Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

Kings XI Punjab has been the most active franchise in the last few auctions and, to be honest, this is not something to be extremely proud of. This just shows how they have been constantly chopping and changing their squad and as a result, have not really found a team balance that works for them. On the contrary, Kolkata Knight Riders have had a fairly stable side over the years and thanks to that, they won two titles as well. However, with no title over the last 5 seasons, they are now pretty much in a desperate zone of trying to get hold of the trophy once again.

Over the last two years, KL Rahul has been their standout player with a phenomenal run in both seasons. However, the constant changing and chopping of the side have led to a weak bowling and batting department that more often than not, does not complement each other. As a result, they have brought in the “Big Show” Glen Maxwell to add stability in the middle order and the likes of Sheldon Cottrell and Chris Jordan in the bowling department. For KKR, there has been a pool of young players who have been coming through the ranks but Dinesh Karthik has to pull up his socks and deliver as a captain. The new signings, Pat Cummins, Eoin Morgan, and Tom Banton should provide more firepower for the KKR side. 

When we look at their head to head record, KKR has dominated the side from the North as they have won 17 of the 25 matches they have played. It would be interesting to see how they fare this time around with both teams looking good quite solid on paper.
