first_imgOld foes Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians will lock horns for the third time for a place in the Indian Premier League final when they meet in Qualifer 2 at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday.KKR, who won by seven wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the rain-interrupted Eliminator on Thursday, will have revenge on their minds as Mumbai have beaten them twice in the league stages this year.The Gautam Gambhir-led KKR also have an abysmal 5-15 head-to-head record against Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai.At home, Mumbai pulled off their first win of the season against the men in purple when they beat them by four wickets with just one ball to spare.Mumbai once again got the better of KKR when they handed them a nine-run defeat in their last league match at the Eden Gardens. This was KKR’s first defeat while chasing at Eden Gardens since 2013.However, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma believes that his team can’t bank on the past results and said that they have to put their best foot forward.”We will not be thinking that we have beaten them (KKR) twice in this tournament. We have to come out and do what we have been doing as a team.”We will be confident against these guys (KKR) but I believe that whoever is good on that particular day wins the game,” Rohit told MI TV.With 10 victories in the league stage, table-toppers Mumbai have been in imperious form and they would like to forget their defeat against Rising Pune Supergiant in Qualifier 1 and rise to the big occasion.advertisement”I am hoping that we play our best game tomorrow. We will worry about the finals later. We just want to focus on the game and on doing the right things. If we do that everything will take care of itself.”I think we were in the same situation in 2013 as well. We lost the first qualifier and then went on to win the title. We have to come to the ground with a positive frame of mind thinking that there will be 40 overs of play,” he said.Rohit also said that the conditions in Bengaluru will not matter much.  “Conditions are conditions, it is something that you cannot control. You have got to focus on the job at hand and that is coming out here and playing good cricket,” he said.last_img read more
