Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders would look to bury the ghosts of their heavy defeat of the season as they face a resurgent Rising Pune Supergiant on Wednesday, in their bid to make the IPL play-offs.
While KKR suffered their heaviest defeat of the season against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game, Pune looked to have found their mojo in the business end of the tournament having registered consecutive wins in their last two matches.
Looking unstoppable with a hat-trick of wins and enjoying a two-point lead over Mumbai Indians, KKR's winning streak was stopped by Sunrisers.
KKR will now be under pressure to secure the magic number 16 and seal their place in the knock-out stage after Mumbai became the first team to secure a play-off berth.
Pune, on the other hand, are on the ascent from the bottom-half of the table and now find themselves placed securely in top four with a four-point lead over fifth-placed Kings XI Punjab.
