After defeating SunRisers Hyderabad in their last clash, Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to take on the Punjab Kings in the 53rd encounter of the Indian Premier League 2023 at home. With four victories in their account, KKR are having an on-and-off season in the Indian cash-rich league. On the flip side, Shikhar Dhawan-led Punjab Kings are coming off after losing their last clash against the five-time champions Mumbai Indians. They are currently occupying the seventh position in the points table.
The rivalry between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings goes a long way in the history of the tournament. However, if we speak of their last clash in the Indian Premier League 2023, the Kolkata-based franchise had won the toss and invited their hosts to bat first. Now that they are set to lock horns for the second time in the current season, we believe Punjab Kings will win the toss.
As mentioned, the rivalry between KKR and PBKS (earlier Kings XI Punjab) goes a long way, as both the teams have clashed against each other 31 times in the IPL. Records say that Kolkata Knight Riders have won 20 matches, whereas Punjab have won 11. Speaking of their last clash, Punjab Kings took down their rivals, the Kolkata-based franchise. Not only this, if we look at this year’s performance of both teams, it makes it easier to say that Punjab will score two against KKR.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The first innings score of the upcoming clash at Eden Gardens will be between 160-170 and the powerplay score will be between 45-50.
