Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata Knight Riders are one of the form sides in the tournament, having won four of their last six matches. They are currently in fourth spot on the table. 

In their last encounter against the Delhi Capitals, the Knight Riders won the toss and elected to field first. A superb effort with the ball saw them restrict the Capitals to a lowly 127 runs. Lockie Ferguson was the pick of the bowlers with 2-10.

The chase proved to be a sticky one on a wearing pitch. Shubman Gill (30) played a steady knock at the top of the order. Wickets fell at regular intervals, but a calm 36 runs off 27 balls from Nitish Rana steered them home with 10 balls to spare. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Injuries


Kolkata Knight Riders have momentum on their side, so will look to keep the same starting side intact.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings come into this match on the back of four defeats in their last six matches. They still have a chance at a spot in the playoffs. 

Against the Mumbai Indians last time out, the Kings struggled batting first. Aiden Markram was the sole shining light, scoring 42 off 29 balls to help them to a 135-run total.

Two early wickets gave the Punjab Kings some hope in the contest. Unfortunately that is where their fortune dried up as the Mumbai outfit cruised to a comfortable win.
