In the current Indian T20 League 2022, Kolkata will face Punjab in match number eight. Kolkata has played two games thus far. While Punjab played one and won against Bangalore. Kolkata lost to Bangalore in a last-over, low-scoring thriller, and this will be Punjab’s second match. They had defeated Bangalore in a game in which both sides scored more than 200 runs. Punjab will be looking to continue their winning streak. It is a crucial encounter for both teams.

Team Preview

Kolkata

So far, Kolkata seems to have a strong start in the tournament. They have a significant edge in that they have a core group of players. In addition, the additional features have blended in nicely. As captain, Shreyas Iyer has been a revelation so far. He’s grabbed control of the run-scoring game. He’s also been rather astute when it comes to bowling adjustments.

The performances of Umesh Yadav and Ajinkya Rahane have been another significant boost for Kolkata. So far, the experienced cricketers have been outstanding. Pat Cummins is expected to be ready from April 5, giving Kolkata a well-rounded team.

Punjab

Punjab’s management may have breathed a sigh of relief after successfully completing a run chase against Bangalore. Shahrukh Khan and Odean Smith remained composed throughout the game. In Indian T20 League 2022, Punjab has one of the best batting lineups. Even without Jonny Bairstow, they were able to comfortably get past 200.

Bangalore’s bowling, on the other hand, faltered. A lot of runs were leaked by Smith, Arshdeep Singh, and Harpreet Brar. Kagiso Rabada will make his comeback against Kolkata. Punjab will receive a significant boost as a result of this. He’s a wicket-taker and an excellent death-over bowler.
