Today we have Kings XI Punjab going over Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. Both of them won their first matches in a fantastic manner. KKR won because of the heroics of Andre Rusell while KXIP’s win over RR was a result of Chris Gayle’s batting at the top. However, there were some things in the match between KXIP and RR that divided the whole cricketing fraternity into two halves.

Today’s match is in Kolkata and that will be an advantage for KKR. But there below par bowling in the last match showed the weakness of the team. If KXIP bats like they did in last game then it would be difficult for KKR to stop them. But then too KKR will be favorite in the game because of the home advantage and also the depth that they have in their batting. One interesting fact about today’s game is that both the captain is from Tamil Nadu.

Both the team played well in the last match so no major changes should be there today in the playing XI.
