The Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians is one of the most hyped IPL matches because of its high-profile owners, Shahrukh Khan and Mukesh Ambani, respectively. While KKR had a winning start this season by comfortably beating Delhi Daredevils in their opening game, Mumbai Indians failed to register a win against new franchise Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS).
