MI Vs KKR - Decider for the second spot on the IPL points table

Earlier today RCB defeated CSK and cemented their top spot in the points table. CSK is currently placed on second spot. But as the title of this post says, MI Vs KKR will be the ultimate decider for 2nd spot.

Lets have a look at the permutation and combination. If KKR wins, they will topple CSK and take 2nd spot because of their better net run rate. If MI has to take the second spot they have to win with big margin because they are lagging behind in net run rate when compared to KKR and CSK. So the road ahead is tougher for MI.

But one thing both the teams don't have to worry about is, both have already qualified to the next round. Its the effort to make it into top 2 as 1st qualifier acts as an easier way to enter finals.

When DC defeated KXIP, MI were confirmed in top 4. MI needs to come out of their three on the trot defeats and display some good cricket here. They have the strength in the form of Sachin Tendulkar, Rayudu, Pollard, Symonds, Harbhajan, etc. Time to capitalise.

KKR is in striking form with Gambhir, Kallis, Tiwary, etc. Bowling is good with Pathan, Shakib-al-Hasan, Abdulla, etc. About the history of these two teams, MI have won 5 and KKR has just managed to win one.

A nice match for this Sunday evening.

Meanwhile IPL 2012 live streaming telecast begins from April 2012.
