Punjab Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders – Match Preview

Kolkata have beaten Punjab four times in their last five head-to-head meetings. This is a solid record, but the Kings won their last – and most recent – match against KKR in 2020.

Where: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

When: Monday, 26 April 2021

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This is the first time Ahmedabad will host an IPL 2021 match. The pitch should be fresh and full of runs. The last two T20Is at this ground were won by the team batting first. A first-innings score of about 160 should be competitive.

Weather conditions: The forecast suggests very hot conditions in excess of 40 degrees celsius in Ahmedabad on Monday. There is no rain predicted. Humidity levels should be relatively low, though, so the dew factor might not be too much of a problem for the team bowling second.

Punjab Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders – Team News

  • KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal – the Kings have a formidable opening pair in Rahul and Agarwal, so much so that Chris Gayle is batting in the middle order.
  • Mohammad Shami – The Punjab star is a genuine fast bowler, not just another seamer. He’ll be keen to exploit the new conditions in Ahmedabad.
  • Nitish Rana – The KKR batsman started the IPL 2021 with a bang on the back of two half-centuries, but has since failed on a couple of occasions. He needs to bounce back.
  • Eoin Morgan – Captaining Kolkata ahead of Dinesh Karthik, Morgan needs to justify the decision with runs and a victory.
  • Pat Cummins – Kolkata have come to see that the Australian recruit isn’t only valuable with the ball. He can contribute with the bat, too.

Punjab Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more IPL match predictions for you. These are centered around the form and performances of the players. You can trust this free advice.

Bet on Gayle as Top Punjab Batsman

Chris Gayle has taken a while to really get going in this season’s IPL, but showed some of his best in victory over the Mumbai Indians recently.

Gayle has a couple of really solid openers ahead of him in Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul, but he’s still a really good pick at 4.5 with bet365 to be Punjab’s top batsman. This could bring great value.

Make Mavi Kolkata’s Top Bowler

Shivam Mavi came into the XI against the Rajasthan Royals. While he couldn’t prevent defeat, he was impressive with some tight economy and at least one wicket.

He is nicely poised to build on this performance and might only need three wickets for Sportsbet.io’s price of 4.5 to be a winning bet.

Select an Attractive Accumulator

1xBet have over 170 bets available for this match alone. Among these are their attractive and popular accumulator outcomes.

We like their price of 2.0 all four opening batsmen to each reach double figures. If you make the bet, keep your eyes glued to the action to see if it works out. This will be entertaining viewing and betting.
