Punjab Kings will be squaring up against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 21st match of IPL 2021 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The match will commence on Monday, April 26 at 07:30 PM IST. Here is PK vs KKR Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
PK vs KKR Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Punjab Kings had played their first 3 games at the Wankhede in Mumbai. They registered a thrilling win over Rajasthan Royals in the opening encounter. PK posted a mammoth total (221) and scraped home by 4 runs in that game. But since then the Punjab franchise have flattered to deceive. They were completely outplayed by CSK in their second game. While they went on to lose against DC even though they were in a dominant position.
PK’s problems have been confounded with their captain KL Rahul’s conservative approach. They will be hoping for him to play his natural game and set the tempo. The Chennai pitch tested PK team even more. PK could score a paltry 120 batting first against SRH. They went on to lose by 9 wickets. PK came roaring back and defeated defending champions Mumbai Indians by 9 wickets. They will be eager to carry on the winning momentum.
Kolkata Knight Riders are languishing at the bottom of the points table. They made a solid start to the tournament defeating SRH in their opening game. But since then KKR have flattered to deceive. They lost a match against MI from a winning position. KKR failed to score 31 runs in the last 5 overs with 7 wickets in hand.
Their bizarre tactics cost them the game against RCB. They conceded 204 runs on the Chennai strip. The score eventually proved to be way above par. KKR were 31-5 chasing 221 against CSK. They staged a wonderful counter-attack to come back in the game. But they eventually lost out since they kept losing wickets.
KKR looked out of place in the match against RR. They showed no intent both with the bat and with the ball. KKR will want to forget that match in a hurry and get their campaign back on track.
