MI vs KOL: The 22nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will be played between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday, April 16 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
With just one win in three games so far, Mumbai Indians have had a slow start to the tournament. However, they managed to break their losing streak with a victory against Delhi Capitals in their last game. They currently occupy the second last spot on the points table and will be hoping to improve their position.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, have had a somewhat inconsistent run in the tournament so far, winning two and losing two matches. With four points in their account, they currently occupy the fourth spot on the points table. However, their heavy loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last game will have them looking to turn things around and get back on track.
