Ranchi: May 15, 2013

Kolkata Knight Riders will be hunting for a win that would keep their fading hopes alive in the Indian Premier League (IPL) when they host the Pune Warriors India at Ranchi.

In the previous game on this venue, Kolkata employed their slow bowlers to good effect and troubled the star-studded Royal Challengers Bangalore restricting them to 115 off 20 overs before winning the game by five wickets. The defending champions still have a mathematical chance of qualifying for the knockoffs albeit a slight chance. The qualification rests on a straight forward premise: Kolkata have to win their remaining three matches by a big margin and hope that Bangalore and Sunrisers remain on 16 points.

Pune will expect to end the tournament on a high and be party poopers for Kolkata Knight Riders.
