Kolkata Knight Riders take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Sunday, 22 May.

Kolkata Knight Riders come into the fixture with a must win match in order to qualify for the play-off stage of the tournament. A defeat will see them rely on several other results to make it to the top four.

Gautam Gambhir saw his side suffer defeat at the hands of Gujarat Lions in the last fixture, which kept the latter alive in this season's IPL. A defeat for the Lions against Mumbai Indians could spell an end to their campaign if KKR beat Sunrisers Hyderabad.

David Warner has helped his side sit on top of the table and they had an opportunity to seal a top two berth, if they had managed a victory over Delhi Daredevils. The Sunrisers' loss has allowed six teams fight for a top four spot. A victory for the Lions and RCB will see Warner's side slip to third in the table.
