Jubilant KKR will lock horns against Mumbai Indians tonight in Kolkata at match-5 of the ongoing Vivo IPL 9. Both teams will be playing their second match today, but KKR began their campaign with an emphatic win over Delhi Daredevils while Mumbai had a poor start this season losing to Rising Pune Supergiants in their maiden match.
KKR scripted their 9-wicket win in last match by dismissing Delhi Daredevils for just 98. Then the openers Gautam Gambhir and Robit Uthappa added 69-run stand for the 1st wicket helping KKR register their first win this season.

Mumbai won 11 out of their last 16 matches against Kolkata. Similarly, KKR lost just 1 match in Kolkata in their last 13 outings. It will be a crackling contest anyway.
