who wins the toss may opt to bowl first and then chase down the total.
