Cuttack: The erratic Kolkata Knight Riders will look to challenge the seemingly unstoppable force of table-toppers Kings XI Punjab when the two sides clash today.
Given the sparkling form the duo of Glenn Maxwell and David Miller are in, KKR’s bowlers are likely to be put to the sword in today’s game. Out-of-form veteran Virender Sehwag is also slowly rediscovering his touch.
For once, Kolkata’s batting clicked with skipper Gautam Gambhir, who had been facing a barrage of criticism for poor form, leading the way with a half-century. Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey also did their bits to take KKR to an elusive win over Delhi Daredevils and they would be keen to carry that form into the match against Punjab today.
