Despite having some of the best T20 cricketers in the squad like Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, KKR failed to qualify for the play-offs last season.
The Kolkata team spent a lot of money to strengthen their bowling department by buying Australia’s Pat Cummings for Rs 15.5 crore.
For the Mumbai Indians, the tournament opener’s defeat against Chennai Super Kings would have hampered their confidence to go into the game against a balanced KKR side.
The Rohit Sharma-led team has a poor record in the United Arab Emirates, having lost six matches in as many matches.
The past winners will be hoping to turn their fortunes quickly and return to victory.
On the other hand, KKR will improve their overall record against Mumbai.
Kolkata have two IPL titles to their name, but when faced with Mumbai, KKR have won just six of the 25 games in the IPL.
