Latest result of Kolkata
This year KKR got a new captain and they won their first match and lost their 2nd match. Batting order was very good in the first match but the same order failed to score big runs in their second match. So due to hitting a low score with 128 runs, they lost the match. The cricket betting tips are analyzed based on the teams previous performances and their average economy.
But the bowling order was consistent and gave their best in the 2nd match. Umesh Yadav once again strikes in those matches, he took 2 wickets in his first match with 20 runs and still managed to take another 2 wickets in the 2nd match but this time only with 16 runs. Tim Southee also had a highlight in this previous match as he took 3 wickets with 20 runs.
Latest result of the Punjab
The Punjab batting order is just beyond the expectations. In the previous match they chased 205 runs in just 19 overs. From the top order every player played brilliant innings in this match, it was an outstanding performance from all the top order batsman and middle order.
It was a slight disappointment from the bowling unit, as they gave the huge runs of 205. Having a big score like 200 + is not possible to chase every time. If the bowling squad restricts the opponents to score better runs, then it will help them to achieve their second win.

Our word – Punjab has the better chances to win the match
As we predicted in the previous match, the Kolkata batting order is a bit disappointing as they scored just on the average of 130 runs from both the matches. Currently they need to make a few adjustments to the batting order. Punjab have the maximum chances to win the match if they bowl first.
Because KKR is struggling to make a good score, if PBKS bowls first then they can restrict the opponents score under 150 runs easily. Also, KKR has good chances to secure a win by looking at the bowling side as they were showing consistent gameplay from past two matches, PBKS may struggle to make around 200 runs.
