The Knight Riders have a strong bowling line-up, but make no mistake, the Mumbai Indians are no pushovers.

With all at stake battle, the least both Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will worry about the pitch.

History: Mumbai Indians have had the wood over fellow two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders - with 15 wins in 20 encounters. Rohit has been brilliant with both bat and as captain for his franchise. However, if rain derails proceedings and there is no match, then MI will move to the final as they have finished on top of the points table following the conclusion of league stage. On that front, Rohit Sharma's team would definitely have an advantage over Gambhir's men. So this momentum is enough for him to take charge and get his team into the finals.

Mitchell Johnson (2-28) and Lasith Malinga (1-24) then wrapped up the innings quickly. Mumbai may only win if they improve with bat.

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. He couldn't contribute in the match against RPS.

Mumbai's batting has been remarkable this season with openers Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel giving them good starts and skipper Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayadu and Kieron Pollard firing in unison. As an all rounder Pollard should justify his selection otherwise he might fail to be part the team any more.

Gautam Gambhir: In a nutshell, he is the pillar of KKR batting line-up.

Kolkata has been one of the few teams who stuck to a core side and dint chop or change too much all through the season. Gauti scored valuable unbeaten 32 runs and single handedly carried off the rain-truncated match. Now he should aim to repeat such performance and win the match against Mumbai Indians.

It took the generally explosive Warner eight overs to hit the first six of the match, punishing a poor Piyush Chawla ball by rocking on to his backfoot and pulling the leg-spinner to deep midwicket. Sunil Narine, 2. Chris Lynn, 3.

KKR's bowling will spin around Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine. "So it is important to pick up wickets at regular intervals", Chawla said. In the next four overs, Suryakumar and Jaggi sought to stem the rout, scoring 40 runs before their stand was broken by the excellent Karn, taking the prized scalp of Jaggi.
