PBKS VS KKR Dream 11 Prediction Match 21 Punjab Kings Vs Kolkata Knight Riders
The 21st match of this IPL season is going to be played between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders on 26th April 2021. Both the teams are equally strong, but, if we look at the previous record of both the teams, then KKR has come as the stronger team than PBKS. So, the chances of winning the match are more for KKR.
Across the 13 IPL seasons so far, KKR has faced Kings XI Punjab for 27 matches so far. Out of which KKR has emerged victorious 18 times completely dominating KXIP. The Kings have been able to bag only 9 victories. The current captain of the Knights is Eoin Morgan, the English Captain in the limited-overs format. KL Rahul would continue with the captaincy of Kings XI Punjab this year.
This match is going to be played between PBKS and KKR on 26th April 202, at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The pitch has been a bowler-friendly track but over the course of time, the pitch lost its spice as it started to slow down.
The weather is expected to be normal with a maximum temperature of 39 degrees Celsius and a minimum temperature of 26 degrees Celsius.
KKR batsman Rinku Singh has been ruled out for the entire season of IPL 2021 due to a knee injury. The two-time champions have signed former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman Gurkeerat Singh Mann as his replacement.
Top Players of PBKS
- KL Rahul has been at the top of his form recently and since joining Kings XI Punjab he has been dominating the IPL. He was the leading run-scorer for KXIP in 2018 and 2019 with 659 and 593 rubs respectively. And, now after being appointed captain, KL gets to prove his abilities as a leader.
- Dawid Malan, Currently the No. 1 ranked batsman in ICC T20I Batting rankings, England’s Dawid Malan will be making his IPL debut in the 2021 season. He will be seen wearing the Punjab Kings colors when he enters the field trying to make the world’s best T20 league by storm as the world’s best T20 batsman at the international level.
Top Players Of KKR
- Andre Russell is the star of KKR. He already established a record in IPL 2019 while he was on a batting rampage as he struck 52 big ones out of the park. Russell was also brilliant with the ball and has won several games for the Knight Riders single-handedly.
- Shubman Gill is the personification of India’s budding young talent. Shubman has been in and out of the Indian National cricket team recently. He would surely like to seize this opportunity and earn himself a berth in the Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 later this year.
