KKR vs PBKS Match Prediction & Preview


The Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings are set to clash heads on Friday when they battle it out at the Dubai International Stadium.

Eoin Morganโ€™s side caused a major upset, downing the Delhi Capitals by three wickets with just 10 balls remaining. Although Morgan has found it tough going recently, scoring below 10 in his last four innings.

They have put themselves in a strong position to make the playoffs this season, being the only team with a positive net run rate of any side below 2nd. They face three sides sitting below them to finish off the season.

Meanwhile, the Punjab Kings fell to a disappointing defeat by six wickets against the Mumbai Indians. Their poor fielding display cost them in crucial stages of the match, with Hardik Pandya punishing them towards the end of the innings.

Their third loss in their past four matches has left them in serious jeopardy with only three matches left of the season. If they are going to make the playoffs this season, they need to win at least two of their remaining matches.

The Knight Riders should have the form to get the two points against the Punjab Kings on Friday.
