Kolkata Knight Riders coach Jacques Kallis on Friday said his team would put its best foot forward to make it to the play-offs of the ongoing IPL when it takes on formidable Sunrisers Hyderabad in a crucial match on Saturday at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium.
"Yes, it's a must-win game and the team needs to put up a competitive performance to make it to the playoffs," Kallis said in the pre-match press conference on Friday.
Placed third on the points table with 14 points, KKR will have to beat SRH to confirm its spot in the play-offs. If the Dinesh Karthik led KKR loses, they will have to hope for other results to go its way.
Sunrisers, on the other hand, are coming off a loss to a Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore and KKR can take advantage of this fact.
"They (Sunrisers Hyderabad) have played some good cricket. They are obviously coming off a loss but they have already qualified. We will have to play some good cricket to beat them", Kallis said.
SRH has already qualified for the play-offs are at the top of the table with 18 points.
