Kolkata and Hyderabad have played 13-13 matches so far in the league. Both teams have won 6-6 matches and lost 7-7 matches. However, because of better run-rate, Hyderabad is at fourth place in the numeral table, while Kolkata is at fifth position.

To reach the playoffs of former champions Hyderabad, now only need one win against Bangalore, while Kolkata will have to win the match to be played with Mumbai to reach the playoffs as well as pray for the defeat of Hyderabad.
