TOSS: Kolkata have won the toss and elected to bat first.

Team news: Ricky Ponting is not playing today. In his absence Rohit Sharma will captain Mumbai Indians.

RAIN UPDATE: The rain has stopped. The toss has been scheduled for 8:00 pm (IST). Hopefully the game will start by 8:30 pm (IST). It was raining forcing the covers on the ground earlier but now the latest news is that they have been taken off and the match will start - not on time but has been delayed by around 30 minutes.

Relegated to the bottom half after four defeats, defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders must raise their game as they face another struggling giant Mumbai Indians in second of their three back-to-back home fixtures in the sixth Pepsi IPL here on Wednesday.

Both the teams find themselves on the same side of the fence having lost their last two matches respectively. But a cracker of contest is on offer especially given that it would be Mumbai Indians` veteran Sachin Tendulkar`s 40th birthday.
