Mumbai Indians will meet the Kolkata Knight Riders in Eden Gardens for their last league match. It is going to be a do or die match for the Kolkata Knight Riders while for Mumbai Indians, it would be a chance to finish on the top before going to the playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders' chance for qualifying for the playoffs depends on Sunrisers Hyderabad final match. If SRH beat RCB in the last match, KKR might find themselves in trouble because Hyderabad possesses a better run-rate. But if SRH loses the match against RCB, a win against Mumbai Indians would take the Kolkata Knight Riders to the playoffs.

We perform as a team: Rohit Sharma

“It feels great to qualify for the playoffs with one game left. We have done well in the pressure situations and this has made a difference,” said Rohit Sharma after beating SRH in the Super Over.
