As KKR made a win against SUNRISERS HYDERABAD (SRH) in Eliminator by 7 wickets on M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Two-time victor Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Rising Pune Supergiants in the title clash in Hyderabad on Sunday. Check out MI vs KKR toss, lineups, live streaming channels and live score updates on this page below.

However, the weather is set to play a dampener as there is a possibility of thunderstorm. You can expect a very long night today in Bengaluru, thunderstorms are forecasted around 6 PM to 10 PM, a Super Over will decide the victor in case rain denies a full match.

Mumbai Indians (MI) Squad: P Patel, L Simmons, RG Sharma, A Rayudu, K Pollard, K Pandya, H Pandya, K Sharma, M Johnson, L Malinga, J Bumrah.

KKR Coach Jacques Kallis and Captain Gautam Gambhir must be relieved after they eliminated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last fixture that turned out to be a rain-marred affair.

So, because the bowlers are expected to dominate, this Qualifier 2 will come down to the batting - whichever team adapts quicker and finds a way to score quick runs even when the ball isn't coming on will meet RPS in the final. Parthiv Patel though looked in pristine touch as he punished Umesh Yadav for some wayward bowling. He has taken total of 71 catches in IPL. He is not big, doesn't hit big sixes or plays funky shots but Gambhir is now the second highest run scorer (486 runs in 15 matches) and has also led KKR admirably.

Prior to this match, Rohit required 13 runs to touch the landmark. Narine also has a record of fastest fifty to his name.

"Our message was to get the ground as dry as possible so that it is fair to both teams".

Lendl Simmons: The Trinidadian has always performed well for Mumbai Indians. He made 4120 runs in 147 matches with whopping 35 half centuries.

It's quite apparent that Malinga isn't the same bowler and that his role has changed, but it's interesting to note that Mumbai have stuck with him for the playoffs. MI might bring Harbhajan Singh (8 wickets in 11 matches) in place of Karn Singh.

The exaggerated inward angle also did for Robin Uthappa, who has a pronounced tendency to plant his front leg across and play around his front pad. Gambhir and Uthappa held the innings together in most of the league matches. With only a day separating the Qualifier 2, KKR will understandably be more jaded than their opponents, who had played the Qualifier1 on Tuesday.

The usual slow starters peaked to the top of the table winning 10 off their 14 league matches.
