Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders,NostraGamus Prediction

Kings XI Punjab will go against Kolkata Knight Riders on 3 May 2019 at 8 PM IST at the Kings home ground, Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium. It will be a difficult match for both, as their performance has been more or less similar throughout the season. Both have played twelve matches and won five, so both stand at 10 points each. The only difference is KKR’s bowling unit which has a better net-run rate.

Kings performance has been slipping in the last few matches, and their chance at playoffs seems slim. With home advantage they have good chance to pick up their game and possibly win the match. The team’s confidence and motivation has taken a hit after losing terribly to Hyderabad Sunrisers. Also in the last match, bowlers Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Arshdeep Singh gave away 66 and 42 runs respectively, and did not take any wickets. Bowlers performance will be critical as at Bindra Stadium is known to be susceptive to errors. The team’s run score is mostly in the hands of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul, they will need to score otherwise the Kings are really going to struggle this match.

Since KKR has been giving more time to Andre Russell, their chances of winning has really picked up. After winning the last match against KXIP this IPL season, the team is looking forward to winning again. Their batting unit is back in form mainly due to the strength of Chris Lynn and Dinesh Karthik. Hopefully bowlers Narine and Russell will deliver well this match, as the large Bindra Stadium might suit their bowling style.
