KKR vs PBKS 42nd Live IPL Match Today – Star Sports HD– Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings Live Match Online

KKR vs PBKS – Here, the ESPALACE team is going to inform you like Preview, H2H, Playing 22, Live Scorecard, Live Streaming and all other important points of the match.


The IPL 2024 season has gone along similar lines to previous years for the Punjab franchise as their side battles inconsistencies to find themselves at the bottom half of the table. With just two wins from eight games, Punjab Kings aren’t far away from elimination and it is in such a scenario that they are set to visit the Eden Gardens for the clash against Kolkata Knight Riders. PBKS may have lost six of their eight games but they’ve been in the contest till the end in most of these games, only to end on the wrong side of it more often than not.

The lack of form of the top-order will be in focus for Punjab whose batting has been carried by their middle-order players with sizeable contributions from Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma. Against a potent KKR bowling unit, PBKS will need their batting to fire in unison to stand a chance, particularly with the batting-friendly conditions at the venue. In comparison to their batting, the Kings’ bowling has fared better and performed better relatively through the season thus far. That said, there is a definite scope for improvement with the ball too.

On paper, both sides are well-rounded although KKR do hold a narrow edge due to their recent form. This promises to be a cracking encounter between two entertaining sides.

This promises to be a nail-biting encounter, where every ball could be the turning point. So, buckle up, cricket fans, and get ready for a T20 extravaganza!
