Kolkata Riders vs Kings XI Punjab by Aditya9920

Kings-XI-Punjab
Kolkata are once again on way to make it to the playoffs, performing consistently in the initial stages. With 5 wins out of the 8 and most of them coming in the away matches, I think they can guarantee their place in the top 4, given how strong they are on their home turf. Their batting seems to be their strongest suit, with Robin and Gauti providing excellent starts and Pandey, Suryakumar, Shakib/Lynn, Russell, Yusuf to follow. Each of the batsmen mentioned have already played a match winning innings this season in just 8 matches. Their bowling looks average, compared to how it performed in the past few seasons but they look to take advantage of the spinning track at Kolkata and come back with their heavy spin duty bowling with the likes of Hogg, Narine, Chawla, Shakib. Overall they are the most confident team this IPL along with Delhi in my opinion.

 

On the other side, this has been one more disappointing season for Punjab. None of their departments clicked till now. They changed the captaincy, the batting order and even changed the bowling combinations but none of them seemed to be worked. Barring Marsh and Vijay, none of them have consistently and to make things even worser, Marsh was ruled out of the remaining season. I feel Punjab will again end last this season and win only one or two of the remaining fixtures.

 

Kolkata are superior in all the departments and given the recent results and confidence of the players and how strong Kolkata are at home, I feel Kolkata should win this one comfortably.

 

All the Best :)
