KKR had won the toss & elected to bowl first. It was a collective effort by Punjab Kings (PBKS) batters where they scored 191-5.

Shikhar Dhawan & Bhanuka Rajapaksa were involved in a huge partnership of 86 runs.

It won’t be easy for the likes of skipper Nitish Rana & powerful hitter Andre Russell as PBKS bowlers are bowling immaculate lines & lengths. KKR have used Venkatesh Iyer as their impact player in the place of Varun Chakravarthy and he would be keen to make a case for himself.

PBKS skipper Shikhar Dhawan would be quite aware of the fact that they need to keep on picking wickets as KKR bat very deep & have got multiple match winners where there aren’t any significant demons in the pitch.
