New Delhi, Online Desk. The league match of the Indian Premier League Season 15 has reached the last stage from where every win and loss will decide the fate of the team. When Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata teams will face each other on the MCS ground, the fate of both the teams will be at stake. While Hyderabad’s win will take him closer in the race for the playoffs, Kolkata’s defeat will put him out of the IPL. Currently both the teams have 10-10 points but the good thing for Hyderabad is that they have played one match less than Kolkata.

Despite the victory, the road to Kolkata is difficult.
If Kolkata wins both its remaining matches from here, then it is unlikely to reach the playoffs, whereas if Hyderabad wins all the remaining matches, then it will get 16 points and for the playoffs, it is waiting for the results of other teams. Will have to do Kolkata will be able to reach 14 points even after winning both the matches, which is insufficient to reach the playoffs.
Remaining matches of Hyderabad
After the match against Kolkata, the remaining two matches of the team will be from Mumbai and Punjab Kings. This season has not been good for Mumbai but the war between Punjab and Hyderabad can decide the fate of both the teams.
