Between 8pm on Eden Gardens between two teams today
Highest score of 200 or more of both teams at Eden Gardens
In such a situation, while the entire focus of the world is on the manner of Jos Buttler being dismissed, Kings XI Punjab will have done some introspection after the match in Jaipur. This is a tough time for them, but all the tiredness of the team will be overcome by the form of Gayle, Mujib, Ashwin and Sarfaraz.
Sarfraj Smart player, they are in good rhythm
I have no problem in accepting that I was surprised by the selection of Sarfaraz with very little experience, but he is appearing in the good rhythm. Inside there is a quiz and an audacity. They showed that they are smart too. However, he was also helped by the fact that on the other side Chris Gayle was becoming destroyer. But the manner in which they led the Kings XI innings, the difference between the two teams was the same.
Little mistake will make Punjab very heavy
Until Butler and Ajinkya Rahane, and after that Sanju Samson was on the crease, the Punjab bowling was very limited. The Kolkata Knight Riders have a very strong batting line-up. These shortcomings of bowling against them can be exposed at large level.
Kolkata has a lot of options in bowling
Sam Quair will soon catch the rhythm, because performing at the IPL is not easy at all. However, Kurien will have to do so soon as he is the key link to the team's balance of the team. Kolkata also have their own problems in the bowling department, but they have seven bowlers to share the burden. When choosing a player, he has been intelligent. Seeing Kolkata's strong batting and firepower, it is difficult to set any goal against them.
Gale-Russell's form to be beneficial for Punjab
If the team of Punjab bats first, then he has to score more than 180 on the Eden Gardens. The good news for fans is that both Gail and Russell are in the form. The Caribbean players have illuminated the IPL in the past years with the glare of their performance. If these two players do this again, then I will not be surprised at all.
