Punjab Kings    VS   Kolkata Knight Riders   


This  is  the  21th  match  of  the  tournament  between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders  . Punjab Kings  team  will descend on the Narendra Modi Stadium in search of their third win. Punjab Kings such team whose batting line up is much better but so far only 5 matches have won 2  match.

Punjab Kings  captain KL Rahul was in a good Form whereas Chris Gayle has played a brilliant inning of 43 runs in previous match against Mumbai Indians. Punjab Kings has recorded only 2 win in this tournament so far and with that it is at the 5th position on the points table. Punjab Kings Mayank Agarwal played a good partnership in the last few matches with Rahul and he is capable of scoring a big score. Chris Gayle is also making a comeback, his bat was cold from the last few matches but now he is also making a splash with his bat, there is a lot of pressure above the bowlers when Chris Gayle plays and taking advantage of this pressure, he takes very good hits, this batsman is the key player of the team, the Punjab Kings have high hopes from them and they also live up to the expectations. Mohammad Shami will try his best to give his 100%, why did the previous matches of the match not have any success in his hand and Mohammed Shami will do his utmost to prove himself  better.

Kolkata Knight Riders have won only 1 match of this tournament so far and that is why they are ranked at the bottom of the points table. Although the batting order of Kolkata Knight Riders is very long but no specific run score was shown on the board, it was only 133 runs in the last match. If we see the bowling of Kolkata, it is also better, in which Varun Chakaravarthy is Sunil Narine, we can expect better bowling from both these bowlers.

Pitch Report: 
This  is  the  pitch  of   Narendra Modi Stadium  is  a  balanced  pitch  which  will definitely  help  the  batsmen  and  bowlers. On  this  pitch,  Pace  Bowler  will  get  more  help  than  the  Spin  bowler. As  we  know  that  both  teams  have  better  Pace   bowlers  such  as  Pat  Cummins , Prasidh  Krishna , Arshdeep  Singh, Mohammad Shami.  These  spinner  bowlers will  help  more  on  this  pitch . Whichever  team  wins  the  toss  will  decide  to  bat first  because  it  is   easier  to  bat  first  than  it  is  to  chase. The  average  score  on  this  pitch  is  160 (Based  on  last  5  Matches), and  the  first  inning  average  score  is  159. There  is  no  chance  of  rain  because  of  this  we  will  enjoy  the  match  .
