And the M. Chinnaswamy stadium will witness today a clash to make their way towards the semifinal, where they will meet the Mumbai Paltan who lost against RPS yesterday and waiting for the second chance to grab it
As we all know SRH and KKR came up 3rd and 4th in the point’s radar which means any of these two teams need to win 2 matches to enter into the final stage to compete against RPS in the Grand Finale of the IPL
Sense of excitement is roaring in the sky as the league is going to its final stage and the supports are very much enthusiastic to cheer up for their favorite and make sure they win the title
History: KKR have won seven of their 11 matches against the defending champions. So, statistically, they will appear to have a strong grip on the match up. Except, two of Sunrisers' victories have been last season's eliminator and the most-recent clash between the two sides in Hyderabad.

What they said:
"We're fully aware of the challenges that teams have faced here in Bangalore. Last year when we played the final here, if we didn't get 200 plus, we weren't in the contest. This year if you get 150-160, you're very much in the contest. So you need to adapt, the way you play."
– Tom Moody on the different challenges of playing on the relaid Chinnaswamy surface.
"We have to pull up our socks. It does not matter whether we are in the play-offs or not. If we have to win the tournament we will have to bat sensibly."
– A livid Gautam Gambhir called for an improved batting show after KKR fell short in a gettable run-chase against Mumbai Indians.
