Today’s match will be played between Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders. While Kolkata has history by its side, with two times win in the IPL, Punjab has the momentum, where they have won two back to back matches in the IPL this year. Both the teams will face off each other at the Eden Gardens. This will be the first match at the stadium in the IPL this year. Thus, we cannot have a clear picture about how the wicket might show its character, while we are doing today’s match prediction.
KXIP vs KKR Match Will Be Telecasted Live on Sony Television From 8:00 PM
However, we can surely talk about the two teams that will be looking to face off each other. The team has played 2 matches. One of them has been against Pune Supergiants and the other against the finalists of the last time, Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team has won on both the encounters.
Talking about the Kolkata Knight Riders, the team has won the first match against the Gujarat Lions quite comfortably. While in the second game, they were playing against the Mumbai Indians and were outdone by the Indian batsmen in the very final over of the match. The team had started off with some outstanding batting display by the captain himself and also the opener Chris Lynn, who has hurt himself badly in the last match and might not be available in the entire IPL 2017, due to a shoulder injury.
When these two teams clash against each other, as the KKR vs KXIP match would be intense, one would also have to keep a look on the points table, as a lot might be happening on the same after the match at Eden Gardens. Currently, the Kings XI Punjab are placed at the top of the table with 4 points from two games. The Kolkata Knight Riders are placed at number 5 with just 2 points from as many games.
Giving today’s match prediction is really tough as both the teams look good to outdo the other. Also, it will be tough to speculate on who will win IPL match today.
