KXIP vs KKR Match Prediction:- It will be a do or die game for both Kings Eleven Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders at Mohali in the 52nd match of Indian Premier League. After starting their campaign on a high, both sides have stumbled in the latter part of the event. Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings Eleven Punjab have both registered five wins in 12 matches apiece.
Whoever team lose this match will be practically out of the contention for the playoffs while the winning side will have to win their one final match to make it into the top four.
Kings Eleven Punjab
KXIP vs KKR Match Prediction:- Kings Eleven Punjab hasn’t been the side they were at the start of the league. Currently, they are on a losing spree having lost three games in a row. One of the reasons for their losses has been their middle-order woes. Players with the likes of Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh, and David Miller failed to notch big innings. Chris Gayle too failed in two out of three games with scores of 23 and 4.
The form of Ravi Ashwin has been perhaps the biggest positive for Kings Eleven Punjab. The Indian spinner has been amongst the wickets. However, other bowlers such as Mohammad Shami, Murugan Ashwin, etc needed to step up ahead of the big game.
Kolkata Knight Riders
KXIP vs KKR Match Prediction:- After losing three matches in a row, the Knight Riders finally registered a win against Mumbai Indians in the 47th match of Indian Premier League. KKR will be high on confidence with players such as Shubman Gill, Chris Lynn, Andre Russel amongst the runs.
Sunil Narine has been the most successful bowler for KKR. His four overs will certainly play a crucial role in the match.
