Kings XI Punjab face Kolkata Knight Riders in match number 44 of the Indian Premier League 2018 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. Punjab with six victories from 10 matches are still searching for the consistency which will help them seal a spot in the last four.
Punjab goes into the match having faced an unexpected defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals. It is important that they get more out of players other than openers Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle.
CN’s Dream XI for Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders:
Ravichandran Ashwin (C), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Manzoor Dar, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Karun Nair, Axar Patel, Lokesh Rahul (W), Ankit Rajpoot
Kolkata goes in without much momentum having lost games in recent times rather poorly. The defeat against Mumbai Indians by 102 runs in the last game would have be particularly demoralising. Can they lift themselves up from the disaster?
