IPL2022 is slowing gathering momentum and teams are trying their best to find their right balance and depth in their playing XI. And are also waiting for the arrival of some of their key foreign players. KKR started off the season on a positive note with a victory over CSK in the tournament opener but succumbed to loss against RCB in their second game in a low scoring thriller. PBKS on the other hand won their first game against RCB is a superb fashion chasing a big target. Both teams have been performing superbly in the league so far and will look to continue their momentum going ahead in this match.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

KKR were bundled out for just 128 runs in their last match against RCB. Andre Russell top scored with 25 runs while all the remaining batters failed to cross the 20-run mark. Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, and Sam Billings looked good with the bat but failed to make a big score in both matches. They have a long batting line-up with players till No.8 capable of hitting big shots.

Pacers Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee started off a brilliant fightback in the chase claiming 5 wickets between them. Sunil Narine was at his usual best with figures of 4-0-12-1 while Varun Chakravarthy had an off day leaking runs in the low scoring contest. Andre Russell and Venkatesh Iyer bowled the fifth bowler`s quota of overs costing 46 runs of just 3.2 overs. We expect them to add a bowler into their playing XI considering the fitness concern for Russell.

Top Players to bet on: Shreyas Iyer, Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer (c), Sam Billings/Chamika Karunaratne, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakaravarthy

Punjab Kings Preview

Punjab Kings chased down 206 runs in just 19 overs against RCB in the first match. Mayank Agarwal (32 runs) and Shikhar Dhawan (43 runs) set the tone of the chase with their 71-run opening partnership while the duo of Banuka Rajapaksa (43 runs) and Liam Livingstone (19 runs) continued the good platform build with runs at a good strike rate. Shahrukh Khan (24 runs) and Odean Smith (25 runs) finished off the chase with some big shots showcasing their firepower.

Their bowling unit bleak with claiming just 2 wickets in the match. Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar claimed a wicket each and looked good with the ball while the other bowlers went for runs at over 10 RPO. Kagiso Rabada will come into the playing XI after finishing his quarantine norms in this match. Sandeep Sharma will expect to continue his new ball bowling duties alongside Arshdeep Singh. Rahul Chahar will be their premier spinner in the playing XI this season.

Top Players to bet on: Odean Smith, Mayank Agarwal, Kagiso Rabada

Punjab Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (wk), Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar/Raj Bawa, Sandeep Sharma, Rahul Chahar

Weather Conditions

Mumbai will have a bright and sunny weather with no weather interruptions expected in the match. Dew might come in the second innings and trouble the bowlers grip the ball big time.

Venue Details

Wankhade has been a slightly balanced pitch with something in it for both bowlers and batters. Teams has lost wickets in the powerplay with the ball swinging and seaming around effectively. We expect the scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as teams are not confident of any target set in the matches played so far. Chasing teams have a 5-1 win-loss record so far in this season.

PBKS has a brilliant batting line-up and almost all the top-7 players played a crucial role in the big chase against RCB. But their bowling looks slightly weak but arrival of Rabada will boost their attack in this match. KKR were brilliant with the ball in both the matches and their big issue has been the fifth bowler’s quota of overs. Their batting has been off-colour in the 2 matches played so far and they need to pile up big runs in coming matches. We expect KKR to win this match owing to their bowling strength with new ball and spinners.

KKR will win the match
