Over 17 | Score 178/2 | Gambhir 62, Bravo 0

Such an easy run chase it has been for KKR or rather Gambhir and Uthappa have made it look like one. The latter's brilliant innings, however, comes to an end but he has done enough to help his side sail past Pune.

Gautam Gambhir pips Hashim Amla to become IPL 10's orange cap holder. Uthappa, meanwhile, has smashed Tahir for two back to back sixes and that too big ones. If there were enough runs on the board, Robin might have got a hundred today.

New Delhi: Welcome to the live cricket updates of IPL Match 30 between Rising Pune Supergiant and Kolkata Knight Riders.

After a rain-soaked evening washed away the Indian Premier League Match 29 between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunriers Hyderabad, we now have two of the most in-form teams – Rising Pune Supergiant and Kolkata Knight Riders go head to head at the MCA stadium.

Going into the clash, Pune franchise will confident after their morale-boosting win over Mumbai Indians (MI) on Monday, while the Knight Riders would be blazing following their absolute dominance against Royal Challengers Bangalore, who posted the worst team total (49-all out) in IPL history in the match.

RPS arguably produced one of their best performances in the previous match, after they pulled off a thrilling three-run win over MI, courtesy a man-of-the-mach worthy performance form the season's top buy Ben Stokes.

Kolkata, who have an inspiring captain in the form of Gautam Gambhir at the helm, have been pretty consistent with their performances thus far and will be slight favourites heading into the tie.

Against the Supergiant, Knight Riders will be without Nathan Coulter-Nile, who in their previous game aginst the Royal Challengers took three wickets as Gambhir looks to manage workload over his team.

Likely playing XIs:-

Rising Pune Supergiant: Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith (captain), Ben Stokes, MS Dhoni (wk), Manoj Tiwary, Dan Christian, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir, Jaydev Unadkat

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa (wk), Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Suryakumar Yadav, Colin de Grandhomme, Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Yadav
