IPL 2021: PBKS vs KKR preview, find out match prediction, predicted XI and head-to-head stats

Two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face Punjab Kings (PBKS), captained by KL Rahul in the 21st match of IPL 2021 today at 7:30 pm in Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium.

The road to IPL 2021 playoffs is getting tougher with every game for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). KKR is at the bottom spot in the table with just one win in a total of five matches. Liam Livingstone flew back to England due to the fatigue caused by the bio bubble over the past year. In such a situation, the team's strength seems to have taken a hit. KKR arrive in the match after suffering four consecutive defeats.

Punjab started the tournament with a win but after that, they had to face defeat in three consecutive matches. The team, however, managed to break the order by defeating Mumbai Indians by nine wickets on Friday. The team will now look to win against KKR, who have lost their last four matches.

Ahmadabad ground has both red and black soil pitches, with the latter offering variable bounce. The playing XIs of both sides will depend upon the kind of pitch being rolled out. During India vs England T20I series, teams were able to cross the mark of 160 runs. So the match between PBKS vs KKR is expected to be a high scoring affair.


Our match prediction meter is telling that Kolkata Knight Riders will win in this match. However, the match is expected to be exciting. Anyway, even though Punjab Kings have the upper hand in batting, KKR's team is much stronger in bowling.
