The dark clouds are looming over Bengaluru. This means, if the match is called off due to rain, Sunrisers Hyderabad, having a point more than Kolkata Knight Riders, will take on Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 2 at the same venue. Gautam Gambhir and co. will be praying to the rain gods to keep the clouds away. However, there is also a possibility of a short contest between the two sides.

The forecast suggests that there will be thunderstorm during the match time, but there is no indication of incessant rain. That said, the fans will be hoping for an action-packed evening, praying along with Kolkata Knight Riders.

Ashish Nehra has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament, while Yuvraj Singh was rested in the previous game due to a sore thumb.
