In the 45th match of IPL-14, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face each other in Dubai on Friday. A ‘do or die’ match will be played today for the Punjab team led by KL Rahul to remain in the playoff race.
The match will start at 7.30 pm Indian time. KKR is currently fourth in the points table with 10 points. KKR has lost 6 out of 11 matches. While Punjab has lost 7 matches in the same number of matches and is in the sixth position. This match is very important for both the teams.
After the loss to Mumbai Indians (MI), KL Rahul admitted that his team was not playing well under pressure and would have to improve. The poor form of the middle order has also affected the team’s performance. With the exception of Rahul (422) and Mayank Agarwal (332), no batsman was able to impress.
