Do or Die battle between KKR and MI

Two of the hot contenders of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians are all set to take on each other to keep their chance alive of winning their third IPL trophy. The match will start at 08:00 PM local time, on Friday.

It is expected that both of the sides will be desperate to win the match, considering the importance of the match as it will be their last opportunity to play the IPL-10 final.

Kolkata Knight Riders will miss one of the key batsmen of their side, Manish Pandey in the big clash as the middle-order batsman was ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) with a side strain.
