Watch the live stream of Kolkata Knights Riders vs Royal Challengers in the 2013 IPL.
Where: JSCA International Cricket Stadium
When: 10.30 BST
There is still a slim chance of Kolkata Knight Riders qualifying for the play-offs in the 2013 IPL, but they will have to beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by a significant margin.
It has been a disappointing season for KKR and despite beating tournament whipping boys Pune Warriors India in their last match they are unlikely to defend their title from 2012.
It’s quite the fall from grace for the Knight Riders who claimed their first IPL title last season, only to lose eight of their opening 13 matches this time around.
Batsmen Gautam Gambhir, Eoin Morgan and Jacques Kallis showed promise with the bat but have failed to reach the standards that are expected of them.
Mystery spinner Sunil Narine has played well all season but despite his best efforts the franchise are probably heading out.
As expected the Royal Challengers have been competing near the top all season, although they will have to be careful that Sunrisers Hyderabad don’t sneak into the play-offs ahead of them.
Their batsmen have not struggled for form and the quality of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers should see them over the line – although a win against Kolkata would obviously ease matters.
