KXIP vs KKR Match Preview
The defending champions Mumbai Indians go through another loss and now they might hit the panic button. Sunrisers Hyderabad registered a comprehensive win over Mumbai Indians to nail their first win in the IPL 2016. Will we see another dramatic bounce back from Mumbai Indians this year? Well, one can't predict anything in cricket. Talking about today's match; Kings XI Punjab face Kolkata Knight Riders at Mohali. Watch live streaming and score of KXIP vs KKR on HotStar. Live telecast will be available on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN HD.
Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders have had contradicting fortunes so far. KKR has dominated all the matches sans one, while KXIP have lost all sans one. Kolkata Knight Riders posted a good total against Mumbai Indians, but it was Rohit Sharma's day and nothing could stop him from taking his team home. That was they only loss KKR has seen so far. Kings XI Punjab have won their only match against Rising Pune Supergiants. Dhoni's men couldn't post a big total and KXIP loooked comfortable chasing down the target. This must bring some cheer in the Punjab's camp.
Gautam Gambhir is in a supreme form. Typical Gambir! What a way to bat. He has been calm and composed all the way so far. He seems to be a man on mission. He is trying to bat till the end and take his team home. He is the key to Kolkata Knight Rider's win tonight.
Our Lions face the @KKRiders today at Mohali. Sheron, wish the team good luck! #KXIPvKKR pic.twitter.com/UOQxQJ368V— Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 19, 2016
For Punjab, Miller or Maxwell has to click. Even Marsh can chip in with a good knock. Maxwell looked disappointing in the first two matches. He found form when he played against Pune Supergiants. KXIP think tank would be relieved to see Manan Vohra in form. One can expect a blistering innings from him at Mohali tonight.
KKR would be proud of the bowling strength too. If they can restrict the batting heavy Punjab side to a below par total, they can view a win. Sunil Narine is back into the playing XI. He is taking his own time to be settled in his remodeled bowling action. Umesh Yadav and Morne Morkel are doing a good job so far for the team.
