Toss Delayed In Kolkata Knight Riders-Mumbai Indians Clash Due To Rain

Kolkata (West Bengal) [India]: Toss has been delayed in the IPL clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians due to rain.

Eden Gardens, the venue for the match, has been covered with sheets by the ground staff so that the play can begin at the earliest. There is no update on when the toss will take place and match will start.

Hardik Pandya-led MI are already out of the playoffs after they lost eight of 12 matches in the tournament. MI are in ninth place in the IPL standings and have a negative net run rate of 0.212.

The Kolkata-based franchise have won 8 of 11 matches and are on the top of the table with 16 points and has a positive net run rate of 1.453. They are just two points away from securing qualification for the playoffs.

Riders' average powerplay score of 68 is the second-highest in the season. They also have the joint second-highest boundary percentage (30.8) in the powerplay.

Their high-scoring approach has had its repercussions as they have lost 16 wickets in the first six overs, which is joint second lowest after CSK's 13.
