By Dheeraj Singh @Cric_kette

KXIP vs KKR 6th Match DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | KXIP vs KKR | Indian Premier League 2019

Kolkata, March 27, Wednesday at 08:00 PM IST

The 6th battle of IPL 2019 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab at the iconic Eden Gardens on Wednesday evening. Andre Russell turned out to be the game changer for the hosts in the opening fixture against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday and it will be interesting to watch if he manages to pull out another blinder tomorrow evening.

While Kolkata has Andre Russell as their power hitter, Kings XI Punjab has Universe Boss – Chris Gayle at their top order who slammed 47-balls 79 to guide Punjab to 184-4 against Rajasthan Royals. Apart from Gayle and Russell, the clash will also feature plenty of big-hitters in the likes of Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, KL Rahul and N Pooran. So, another high-scoring cracker is expected at Edens tomorrow. The match will start at 08:00 PM IST.

Both the sides have started their campaign with a win and would be looking to register a second win on the trot. Playing at their backyard, Kolkata Knight Riders will have the home advantage and will be favorites to win the clash. They also have an upper hand in terms of head to head encounters as the hosts have won 15 out of 23 encounters. So, while we wait to watch who wins the battle this time, let’s have a look at the team news and grand league teams.
