Current form – KKR – Last five matches – W L L L L
KKR haven’t been able to get going and their batting unit hasn’t been able to execute their skills consistently. The Eoin Morgan-led is struggling to find the momentum and they will want to come back stronger. KKR could only manage 133 runs in their previous match against RR and they will need to pull up their socks.
PBKS – Last five matches – W L L L W
PBKS will be delighted after stunning the defending champions Mumbai Indians. This win must have added a shot in the arm to the players. Punjab came up with a fine bowling performance as Mohammed Shami and Ravi Bishnoi were right on target. Thus, PBKS will look to continue the winning momentum.
Head to Head – Overall matches – 27, Won by KKR – 18, Won by PBKS – 9.
Players to look out for: Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, and Nicholas Pooran will be the key players for PBKS.
KKR will want their big players like Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan to come to the party. Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi had done a fine job for the team in the opening match.
Match Prediction – Based on current form, PBKS will enter the contest as slightly favourites against KKR.
