Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday. RCB are done and dusted and they are playing for nothing but pride. Meanwhile, KKR are playing for a top-two finish in the IPL 2017 points table. 

Having lost two matches on the bounce, a sudden sense of doubt has creeped in the side. Gautam Gambhir and co. would surely want to brush that off their shoulders and move on and put up a rocking show against the down and out RCB. 

KKR still have three matches in their hands including the RCB game and they just have to win two out of these three to cement their place in the playoff stages. But Gambhir is someone who is very heard to please. The southpaw from Delhi would not only want a playoff finish but also he would want KKR to be one of the top two teams in the points table so that they get two chances to qualify for the big final. 

Robin Uthappa and Chris Lynn were seen practising in the nets on Saturday and assistant coach of KKR, Simon Katich has confirmed that both players might be available for selection against RCB on Sunday.
