In a race for the final playoffs' spot, the Kolkata Knight Riders hold the edge over their opponents today, but only just. They will be confident considering the crucial contributions by Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine in the last game, but they need more from their senior names, including Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik. A loss today and their campaign could be derailed, at least for a while.

The Kings XI Punjab have four back-to-back wins to show after falling behind for the majority of the season. Two points today will push them up to fourth, where they will replace the Knight Riders courtesy of a better net run rate. They will be boosted further by the return of Mayank Agarwal from injury, as it is now or never for them.
