IPL 2021, Match 21: PBKS vs KKR


Guwahati: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) campaign has gone from bad to worse in the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The team, led by Eoin Morgan, is currently placed at the bottom of the points table with a net run rate of -0.675 after their six-wicket loss at the hands of Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Saturday, April 24.

For PBKS, Deepak Hooda, who has not done much after one impressive innings, will have to step up if Punjab want to perform consistently. The place of Nicholas Pooran, who has scored 0, 0, 9, 0, in the playing XI is expected to be under review though his turn did not come in the last match. The Punjab bowlers, who have been pedestrian in earlier matches, came good in their last match with the talented Ravi Bishnoi (2/21) and senior India pacer Mohammad Shami (2/21) leading the charge. Young Arshdeep Singh has been a consistent bowler with six wickets from five matches.
