KKR opt to field against Sunrisers in IPL eliminator

20 May 2017, 12:16 | Andy Ferguson

But he needs to pick up wickets at regular intervals like he used to do in past for Sri Lanka and for Mumbai Indians.

Sharma returned with figures of 4-16 to help bowl out Kolkata for 107, with Mumbai achieving the target in 14.3 overs and setting up a title clash with Rising Pune Supergiant. Check out MI vs KKR toss, lineups, live streaming channels and live score updates on this page below.

The Indian Premier League 2017 has reached the final stage, still two more matches to go.

However, the weather is set to play a dampener as there is a possibility of thunderstorm.

The Mumbai Indians skipper, who started off with the Deccan Chargers back in 2008, joined Mumbai Indians in the 2011 auction and since then has gone onto play for the Mumbai franchise. The continuous showers reduced the KKR chase in Eliminator held at the same stadium on Wednesday night to a six over the affair.

Come Friday, MI and KKR will face each other once again with the IPL final spot at stake after suffering contrasting fates in qualifier 1 and eliminator respectively.

Score Board: Who will win the game?

He and other bowlers of KKR restricted the batting powerhouse of SRH for just 128.

In total, Kolkata Knight Riders look a very resolved side and is a top contender for the coveted IPL 2017 trophy. He is not big, doesn't hit big sixes or plays funky shots but Gambhir is now the second highest run scorer (486 runs in 15 matches) and has also led KKR admirably. The skipper has only scored 283 runs in 15 matches at a very low average of 23.58. Narine also has a record of fastest fifty to his name. The think tank was clear about what role each of the players needed to play in achieving success for the team.

Piyush Chawla (2/34) was at the forefront of the early demolition, sending the unsafe Lendl Simmons (3) and Ambati Rayudu (6) back in the hut with a googly and a peach of a delivery respectively which beat Rayudu all ends up. Parthiv Patel of MI has made 377 runs in 14 matches.

The Men in Blue will be tempted to bring in their experienced campaigner Harbhajan Singh as Chinnaswamy track will be on the slower side, assisting spinners. Robin Uthappa did not last long too, holing out to Shikhar Dhawan at deep mid wicket off Chris Jordan's bowling.

Uthappa, though would like to forget the previous match after he scored just one when he was asked to open the innings with Lynn.

KKR, who lost four out of seven matches in the latter half of the season, will have to play out of their skins to make it to the second qualifier.
