Kolkatta Knight riders will take on Royal challengers Bangalore in the first match of the double header at Chinnaswamy Stadium and hope to come back to winning ways after two consecutive defeats.
A will confirm them the playoff berth and a loss wil put them under pressure. The good news for them is Chris Lyn who injured his shoulder during their second match is likely to play and that should certainly give them extra confidence.
But Robin Uttappa is still not totally recovered from his hamstring injury and he might miss today too. If KKR desperately want him they have to take risk.
RCB will try hard to take revenge against them as they were bowled out for IPL lowest score 49 when they met KKR in Kolkata. That am sure will be a consolation win as they are already out of competition.
In the second match at Mohali Kings XI would like to take home advantage as they are still very much in the last phase race.
In yesterday’s matches Sunriresrs Hyderabad lost to Rising Pune Supergaint in a thriller while Delhi Daredevils were crushed by Mumbai Indians at Ferozsakotla. With this win Mumbai is the first team to make it to the playoffs.
