IPL: 2nd qualifier to be played between Mumbai Indians and KKR today

They will believe they have what it takes to progress past this hurdle;they have all bases covered, and if they apply themselves well, they should compete. The continuous showers reduced the KKR chase in Eliminator held at the same stadium on Wednesday night to a six over the affair. SRH completed their league match standing on the 3rd position and the KKR completed their league standing on the 4th position.

Yadav had Shikhar Dhawan caught behind in the fifth over after Gambhir put Sunrisers in, but KKR had plenty of cause for concern with Warner - who blasted a 59-ball 126 against KKR in the regular season - and Kane Williamson at the crease. "That's been the hallmark of this team, we're not dependent on one individual".

Who will it be? The fortunes are a bit different for both the side in the knockout stage. Rohit has been inconsistent; every significant score from his willow has followed a single-digit score, and this is the stage for him to get a big score.

Since its debut in 2008 the shorter-format league has evolved into India's most popular sporting event, filling stadiums and attracting TV audiences well beyond that enjoyed by Test and one-day competitions in the cricket-mad country. Pandya though kept his cool and hit the winning boundary to stay unbeaten on 45 off 30 deliveries, in the company of Kieron Pollard.

Mumbai Indians breezed into the final of IPL-10 with a six-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the Qualifier 2, their clinical performance making it look all too easy in the end here tonight. In the return fixture in Kolkata, MI's bench strength came to the fore as Ambati Rayudu and Saurabh Tiwary scored half-centuries in MI's 173-5, and the bowlers then restricted the hosts to 164-8.

2- No. of IPL games Yusuf Pathan has missed since being bought by KKR in 2011. But, they need to win this match first. Rohit has scored 283 runs in 15 matches.

After 10 overs, KKR were tottering at 43/5. Karn Sharma, even in his wildest imagination, would not have dreamt of ending with figures of 4-0-16-4 even had the pitch been a minefield, which it wasn't by any yardstick.

Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will now meet in the playoff on Friday at the same venue with the victor going through to the final against Rising Pune Supergiant on Sunday in Hyderabad.

A fourth Maharashtra derby of the season it is in the IPL 2017 final.
