MI vs KKR IPL Qualifier 2 LIVE score, updates: Weather may hold key in big game
16:10 Odds: Kolkata Knight Riders 9/10, Mumbai Indians 9/10
16:08 Venue watch:
You saw it on Wednesday in the match between Sunrisers and Knight Riders. As expected, the strip at the M Chinnaswamy stadium was not the batting paradise it used to be. Batting first, David Warner and company found runs hard to come by. The defending champions struggled in the Powerplay, managing just 30 runs in six overs, the belligerent Warner scoring only 15 of those from as many deliveries.
After 10 overs Sunrisers were 61 for one, with Warner on 27. In the end, they could only muster a modest 128 for seven in their 20 overs.
Expect a similar track on Friday. And, yes, rain again. The weather could upset all calculations.
16:06 The match will begin at 8pm.
16:04 Mumbai Indians have a second chance to make the final, having suffered a 20-run defeat to Rising Pune Supergiant in Qualifier 1 at the Wankhede stadium on Tuesday.
The winner will take on Rising Pune Supergiant in the final in Hyderabad on Sunday.
16:02 Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders have their task cut out. Having overcome defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets via the Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-truncated Eliminator that finished a little before 1.30 am on Thursday, they need to get their act together to improve their dismal record against Mumbai Indians (5-15) and also avenge the two defeats they suffered in both their league stage matches.
16:00 Good evening and welcome to live coverage of this big IPL game between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The two are playing for a place in the final for Rising Pune Supergiant.
