Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are geared up to take on Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 42 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the renowned Eden Gardens in Kolkata this Friday, April 26. Sitting comfortably in second place on the points table, KKR will aim to maintain their winning momentum against the struggling PBKS, currently positioned ninth.

Having contested seven matches this season, KKR boasts an impressive record of five victories. Their recent nail-biting encounter against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) saw them clinch victory by a mere one run in a high-scoring thriller. In contrast, PBKS has struggled, managing only two wins out of their eight matches.

In their previous outing against Gujarat Titans (GT), the Shashank Singh-Ashutosh Sharma duo faltered, resulting in a narrow three-wicket defeat for PBKS. With KKR having won 21 of their head-to-head encounters against PBKS, compared to PBKS’s 11 victories, the odds seem stacked in favor of Shreyas Iyer’s squad.
