Indian Premier League, 2018

 Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders

After a humbling in the last game against the Mumbai Indians, a beleaguered Kolkata Knight Riders unit will take on the Kings XI Punjab, who too are coming off a chastening defeat at the hands of the Rajasthan Royals

With the race for the playoffs heating up, both teams would be looking to put in an improved performance in a bid to stay in contention for the top-four spot.

Where: Holkar Stadium, Indore

When: 12 May 2018, 4:00 PM

Pitch Conditions:

The wicket at the Holar Stadium is usually a batting paradise testified by Virender Sehwag’s 219 (then highest ODI score) against West Indies in 2011 Kohli’s double-hundred in the venue’s Test debut against England in 2016.

Statistics over the years: While over the past seven years, the average first innings score has gone from 137.5 to 169.6, the team batting second has a 100% success rate.
