Kolkata Knight Riders hopes of qualification hang by a thread. Their fate now depends on Sunrisers Hyderabad, who face already knocked out Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday. If SRH lose and Kolkata win their last league game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) against Mumbai Indians on Sunday at the Wankhede Stadium, then it s the two-time champions who will just sneak in.

KKR registered a memorable seven-wicket victory against Kings XI Punjab on Friday that came on the back of an impressive knock by Shubman Gill, who ensured his side kept their Playoff hopes alive till the last league game.

Placed fourth, SRH have a net run-rate of +0.653, which is comparatively better than fifth placed KKR’s +0.173. In case, SRH lose to RCB, it will be like a quarter-final for KKR as a win will do the job.

Mumbai will want to continue with their winning momentum. A win and a better run-rate than table toppers Chennai Super Kings and third placed Delhi Capitals will give them two shots for the summit clash. (ALSO READ: Dinesh Karthik reveals what was said during his animated team talk against KXIP)
