Pitch & Condition 

There is plenty of help for bowlers, and it is difficult for batters to come in and immediately smash fours and sixes. Matches can be won by keeping wickets in hand until the very end. KKR vs PBKS, 8th Match- Prediction

The par score is expected to be in the range of 170-180. 

The temperature is forecast to be approximately 31°C, with 53 per cent humidity and a wind speed of 11 km/hr. During the game, there are no chances of rain. 

Toss Prediction 

Chasing is the best option because teams haven’t been confident in any of the targets set in previous matches. So far this season, chasing teams have a 5-1 win-loss record. 

According to toss prediction, Kolkata Knight Riders will win the toss and bowl first.

Team Analysis

Kolkata Knight Riders

The riders’ most recent battle versus RCB was thrilling, but they lost in the final over. Kolkata’s batting line is robust, with players like Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine, Shreyas Iyer, Andre Russell, and Rahane. Still, they only scored 128 runs, and their entire squad was dismissed in 18.5 overs. Russell was the leading run-scorer with a total of 25 runs. We’re not suggesting they have a poorer batting lineup, but they must play patiently, and their top order, in particular, must spend time on the wicket. 

We believe that the KK Riders’ team management will make some changes to the starting eleven for this encounter, given it is only the first, and they need to test their bench strength. KKR’s bowling unit did well, but they could not defend a low target on the board. Tim Southee was their most successful bowler, taking three wickets in four overs bowled out for 20 runs. Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy took one wicket, while Umesh Yadav took two. 

Top players to bet on- Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine, Shreyas Iyer. 

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings made some clever moves in the IPL auctions 2022. We witnessed the results in the first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, a powerful club in this IPL edition, particularly their batting order. Their bowling squad had a poor showing, allowing 205 runs to be scored against them. Rahul Chahar, Odean Smith, Arshdeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma, and Harpreet Brar are among the top T20 bowlers in the world. Liam Livingstone was also utilised as a bowler. Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar took one wicket, but the rest of the bowling staff failed to pick up a single wicket. 

Although Punjab Kings’ batting order is ordinary, they fared admirably in their first encounter. With six balls remaining, they turned an unattainable aim into a realistic one, chasing a massive target of 206 runs. We’re not talking about individual accomplishments because practically every batter on their team scored runs. Mayank Agarwal scored 32 runs with two boundaries and the same massive sixes as Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Shikhar Dhawan. On only eight balls, Odean Smith hit 25 runs. 

Top players to bet on – Mayank Agarwal, Kagiso Rabada, Odean Smith.
