After almost a month and a half of exciting cricket all around, we are now ready to witness the knockout phase of IPL 2014. On Wednesday, Kings XI Punjab will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 1st qualifier of IPL 7 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The match was originally slated to be held on Tuesday, but incessant rain had cancelled it. Catch Live scorecard of the match here.


The good news is that Eden Gardens is basking bright under yellow sunshine. Both the teams have had a remarkable campaign so far, with Punjab finishing as the undisputed No 1 team, and Kolkata came back to win seven matches in a row to finish a close second. Catch the live blog of the match here.


Punjab has ridden on some amazing performances by the likes of Glenn Maxwell, David Miller and Sandeep Sharma. The young guns like Manan Vohra and Wriddhiman Saha have also come to the party. Kolkata have witnessed some fantastic bowling again by Sunil Narine, and some even more amazing batting by Robin Uthappa, who is so far the highest scorer of IPL 7.
