PBKS vs KKR IPL 2021: 3 Potential Game-Changer In Punjab Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Dream11 Grand League, April 26


PBKS vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction: Punjab Kings could clock back to back wins for the first time in IPL 2021 when they play beleaguered Kolkata Knight Riders at on Monday evening (IST). If that happens PBKS could break into top four, hard to believe considering KL Rahul and Co were propping up the table before winning against Mumbai Indians. That win should give PBKS a huge lift ahead of the season-defining couple of weeks. But Kolkata Knight Riders are in deep trouble. They have won just once in five rounds, and arrive here on a four-game losing run. Too many players are on a bad run, including captain Eoin Morgan whose decision making is seemingly under the weather. But KKR have quality and enough players with special capabilities. Here, for the PBKS vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction, three players who could make all the right noise.

IPL 2021 PBKS vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction

1. Fabian Allen: We expect him to play for the simple reason that KL Rahul may not want to flirt with the winning combination. But he is more than a luxury. The 25-year-old is a premium all-rounder on his day and can make himself the best player on the team on any given day.

2. Eoin Morgan: He is the player under immense pressure. He is the captain of course and is not doing enough to warrant his place in KKR Playing 11. However, we all know he is super quality and shouldn’t be overlooked.

3. Andre Russell: The West Indian has been a fan-favourite amongst the KKR fan base. But so far in IPL 2021, he has been a pale shadow of himself, hardly been consistent. He has shone only in bits and pieces. But we know how good he is. He can be unplayable.
