Kolkata Knight Riders v Rising Pune Supergiant prediction from Shruti Chopra. Read on or listen to her podcast on the game right here:
The Rising Pune Supergiant are closing in on the third position on the points table. Can Pune continue their upward trend?
Well let’s begin with the Knight Riders, their batting appears to start off with a certain ease and then just takes off, but they may just find themselves having to fight a lot harder in those final overs. Bowling appears most impressive as it’s well controlled, it’s as if they understand and utilise the conditions to the best of their abilities.
The Rising Pune Supergiant seem to have the right plans in place and the right intention too, but will they be able to execute it? Well, upto a certain point, but where they could falter most is with their bowling which seems inconsistent and may give away too many freebies. When it comes to their batting, they may just have a tough start and it could be tougher for them to recover in time.
I’m going to go with the team that should be most balanced, and so, it’s tarot advantage: Kolkata Knight Riders.
