Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL Match Prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders have been very inconsistent in this season of the Indian Premier League. Though they have 3 wins in 5 games, they haven’t played the way they’re known for. Their wins are a result of one or two brilliant performance but as a team they have been a big let-down. This approach can hurt them badly in crucial games. Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, all have performed well but have been on and off in the tournament so far. They haven’t delivered back to back performances. Moreover, the form of Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell will now be a major concern for the KKR management. Rahul Tripathi’s promotion at the top has been a good move as Sunil Narine wasn’t giving them the starts they’re looking for. Their bowling has fared decently in the tournament and only if their batsmen can deliver, they’ll be on par with the best teams.

For Punjab, the tournament has been a sorry tale. They’ve lost 5 off the 6 games they’ve played and it’s really getting hard for them. The problem for Punjab is they’re too much dependent on KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Nicolas Pooran too played a brilliant knock in the previous game but apart from them, all other players have been very disappointing. Also their bowling isn’t the best in the tournament. Mohammed Shami is running out of gas, so does Sheldon Cottrell. The plan to play Mujeeb in the last game didn’t work out either. Ravi Bishnoi has been terrific but you need all your players to contribute to get the desired result. For them to beat KKR, they’ll need all their players to perform decently, else they’ll be 6-1 at the end of the match.
