Squad Comparison for Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings  

Kolkata Knight Riders

The Knight Riders need to win this game to stay in the top four. Four teams are tied for 10 points, with KKR ranking eighth with 8 points. KKR will need to win every game from here on out to stay in the race and have a chance to make the playoffs. Nitish Rana will be pleased with his team’s bowling performance in the previous match.

Vaibhav Arora and Shardul Thakur each took two wickets in defending a 171-run target, while Varun Chakravarthy finished with one for twenty in four overs. Anukul Roy bowled three overs as KKR chose him over Suyash Sharma for the impact role. After the top order collapsed, it was a good sign for KKR that their middle order stepped up and delivered. Roy and Gurbaz, the big guns, failed to make an impression and returned to the hut early.

Kolkata Knight Riders Playing XI

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Jason Roy, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana (c), Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Sunil Narine, Shardul Thakur, Vaibhav Arora, Harshit Rana, Varun Chakaravarthy

Punjab Kings  

Punjab Kings is yet another inconsistent IPL team. Two of their last three losses have come at Mohali, where their bowlers have failed spectacularly. First, against LSG, Punjab surrendered the highest total of this year’s IPL.

And, in their most recent home game against MI, brilliant batting performances from Livingstone and Jitesh Sharma helped Punjab post a 214-run batting first total. Despite this, they were never in command of the game while defending the total and were defeated by 6 wickets. Sam Curran and Arshdeep Singh are two of the best left-arm seam bowlers in the game.

Punjab Kings Playing XI

Prabhsimran Singh, Shikhar Dhawan (c), Matthew Short, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Sam Curran, Shahrukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Rishi Dhawan, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings Match Prediction

There isn’t much of a distinction between the two sides. There is no clear winner in this comparison. Both have a lot of problems to deal with. This year, KKR has a poor home record, which counts against them. Punjab’s bowling has been very expensive, making them untrustworthy when it comes to defending a score. If the pitch continues to provide good bounce and carry, it will be another high-scoring game, and we believe KKR will have a slight advantage.
