KKR vs KXIP Live Stream Match-11 IPL 2017 Prediction, Preview - Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab Live Score Telecast Info
Vivo IPL 2017 will be played between one time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab. The Kolkata Knight Riders will play their first home fixture of VIVO IPL 2017 when they take on Kings XI Punjab on Thursday evening.
KKR have one win from two outings so far this season. The two-time champions will still be hurting from their narrow defeat to the Mumbai Indians on Sunday night. KKR, after setting a target of 179, had MI on the mat at 119-5. The hosts needed an improbable 64 from the final five overs, yet got past the finish line with one ball to spare.
Kolkata Knight Riders have themselves to blame; they were guilty of dropping a catch and conceded crucial runs through misfields at important junctures in the match.Chris Lynn, the team’s top run-getter, is unavailable after dislocating his shoulder in the previous match, and that is certainly a huge blow to the team. KKR could therefore revert to the reliable opening pair of Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa, and accommodate the exciting Colin de Grandhomme, who has a T20 batting strike-rate of 171, in the middle order.
Under new captain Glenn Maxwell, KXIP have posted two convincing wins and look a very good unit. It is perhaps the influence of mentor Virender Sehwag that the KXIP players have expressed themselves without any inhibitions and have executed their skills without any pressure of failure. They were clinical in their season opener against Rising Pune Supergiant, after which they strolled to an eight-wicket win against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The team is operating like a well-oiled unit, with both Indian and overseas players contributing with the bat, while the bowling attack – comprising largely an Indian contingent, has performed admirably in keeping the opponents to modest totals.
- Gambhir's Kolkata Knight Riders Team has a quite good batting line up which could destroy any bowling attack, The batsmen are Gautam Gambhir, Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa.
- Talking about Batting lineup of Kings XI Punjab, they have preety good batting lineup which include Glenn Maxwell, Eoin Morgan and David Miller.
