It's hard for the average fan to find much significance in this game, but Kolkata Knight Riders would disagree. Their chances of progressing to the playoffs are mighty slim at the moment, but it's still mathematically possible. And they have been keeping that flickering hope alive by winning their previous two matches, while others have done their bit for them, too - Mumbai Indians came from behind to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Kings XI Punjab, who are also trying to fight their way out of a very tight corner, handed Royal Challengers Bangalore their first defeatof the year at the Chinnaswamy stadium. Knight Riders have to win their remaining two matches now, and do it with as big a margin as possible to boost their net run rate, and hope Sunrisers and Royal Challengers keep losing.
Knight Riders will be glad that one of their two upcoming must-wins is against Pune Warriors. Bottom-of-the-table Warriors have long since been out of this tournament, and have looked clueless more often than not. For them, this match is all about preventing their losing streak from extending into double digits: they have lost nine in a row since showing so much promise by beating Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk. Considering they have lost 33 out of 44 IPL matches (10 wins, 1 no result) overall, and 21 off the previous 23, any victory however insignificant would be most welcome.

Pune Warriors performance in this season of IPL hasn't changed much, after couple of victories everyone was expecting a lot from them but they again turned to be one of the weakest team of the tournament and for their captaincy is the main reason for their performance.
Kolkata Knight Riders have an outside chance to qualify for the play-offs but they are very much dependent upon Risers and Kings XI performances. Though their batsmen didn't perform very well in the last match against the RCB here on this ground they have better bowling attach if you compare that too Pune Warriors.
