Kings XI Punjab v Kolkata Knight Riders is up next, and Shruti is going to try improve her recent form and predict this game. Read on or listen to her podcast here:
Kings XI Punjab had a terrible time against the Gujarat Lions on Sunday – dropped catches really hurt them, but will they be able to put all that behind them considering they still do have the opportunity to place a challenge for the 4th spot.
Punjab appear to be temperamental, meaning, they’ll lack consistency. There will be moments of brilliance, where you would assume that this could be their turning point, and then it may just go all wrong again. They appear to start well with the bat but they may not capitalise in those final overs. It’s the bowlers that could keep them in the hunt for those two points.
Kolkata, on the other hand start off looking temperamental, but then they should gather themselves well and push through with aggressive intent. Batting seems to start and end well, but the middle overs could be dicey. Bowling could be a little too defensive in the beginning but then it should correct itself and do fairly well.
As for tarot advantage, it’s Kolkata Knight Riders.
