KXIP vs KOL Today Match Prediction Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders Who will win Today 10 October

KXIP vs KOL today match prediction: Just like that, we are into the 3rd week of Indian Premier League and KXIP will play KKR in the 24th match of the season. KXIP are down and out at this point in time and they are in desperate need for a victory after having lost 4 out of their last 4 games and are staring at an early exit in this edition. Their approach, team selections, game plans have been baffling to say the least. With a strong core of support staff at their helm, they were expected to put up a show but they looked lost in the tournament.

Kolkata Knight Riders on the other hand have managed a jailbreak against CSK and came out unscathed as they had no business in winning the game against CSK. Their strange tactics continue to amaze one and all but they did get their batting order right which turned out to a welcome move but their tactics of holding back Sunil Narine till the very last moment could have easily backfired.

KXIP vs KOL Dream11 prediction for today’s match

One team has loads of weakness and the other team has more strengths than weaknesses and in today IPL match prediction, let us take a look at those.
Strengths
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)
Nicholas Pooran has hit form in a grand manner. The universe BOSS Chris Gayle might find a way to play if he is good and that would make their batting order a real force to reckon with. The form of Ravi Bishnoi hasn’t faded away right from the first match.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)
The spin twins of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy have showed immense calmness under pressure situations. The idea of using Sunil Narine as a pinch hitter helped them to a great deal. The form of Rahul Tripathi is a big plus. Andre Russell's bowling has given a whole new dimension to that KKR bowling attack as they have the luxury to finish Pat Cummins early in their bowling innings.
Weaknesses
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)
Their bowling was going nowhere in their game against SRH where they conceded 200 runs on a decent wicket for bowling. With Chris Gayle possibly returning to the side, it could once again be an unsettled playing11.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)
The form of Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell has been a real worry for them. Their batting order looks thin with 2 out of form hitters down the order. They will be hoping to come back to form against KXIP's weak bowling attack.

KXIP vs KOL Dream11 team for today’s match
In dream11 prediction, let us pick the players who can play an important part in fantasy teams.
Mayank Agarwal: After having missed out in his previous game, he is sure to come back hard against Kolkata Knight Riders. Also there is a healthy competition between Mayank Agarwal and his captain KL Rahul for the orange cap as Mayank Agarwal is with 281 runs and Kl Rahul is with 313 runs.
Rahul Tripathi: He came into the side and made an impact in all the 2 games he has played. He is fresh off from his man of the match award winning performance where he scored 81 runs against CSK.
Andre Russell: He is going to come good at some stage of the tournament with the bat but his bowling is already a bonus for fantasy players. Also he is bowling at death and has one of the best death bowling numbers in this IPL.
Sunil Narine: He can be a real force with the bat in the middle order where spinners are operating. His 4 overs are the lifeline for his captain Dinesh Karthik. He can be a quality pick in the fantasy teams
Other picks: KL Rahul, Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan can all be good picks as well.
