History: Mumbai Indians have had the wood over fellow two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders - with 15 wins in 20 encounters. Interestingly, none of those 20 have come in the knockout stages. And this season KKR have lost on both occasions from a position of strength.
On a greasy Wankhede outfield, they failed to defend 59 off the last 23 balls after removing the cream of Mumbai's batting line-up. In their last league game at Eden Gardens, they failed to chase down 25 off the last three overs. The loss cost them a finish in the top two.
