Indian Premier League, KKR vs MI: Burj Khalifa Lights in KKR Colors. The clock
Before the match against Mumbai Indians at Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Dubai, Burj Khalifa has been painted in the color of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The tallest building in the world showed a breathtaking LED display and honored KKR with lights in their colors (purple and gold). “Before the fireworks tomorrow, here’s the curtain-ration! We won’t stop in our way at the top with the arrow above. Thank you @BurjKhalifa for the lights in #KKR colors. Welcome to URI tonight.” KKR tweeted.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will face off later today at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Talking about facing Mumbai Indians, KKR captain Dinesh Karthik had said that it is good from their side that they are facing the Rohit Sharma-led team so early in the tournament.
“They (Mumbai Indians) have a team of world class players, they are a strong lineup and the amount of IPL titles shows that it is good that we are playing Mumbai early in the tournament, every year is a different year. “I’m sure it’s going to be a great game tomorrow,” Karthik said during a virtual press conference.
Kolkata has a poor record against Mumbai. The two teams have played 25 matches against each other, of which 19 have been won by Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai.
KKR have also stepped up their lineup apart from England captain Eoin Morgan, Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, USA fast bowler Ali Khan and Australian spinner Chris Green. This side is ranked fifth in the 2019 IPL and now it will have to go everywhere.
