Win is all they need! It is good for the fighting teams to not look at calculations. They need to just go out there and win the remaining matches.

Mumbai Indians are fighting for survival and to stay in contention they need to win today. Watch MI vs KKR live streaming on Star Sports and HotStar.

Eyes would be set on Rohit Sharma to click today and win the match for his team. Last time when he played against KKR, he hammered 98 runs from 65 balls. A lot is expected from Pollard and Harbhajan as well.
For KKR, Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa are capable enough to provide a flying start. The spin trio of Narine, Hogg and Chawla have provided wins to the team. Andre Russell is a great all rounder in the team that they can boast of.
