Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing their third game of the season on 1st April, Friday against Punjab Kings at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. It will be Mayank Agarwal’s side second game of the IPL 2022 after they won the first one against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Shreyas Iyer’s side lost their second game which was against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Their batting was really poor against RCB, so it is quite possible that they will change their team a bit, but due to their amazing performance they can go with the same XI.
Predicted Kolkata Knight Riders XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Sam Billings, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy.
On the other side, Punjab Kings will come into this match after winning a high-scoring game against RCB. Starting from Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Mayank Agarwal, their team looks perfect. There’s still a possibility that they will change their bowling line-up a bit as their bowlers were very expensive in the last game.
Predicted Punjab Kings XI: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (wk), Liam Livingstone, Raj Bawa, Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Harpreet Brar, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar, Sandeep Sharma.
