Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are gearing up to face each other at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali in the first of the double header matches today. This exciting encounter is scheduled for today at 3:30 PM IST.
As Punjab Kings host Kolkata Knight Riders on April 1, they are determined to begin their campaign with a win. Both teams have new captains this season: Shikhar Dhawan heads the Mohali-based squad, while Nitish Rana takes charge of Kolkata in the absence of Shreyas Iyer. Punjab’s four overseas players are likely to be Sam Curran, Sikandar Raza, Nathan Ellis, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa.
Key players for Kolkata Knight Riders include Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Shakib Al Hasan, while Punjab Kings’ top contributors are Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, and Kagiso Rabada. Sam Curran, especially, will be vital for Punjab, as the England all-rounder has recently demonstrated exceptional form in T20 cricket.
