The Kings XI Punjab host the Kolkata Knight Riders in their Indian Premier League campaign at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday, April 19, starting 8 pm IST.
The Kings finally added two points to their “kitty” following a win at home against the “formidable” Pune Supergiants, notes IPLT20 website. After loosing two back to back games, the points would help boost confidence in the Punjab camp when they take on the Knight Riders.
The Knight Riders have registered two convincing victories under their belt, one at home over the Delhi Daredevils and an away win against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The knights failed to win against the Mumbai Indians following the Heroics of Rohit Sharma at Eden Gardens.
As per the ESPN Cricinfo reports, Brad Hogg, who missed the previous game in Hyderabad, might return to the squad and bowl alongside Sunil Narine to lead the perfect spin attack.
Manan Vohra and Glenn Maxwell have been impressive with the bat but the team lacks depth in the bowling department.
On the other hand, the Knights have put on an all-round show and remain only behind Gujarat Lions on the points table.
Stay tuned for more updates.
