Kingsmead: Kolkata Knight Riders captain McCullum won the toss and elected to bat against Bangalore Royal Challengers at Kingsmead on Wednesday.

Riders, Challengers encounter can be called 'a battle for survival' as both the IPL teams have registered only one win each from five outings.

Shah Rukh Khan's Knight Riders have lost three of their five games and Mallya's Royal Challengers four and it will be hard task for both teams to stay in contention for a semi-final berth.
