IPL 2019 – A sneak peek before the match between KXIP and KKR
The charged up teams with their opening win, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be facing each other today. The amusing similarity for both the teams in their respective games were the West Indies players.
On one side where Chris Gayle played a frizzing knock of 79 off 47 for KXIP standing out to the title ‘Universe Boss‘ given to him. Otherside, Andre Russell played a match-winning knock against SRH. Russell score a 19 ball 49 when KKR was in the need of a star performer which led KKR to win their first match. Interestingly Chris Gayle has also been a part of KKR and played many power packed knocks for them too.
The fixture between both the teams is to take place today at 8 pm at Eden Gardens which is the home ground for KKR.
Both the teams have a collection of the most brutal hitters and quality spinners in their squad. KXIP will be relying on Gayle, KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran for big hits and KKR responsibility will be most likely be on the shoulders of Russell, Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn.
KXIP bowler, Ravichandran Ashwin who is surrounded with controversies all over due to the Mankad moment in the previous match against Rajasthan Royals. Ashwin who dismissed Jos Buttler as he was out of crease even before the ball though it was within the rules, RR coach felt it against sportsmanship of cricket. Ashwin must be keen on putting the controversies to rest and starting off fresh.
Eden Gardens is set to rock with the teams in sparkling energy from their first match and players in good form of cricket.
