Punjab Kings Team News

Punjab Kings are having yet another disappointing season this year and things are not looking good for them. They suffered another loss in the league against Gujarat Titans in the previous fixture.

The decision to bat first worked against the team and the middle order was a complete failure. Sam Curran (20 off 19) and Prabhsimran Singh (35 off 21) started off well but once their partnership was broken, things went out of control. The whole middle order was decimated for a score of 29 runs.

On the bowling front, Harshal Patel came out as the top bowler and picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 5. Liam Livingstone scalped 2 wickets at an economy of 4.75. Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran took a single wicket each at an economy of 7.85 and 9. Kagiso Rabada came out as the most expensive bowler with an economy of 10.

Punjab Kings Lineup Prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings Betting Tips

Punjab Kings are without Shikhar Dhawan and that has disrupted their batting lineup. They also don’t have a strong spin attack and hence the team comes out weak during the middle overs.

Kolkata Knight Riders are enjoying the ongoing season of IPL and their players have got the right rhythm. Facing Punjab will be an easy task for them and we predict a win for KKR on Friday.

Punjab Kings have struggled in the top order and they lost their first wicket at an average of 15.4 runs in the last 5 fixtures.

The betting tip is...

First innings - Punjab Kings total at first dismissal will be under 20.5.
