Ahmedabad gets ready to host its first match of the season as Punjab Kings(PBKS) faces Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) in match number 21 of Dream11 Indian Premier League. On one side we have two-time champions Kolkata, who have lost 4 games in a row and have hit the rock bottom on the points table. Their latest defeat witnessed a very flavourless batting effort from Morgan’s men and it has now become a big Headache for Kolkata.

On the other side standing is Punjab, Who were also going through a lean patch but then tested victory against the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI). Punjab will be coming into this match with a lot of confidence as they would look to continue on their winning run which has just started for them.

One side will be looking to start afresh and try to gain some confidence with a win on their back and the other would be willing to get in the upper half of the table.

Bowlers:

Mohammed Shami: He was back with a bang in the last game after going wicketless in-game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). He picked up two wickets while conceded only 21 runs in his last match.

Varun Chakravarthy: He remains to be the wicket taker for Kolkata at the moment. He has picked up at least one wicket in the last 4 matches he has played for KKR.

Mayank Agarwal: He looked in good nick now after getting 20+ runs in his last three matches. He has also scored a half century in the game against Delhi Capitals (DC).

Chris Gayle: He might have not shown consistency with the bat in the tornament so far but once he is set on the crease it gets difficult to get him out. He played a sensible knck of 43 runs in the last match against Mumbai.

Wicketkeepers:

KL Rahul to lead against KKR

KL Rahul: He is an example of the captain leading from the front. He is also a contender for the Orange cap this season. He scored 60 runs in 52 balls to get his team over the line in the last game.

All- Rounders:

Andre Russell: He has not been quite consistent with the bat and ball this season but has shown signs of getting some form back with the bat. He scored a blazing 54 runs knock from just 22 deliveries against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Deepak Hooda: The track in Ahmedabad has got some assistance for the spinners and it looks like he will play a bigger part not only with the bat but also with the ball in his hand. He has picked up only one wicket so far in the tournament and that too came in the previous match.
