PBKS vs KOL Dream11: Two teams that are languishing at the bottom ends of the table will need to step it up here. It is still early days in the competition and still there is a lot to be played and said and done but it is evident that Kolkata is not in the best of their forms right now. Punjab did recover with an imperious win against the Mumbai Indians with 9 wickets still left in the tank. They need to use this as a springboard for better things in this season. Kolkata really need to find a way to win and the Ahmedabad stadium should actually support their style of play as it is a flat pitch

Riley Meredith/Chris Jordan
They have finally found some form here and the addition of Ravi Bishnoi certainly added to their spin artillery. Now it is upto them to adjust to this stadium and be at their best here and be competitive against a tough Kolkata team
KL Rahul – He has been playing his natural game and it has been successful here. He has scored 220 runs already in the tournament and is the second highest run getter so far in the tournament He will be expected to continue his run here and play to his average of 55 and strike rate of 133.
Mayank Agarwal – He is usually the aggressor at the top of the order and is while he bats at a strike rate of 141, he still maintains an average of 26. He has scored 130 runs so far in the tournament.
KOL Probable XI
There are problems aplenty here in this team and they have to see their top players standing up and being counted. You need the likes of Shubhman Gill, Eoin Morgan and Prasidh Krishna standing up now or it will be too late
Nitish Rana –He has been scoring runs at the top of the order and his 186 runs so far are pretty important contributors in the tournament here. He has a strike rate of 123 which he would like to improve upon
Andre Russel – He looks like he is getting into the groove now with 7 wickets in the tournament and 102 runs which he has scored at a strike rate of 156.52 so far. He is their main weapon.
It has all the makings of a high scoring encounter and both these teams are not very good at defending big scores. Punjab however have form on their side so they would look to win this one with KKR reeling. PBKS vs KOL Dream11 today match prediction
