Squad Comparison for Punjab Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders
Punjab Kings have a batting powerhouse with some big-hitting T20 players from around the world. They finished at number 6 last season with just 7 wins from 14 matches. One more win and the Kings would have been through to the playoffs. Kings will be eager to turn things around this year under Dhawan’s captaincy.
Jonny Bairstow’s absence will leave a big vacancy in the PBKS batting lineup this season. PBKS vs KKR, Matthew Short is an impressive opening batsman who’s delivered some fine knocks for Adelaide Strikers. However, he will likely fall short of filling in Baristow’s shoes in this lineup. The Mohali pitch is good for batting and that’s where Short can get going and find the rhythm.
Punjab Kings Playing XI
Shikhar Dhawan (c), Matthew Short, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Harpreet Brar, Sam Curran, Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar
Kolkata Knight Riders
Shreyas Iyer’s injury has led to a change in captaincy in the KKR camp. Previously, when Iyer was the DC captain, an injury paved the way for Rishabh Pant to become the DC captain. And from there on, Iyer struggled to get back in the side and was finally let go.
KKR has a great overall squad with a fine balance in every department. PBKS vs KKR, There are some young and talented players like Venkatesh Iyer, Rana, and Rinku Singh who need to lead KKR with their batting effort. Rinku Singh showed his big-hitting abilities last season and will likely get a place in the XI for this match. Shakib Al Hasan has found his way back to KKR after missing the last season.

Mandeep Singh, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana (c), Shakib Al Hasan, N Jagadeesan (wk), Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, David Wiese, Sunil Narine, Shardul Thakur, Umesh Yadav
Punjab Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match Prediction
Though it is a home game for Punjab Kings, we don’t reckon any clear advantage for the team. PBKS vs KKR, Going by the squad strength, KKR looks much better on paper. They’ve got experienced players in every department who’ve been part of the KKR camp for quite a long time. The batting lineup is deep and there’s variety in the bowling attack. Punjab Kings are missing one of their best batters while others aren’t in their best form currently.
