Both the Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have had a poor start to their 2021 Indian Premier League campaigns, but there is one difference between them. Punjab Kings, who had only won one of their first four games, played beautifully in their final game to defeat defending champions Mumbai Indians.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders have shown no signs of revival, as they failed to perform in their most recent match, which was against Rajasthan Royals. Given the two teams’ current styles, the Kings are unquestionably the favourites. Eoin Morgan and his teammates will do their best to avoid losing five games in a row.
Ahmedabad is expected to have a hot evening, with an average temperature of about 40 degrees Celsius. Although there shouldn’t be much dew, the captain who wins the toss will choose to chase.
In Ahmedabad, the wicket should be balanced, with something for both seamers and spinners. Though the pitch will be a little slower at first, batters should have no trouble settling in. A total of 170-180 runs may be considered competitive.
