IPL 2022 – Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings: Punjab started their campaign with a victory. The only concern was the bowling in the 1st match against RCB where they gave up over 200 runs.

But South African speedster Kagiso Rabada is now back in the LINE-UP and PBKS will try to continue the SUPER-IMPRESSIVE show in the 2nd match.

Succeeding at the Wankhede, where the course is relatively new, has not been easy as can be seen in the two matches played at the venue so far.

It may still be early in the two-month IPL, but the toss already plays a major role in the outcome of the game with dew coming into play in the second half of the game.

KKR full squad: Kolkata’s openers Ajinkya Rahane and the attacking Venkatesh Iyer died cheaply against RCB and the duo are said to be looking for a strong start to the team.

While skipper Shreyas Iyer, who was in good form despite the failure against RCB, would be an important cog in the wheel but would need support from the likes of Nitish Rana.

For left-handed Rana, consistency would be key. Aside from the duo, the middle-order responsibility must be borne by Sam Billings, Sheldon Jackson and the big hit Andre Russell.

KKR’s lineup has batters ready to take on any attack and management hopes they will all fire at the same time on Punjab.

On the bowling front, pacemaker Umesh Yadav was outstanding in both games with the new ball. Experienced Kiwi bowler Tim Southee, who replaced Shivam Mavi and took three wickets, also plays a key role up front.

The concern for Kolkata would be in the form of spinner Varun Chakaravarthy, who needs to hit the belts quickly.

For Punjab, a lot would depend on how their top three – skipper Mayank Agarwal, flamboyant Shikhar Dhawan and Sri Lankan Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who played a match-winning cameo against RCB – perform.

While head coach Anil Kumble would have expected more mid-range contributions, Odean Smith and Shahrukh Khan proved their mettle as they sent the squad home against RCB and are eager to be back on the points.
It remains to be seen if Under-19 World Cup star Raj Bawa, who failed on IPL debut, will get another chance.

Punjab bowlers came up against a marauding Faf Du Plessis in the first game and players like Sandeep Sharma, Arshdeep Singh and Odean Smith would have to up their game against KKR.

The eight overs of the spin duo Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar could also make a difference in the game.
