Kolkata Knight Riders: The two-time IPL champions and 2021 finalists looked solid in their season-opening win against holders Chennai Super Kings. But against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they were gasping for air. Skipper Shreyas Iyer's little knock pretty much summed up the team's approach -- going for the kill.

In that instance, however, that backfired. Will they change the tactics? Very unlikely. They have a veritable list of match winners - Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane, Nitish Rana, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee, Varun Chakaravarthy, etc.

Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal's side is equally flamboyant. Shikhar Dhawan, Odean Smith, Shahrukh Khan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Rahul Chahar, etc. all played their part in that win against RCB. With Kagiso Rabada available for the match, PBKS can in fact take the game to KKR. They sure have the team to challenge the best, as usual.


This will be the 30th meeting between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings. KKR lead the head-to-head record 19-10. In IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders beat Punjab Kings by five wickets in Ahmedabad. Punjab Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets in Dubai.


The Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings clash will be the third match at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium this IPL edition. In the first match, KKR chased down CSK's 131/5 in 18.3 overs with Umesh Yadav exploiting the freshness of the pitch. Later in that match, Dwayne Bravo claimed three wickets.

In the second match, on a different pitch which was lot drier, another pacer, Mohammed Shami won take the honours as Gujarat Titans first restricted Lucknow Super Giants to 158/6 before chasing it down in a thriller.
