Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be kicking off their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians. The Rohit Sharma-led team lost its first game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the tournament opener by five wickets. All the overseas players in the KKR squad are available for selection with their quarantine period coming to an end. For MI, it is not yet confirmed whether Nathan Coulter-Nile has recovered from his injury. However, James Pattinson bowled well in the opening game and MI may look to continue with him even if Coulter-Nile is fit to take the field.
