Kolkata v Mumbai, IPL 2011, KolkataPrice Makes Debut as Mumbai Bowl Against KKR22-May-2011 14:26:00 GMT
Kolkata: Mumbai Indians captain Sachin Tendulkar won the toss and chose to bowl against Kolkata Knight Riders in their IPL match at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.
This match is also a battle for the second qualification spot as the final-four have been identified.
The winner of this match will have a very good chance of grabbing the second spot, which may be decided on NRR.
Knight Riders' skipper Gautam Gambhir will be a touch confident because his side's NRR (+0.476) is far superior to MI's (+0.033).
Going by the current form of both teams, the Knights will definitely start favourites against the Mumbai Indians, whose armour seems to have developed several chinks.
Their strong batting line-up has failed to deliver in the last three games, and their bowling, including the deadly Lasith Malinga, will be low on confidence after taking a pounding from Rajasthan Royals opener Shane Watson on Friday.
