We are here for KKR vs PBKS Today Match Prediction, 45th Match, IPL 2021 Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders had a disastrous first half and even their captain Morgan was not that confident coming into 2nd half but his team has changed the dynamics of the tournament and are favorites for the playoffs spot if they keep up their nerve-racking form. In the last match, they even defeated the Delhi Capitals who are one of the best teams this season which will be a big morale boost for them.

The bowling department was a big question for Knight Riders initially but now their bowling lineup is very much settled and all have performed collectively well. Their batting has not been put on to test yet but Tripathi and Gill have looked solid at the top and in the last match Rana stepped up to take through when things started to become tense.

  • Form Guide- W-L-W-W-L
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have only lost once against Punjab Kings in their last 5 encounters.
  • Kolkata Knight Riders are currently 4th in the table.

Top Batsmen so far in IPL 2021 

  • Rahul Tripathi – 315 runs at  144.49 strike rate
  • Nitish Rana – 279 runs at 126.81 strike rate  
  • Shubhman Gill – 232 runs at 120.20 strike rate    

Top Bowlers so far in IPL 2021

  • Prasiddh Krishna – 12 wickets at 29.5 average 
  • Varun Chakravarthy – 11 wickets at 27.27l average 
  • Andre Russel – 11 wickets at 17 average

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings are still in the race for the top 4 but they need to have luck on their side and if they defeat Kolkata in this match then surely their chances are good. They are on 6th in the points table but if they win this match then they are leveled with points with Kolkata Knight Riders who are 4th in the points table.

Since the restart, they have only won one match which is not an ideal sight if they want to make it to the next round. Their batting order is the biggest question for them as Chris Gayle’s spot at number 3 is not working for them and they are heavily dependent on KL Rahul at the top who is yet to fire in the 2nd half. They are up against in-form Kolkata Knight Riders and they need to be on their toes to defeat a team like them.

  • Form Guide- L-W-L-L-W
  • Punjab Kings will get knocked out if they lose this match.
  • Mayan Agarwal has a batting average of 45.43 in his last 8 IPL innings.

Weather Report

Weather in Dubai will again be very hot and humid and humidity can even cross the 70 percent mark which we have not witnessed yet in this tournament. There are absolutely no chances of rain and wind speed is likely to be around 11 KM/H

  • Rain: 4%
  • Humidity 70%
  • Wind speed: 11 km/h.

Pitch Report

Pitches here have surprisingly been very variable. Sometimes it has been very two-paced and slow but in the last match between Rajasthan and Bangalore, it was a belter of a wicket. The match is likely to be played on the same wicket which was great for batting and the average score will be around 150-160. Captains will look to bowl first as sometimes Dew factor comes into play at night.

KKR vs PBKS– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Kolkata Knight Riders is expected to win the match against Punjab Kings 

KhelTalk experts feel that Punjab Kings will win against Kolkata Knight Riders in this encounter. Punjab Kings are yet to find their ideal eleven whereas Kolkata Knight Riders are on a roll at the moment in 2nd half of the tournament.

They have just defeated probably the strongest team of the tournament, the Delhi Capitals. Kolkata rested Andre Russell but it didn’t affect them as they comfortably won and his return will make them more solid. On the other hand, Punjab Kings are on a brink of getting knocked out and they still don’t know their main eleven. We expect solid Kolkata Knight Riders to defeat Punjab Kings in this encounter.

Top Batsman from Punjab Kings – Aiden Markram(5.00 odds) 

Aiden Markram has surprised everyone with his solid display so far. Unexpectedly has been the most influential batsman for Punjab in the last couple of matches and especially against Mumbai Indians, he played with urgency and composure.

He was an opening batsman but the South African team experimented with him in the middle order and so far he has performed exceedingly well. In the last match, he scored an elegant 42 runs and as he was looking to take on, he lost his wicket attempting a premeditated sweep. Markram has looked good recently and can give you big returns. He is our pick for best batsman from Punjab Kings.

Top Batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders – Rahul Tripathi (4.00 odds)

Rahul Tripathi is another opener who has rejuvenated himself into a good middle-order batsman. Tripathi scored a blazing unbeaten 74 against Mumbai Indians which was just a perfect glimpse of his talent. Against Chennai also, he scored a good 45 runs and now expectations are high from him.

Tripathi is excellent against spinners and always looks to be positive against them. Rahul is in some incredible touch and can give you big returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Kolkata Knight Riders.

Top Bowler from Punjab Kings– Harpreet Brar (4.75 odds)

Harpreet Brar has impressed everyone with his top-notch tight bowling in this tournament. Although he is not a big turner of the ball but can trouble batsmen with his accuracy. The best example was against Royal Challengers Bangalore when he took 3 crucial wickets in the middle overs and broke the backbone of Challengers’ lineup.

Although he has not performed to his potential yet in the UAE but can turn things around in Dubai. Harpreet Brar is a new young sensation and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best bowler from Punjab Kings.

Top Bowler from Kolkata Knight Riders– Sunil Narine (4.00 odds) 

Sunil Narine has again proved his worth in the world’s toughest league this season. He was the talk of the town in the first half when Kolkata Knight Riders opted for Varun Chakravarthy and dropped him from playing XI. He again fought his way up and deservedly won man of the match for his incredible performance in the last match.

He took 2 wickets at an economy of less than 5 on a small ground of Sharjah. Pitch has been slow in this tournament in Dubai and if the same trend continues then Sunil Narine could be the biggest nightmare for Punjab Kings. Sunil Narine is our pick for best bowler from the Kolkata Knight Riders.
