PK vs KKR Match & Analysis

Punjab Kings won a very important match against the Mumbai Indians in the previous match and moved to the middle of the IPL 2021 table standings. Their opponents in this match, the Kolkata Knight Riders are still looking for their second win of the season and have now lost their previous four matches.

This is going to be the first match in the Ahemdabad leg and it will be interesting to see what kind of a surface is provided to the teams. We saw a relatively fast and bouncy wicket on offer in the T20 series between India and England played there a few weeks ago.

Punjab Kings showed glimpses of form in the previous match while KKR looks a bit lost as to the ideal strategy that it wants to follow.

Both teams would love a win in this match and move closer to the top-4 slots of the IPL league table.

Punjab Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2021 is going to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on the 26th of April 2021.

PK vs KKR Team Previews

Punjab Kings

This is going to be an interesting match for Punjab Kings. It finally managed to get its team combination right for a slow Chennai pitch and may need to make changes once more. Fabian Allen may be swapped out for someone like Jhye Richardson to make better use of the conditions.

Moises Henriques has done enough to keep his place as someone who can bowl with the new ball up front and bolster the batting lineup. Also, there is no doubt that pressure must be mounting on Nicholas Pooran to score some runs with Dawid Malan waiting on the bench.

Pooran is not going to be dropped in this match but he is getting ever closer to being dropped.

KL Rahul has been criticized for his strike rate but he has been the biggest factor in the two matches that his team has won in IPL 2021. With Mayank Aggarwal and Chris Gayle also hitting some form, the Punjab Kings batting is pretty decent.

They have Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Moises Henriques, and Shahrukh Khan in the team so they can probably afford to go a bit harder in what should be better batting conditions.

Punjab Kings does not have the best bowling lineup but it does have six options in its team. Moises Henriques was quite good with the new ball and could be given that rile once more. We think Jhye Richardson, Deepak Hooda, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammad Shami, and Arshdeep Singh are all going to be a part of the attack for this match.

If Punjab Kings can get some early breakthroughs then they should be able to give KKR a run for its money.

Kolkata Knight Riders

After two weeks of the competition, KKR appears to be the team that is struggling the most in IPL 2021. It has the best all-rounder in T20 cricket but does not seem to know what to do with him. Even the other tactics, in general, have been quite bizarre.

Also, the form of its leading players is very concerning. Shubman Gill is having a very poor IPL so far, Nitish Rana seems to have cooled off after a good start, Eoin Morgan cannot buy a run right now, and the bowling attack is quite underwhelming.

In the one match where Andre Russell came to the crease with some overs to bat, he very nearly won them the match from a position that KKR should have had no chance. The current batting lineup of KKR is quite brittle and seems to lack the X-factor needed to compete effectively.

Adding Sunil Narine to the attack has not had the impact that they would have hoped either. His bowling is decent but nowhere near as effective as it used to be. His batting also seems to have deteriorated and we are not sure if he justifies a place in the starting eleven just yet.

Shivam Mavi was very good in the only match he played and Varun Chakravarthy has been the best bowler for KKR so far. Prasiddh Krishna has not been to pick early wickets, though, and Pat Cummins continues to be startlingly expensive for a bowler of his stature.

KKR has some very big names in its squad, some very expensive players that it splurged on in the auction but they do not seem to be working very well at the moment. You can’t write them off but they seem to be in a rut that can be difficult to come out of.

PK vs KKR Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. That has been the strategy for teams so far on good batting wickets and also it allows them to take advantage of new dew that falls.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

We expect the pitch in AHmedabad to have a decent amount of bounce and pace in it. It should allow for some exciting cricket to be played with scores that reach close to 180 in most matches. The batsmen will be able to dominate, however, the large boundaries will being the bowlers into play as well.

The spinners may have something to work with as the ball gets older.

PK vs KKR Betting Tips

We are going to back the Punjab Kings to win in this match. There is not too much to choose between the two teams on paper but the current form of the Kolkata Knight Riders is very low. They are struggling to find the best performances from their players and also to find a way to utilize their resources in an effective manner. The Punjab Kings seem to be in a better space right now.

Bet on Punjab Kings to win.

This has been by far our favorite and most profitable betting market this IPL season. One fifty from one player in the Punjab Kings is a pretty safe bet and so to get a return of nearly 45% on our stake is just brilliant.

With KL Rahul at the top and Chris Gayle to follow, we think the Punjab Kings have a very good chance of winning this bet. It is riskier than our other recommended bet for this match but then you are getting a better return as well.
