Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa(w), Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Raj Bawa, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar

Kolkata Knight Riders: Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer(c), Sam Billings(w), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakaravarthy

Kolkata Knight Riders won their first game versus Chennai Super Kings at this same stadium, but their hit batting strategy did not pay off, as KKR lost their second game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Punjab Kings won their first match of the IPL 2022 season by chasing down a massive 206-run total with an over to go, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The fact that Kagiso Rabada has finished his mandated isolation time and will be eligible for the Punjab Kings’ IPL match against KKR today is a major boost for the squad.
