KKR Vs KXIP Prediction 21 April: Who Will today’s Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.

Kolkata Knight Riders are getting back into their groove with a convincing 7 wickets victory over a strong Rajasthan Royals side. Kings XI Punjab is doing their own Bhangra after sailing past Sunrisers Hyderabad, one of the best teams in IPL 2018. Stay with us to kick off the weekend bonanza with a KKR Vs KXIP clash on the cards. Team News, Playing XI, match analysis and prediction on the cards.

KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders)

It would be unjustified to not consider KKR as title contenders considering their sudden uplift in form. Kolkata Knight Riders could well go onto match Mumbai Indians for a record 3rd title. It is hard to beat Kolkata at their fortress, and KXIP will face a steep challenge considering a well balanced Eden Gardens wicket that seems to cater the spinners since eternity. With Russell unfit to bowl, and Tom Curran still a newbie, Kolkata may look this is an opportunity to play Cameron Delport at the expense of the misfiring Chris Lynn. Sunil Narine is an eternal presence, and despite getting belted for 48 runs in his 4 overs, he made up for that with a sweet 35 and partnered well with Uthappa. Dinesh Karthik got some runs under his belt, and Nitish Rana looks to be the best Indian batsman by a fair margin in IPL 11. IPL 2018 has also seen Chawla resurrect his lost touch and looks pivotal when Russell is unable to open the bowling.

Onus will be on Shivam Mavi to cease the opportunity as DK is putting a lot of faith in the youngster. IPL 2018 has fared well for Kuldeep Yadav, and he seems to enjoy himself at the Mecca of Indian Cricket. It will be a steep task for KXIP, and with the Kolkata weather behaving like London it will be an interesting toss as well.

Sunil Narine, both with the ball and bat will be the key to KKR’s success. Nitish Rana and Uthappa would make a case for themselves, and Russell remains the most priced wicket in IPL 2018 for KKR.

KKR Playing XI

Chris Lynn/Cameron Delport, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik, Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Tom Curran, Shivam Mavi

KXIP (Kings XI Punjab)

KXIP has rocked SRH with a convincing victory and they will look to dominate the early stages of IPL 2018 to grab the top two coveted spots. The team looks balanced, and the brilliance of Christopher Henry Gayle is something to watch and appreciate. Gayle notched up his 6th IPL hundred, a record in itself, but looks to feel the heat of India. With the Kolkata weather known for his humidity, Gayle would make use of the smaller boundaries. KL Rahul has been ominous too and can decide a match by himself. We haven’t seen Miller till now, and it looks like Finch would hold onto his spot for at least another match. Yuvraj Singh hasn’t been at his best, but when his day arrives IPL 2018 will see another mind-boggling effort from the veteran.

Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Sran, and Andrew Tye are forming a formidable partnership, but much will depend on their middle over bowling where Russell is wreaking havoc. Given KXIP contain Russell, they could well win this IPL tie.

Chris Gayle and KL Rahul without a shadow of a doubt. The bowling department will rely on the experience of Tye and Sharma with Ashwin looking to scalp Narine before he brings his own mayhem.

KXIP Playing XI

Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin, Andrew Tye, Mohit Sharma, Barinder Sran, Mujeeb ur Rehman
