TOSS UPDATE - Hyderabad have won the toss and they have elected to BAT first.
Kolkata have all to play for as they have to win this game in order to stand a chance for making it to the playoffs. Their batting has fired in the tournament but it is their bowling which has been a touch inconsistent. Their captain, Eoin Morgan, has been short of runs and that has hampered their batting in the middle overs. Andre Russell getting injured at such a crucial juncture has not helped them either. Will we witness another masterclass from Venkatesh Iyer? Or will Hyderabad spoil Kolkata's party by handing them a defeat? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for toss and further updates.
Hyderabad have had a season to forget as they have failed to announce themselves in the second leg of the Indian T20 League and they are languishing at the bottom of the points table. Kane Williamson and his boys would be playing for pride now and they would be eager to finish on a high. Hyderabad have given chances to some of their young blood at the fag end of the competition in the form of Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg. Kolkata would be wary of the fact that Hyderabad have nothing to lose and they will come out all guns blazing, especially their young domestic Indian players.
Hello folks! A very warm welcome to game number 49 of the Indian T20 League where Kolkata will face Hyderabad. The race for the playoffs is heating up in UAE but this game sees a slightly different scenario as one team is well and truly out of the playoffs race while Kolkata are fighting hard and are ahead in the race, courtesy of a healthy net run rate. Having said that, this one is still a must-win game for Kolkata and they would be looking to give it their all.
