Both teams are coming off exciting wins in the first matches and it would be interesting to see the tricks that might be played when Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab clash at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Kolkata Knight Riders were on the backfoot after a knock of 80 odd from David Warner as Sunrisers Hyderabad had a great opening partnership between Warner and Jonny Bairstow.
KKR bowlers then held things back but they lost a few early wickets in Chris Lynn, Dinesh Karthik after which Shubman Gill and Andre Russell went on the fifth gear and finished off the match. Russell was the standout performer as he delivered the goods with both bat and ball.
On the other hand, despite Punjab putting up a good 180 + total on the board, Rajasthan Royals were pretty much in control of the chase, credit to partnerships between openers Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler followed by Sanju Samson and Steven Smith.
Once Buttler got out, things kept going south and the last few wickets were dismissed quite cheaply as KXIP won the match by 15 runs. Jofra Archer was the standout bowler for Rajasthan Royals while Mohammed Shami, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Ravichandran Ashwin all bowled well to pick crucial wickets for Kings XI Punjab.
Probable playing XI of both teams:
Kolkata Knight Riders- Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna
Kings XI Punjab- Chris Gayle, Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, Nicholas Pooran, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ankit Rajpoot
