IPL 2021: In the 45th match of the Indian Premier League Season 14, Kolkata Knight Riders is going to face Punjab Kings today. This match will be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium at 7.30 pm. In view of the playoff race, today’s match is going to prove to be very important for KKR.
After the tournament was shifted to UAE, the performance of KKR’s team has seen an improvement. KKR has made a place in the top 4 by surprising everyone. The Eoin Morgan-led team is currently in the race for the playoffs with 10 points in 11 matches.
Batting lineup strengthens
KKR’s young batting lineup seems to be in excellent form. Venkatesh Iyer has given a new life to the top order by making a great start. Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana are also seen making a comeback in the form. Captain Eoin Morgan’s form, however, still remains a matter of concern for the team.
There is no possibility of any change in the bowling lineup in this important match to be played against Punjab Kings. The team has not released any update regarding Andre Russell. Tim Southee impressed with his bowling in the last match and he is likely to play in this match.
KKR: Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sandeep Warrier, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine and Lockie Ferguson.
