Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders - Clash of Biggies

India vs Srilanka live streaming 2012 begins in July.

Spot fixing saga now mildly hits cricket again and this time to IPL but let us hope this great game of cricket stays away from all kind of foul play. Let us hope we keep enjoying pure cricket played in ethical ways and let this game keeps providing us thrillers. Delhi Daredevils beats Kings XI Punjab to ascertain its position in play-offs and thus reducing Punjab's hopes of staying alive in IPL 2012. Punjab still plays against Chennai and once more against Delhi. 

It is time now for Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders which is certainly a play off of biggies. These two teams are now very likely of reaching to the play offs after Delhi. There is still a huge battle out for fourth position between Chennai, Punjab, Bangalore and Rajasthan. Let us see who would be the fourth one to enter the next stage.

Mumbai Indians pulled a surprise win last time against Bangalore where Pollard and Rayudu played brilliantly. Before that Rohit Sharma scored a sparkling ton against Kolkata. So Mumbai has lately regained the winning momentum and that too at the perfect time when we are into the final stages of IPL 2012. Malinga will enjoy home turf to bowl harder and disturb wickets with his unplayable yorkers.

On the other hand Kolkata has receives two blows one against Mumbai and the other against Chennai. So it is an alarming situation for Kolkata to regain the lost form before its too late. They need to give their best before entering the play offs if they have to reach finals or clinch IPL trophy. Gambhir has scored majority of the runs for KKR and once he fails the team looks a bit helpless. Kallis, McCullum or Yusuf have played well in patches but they need to equally contribute runs for the team. Sunil Narine is a gem of a bowler and KKR is lucky to have him. Brett Lee is doing a good job with the ball.

Pitch here at Wankhede may not provide a lot of runs but it will surely provide an even face off between batsmen and the bowlers.
