Team Kolkata’s beleaguered Indian T20 League campaign could take a new turn when they take on Punjab at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday, April 26.
Punjab, on the flip side, ended their three-match losing streak with a comprehensive nine-wicket win over defending champions Mumbai. The Punjab bowlers, who have failed to instill a threat in the last few games, scalped a wicket in each of the last four overs against Mumbai and that is a timely improvement given the team chasing a top-four finish.
Punjab and Kolkata will play the first-ever Indian T20 League fixture at the world’s biggest stadium, which has a spin-friendly reputation. Nonetheless, both pacers and spinners are guaranteed to get something out of the pitch on Monday.
The likes of Chris Gayle and Andre Russell will fancy big knocks, but there could be some twists from the spells by Kolkata’s Sunil Narine and Punjab’s Arshdeep Singh.
Contrary to their form this term, Kolkata lead the head-to-head record against KL Rahul’s men, with 18 wins in 27 matches, and seek a win not only to consolidate the tally but keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Watch Punjab vs Kolkata live!
