Now all the matches have shifted from Mumbai and Chennai to Ahmedabad and Delhi. These new stadiums will have an impact on the team's performance. Till now teams have to adjust for new pitches and new stadiums.

The 21st match of the Indian Premier League is to be played in the all-new Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad. In this match, Punjab Kings will be playing against the Kolkata Knight Riders. In the 5 matches they have played, Kolkata Knight Riders won only a match and Punjab Kings won a couple of matches till now.

Eventually, one team will win and secures two points after winning the match. This match is important for both teams to stay alive in this tournament.

Punjab Kings 

In the last match, Punjab Kings won the match against the Mumbai Indians and claimed their 2nd win in the tournament. PBKS players are making most of their blunders when the pressure is on. This is making them vulnerable during the match.

They have got good openers and a good bowling squad and can reach the scores the opposition has set for them. But in the process, the team is failing somewhere. 

The middle-order is concerning for the PBKS, Nicholas Pooran has gone for duck 3 times in the last four matches which the team has to look after.

After finding the good bowling combination with Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin the team can do wonders in the middle overs if their plan goes well against the KKR.

Probable Playing11

1 KL Rahul (capt & wk), 2 Mayank Agarwal, 3 Chris Gayle, 4 Nicholas Pooran, 5 Deepak Hooda, 6 Shahrukh Khan, 7 Moises Henriques, 8 Jhye Richardson/Chris Jordan, 9 Ravi Bishnoi, 10 Mohammed Shami, 11 Arshdeep Singh

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders just won their only match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their first match this season. They have got superb openers and a good bowling lineup but they are failing to secure a win for the team.

The openers are losing their wickets early in the matches, which is increasing the pressure on the batsmen coming next. This pressure is making them lose wickets. Every game needs a good start for a clear and neat win at the end. But the KKR players are failing to do so.

In the match against CSK, the team fought till the last moment and they are inches closer to victory but, due to bad decisions, they have lost a game. They have got batsmen with firepower in their batting lineup but the fire isn't quite igniting when required.

Their bowling lineup is taking wickets regularly but not when they needed the wicket most. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Squad

Probable Playing 11

 1 Nitish Rana, 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Rahul Tripathi, 4 Eoin Morgan (capt), 5 Andre Russell, 6 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 7 Sunil Narine, 8 Pat Cummins, 9 Shivam Mavi, 10 Prasidh Krishna, 11 Varun Chakravarthy
