Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab

Kolkata vs Punjab Cricket Live Streaming

Match number 35 - Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab
Venue - Eden Gardens Kolkata

Kolkata Knight Riders are yet to perform as the defending champions. After couple of wins they have lost five matches and now it seems hard to recover for them. Things are absolutely not yet over for them but all they need is a streak of wins now. They played their last match against Mumbai Indians back home and scored 159. Although they took the match to the last over but ultimately they lost. 

Somehow the team's composition isn't allowing a comfortable top order entry to Brandon McCullum. It would be a shocker for KKR if Kallis or Tiwary won't play due to injury but again it could be a blessing if McCullum sneaks in and performs better. Gautam Gambhir's presence at the top of the order has been a comfort for the team but the other batsmen haven't supported him well.
Kings XI Punjab have overall performed well with four wins and three losses. They won two matches recently one against the Pune Warriors and the other against Delhi Daredevils. Kings XI Punjab have thrived on some good performances by youngsters in the batting and a good bowling department to support.

David Miller and Mandeep Singh have performed exceptionally well in the recent matches. Always a lot has been expected from Adam Gilchrist but this year he has hardly contributed with his bat. He has to come in handy with some more runs to contribute to the wins. A batsman of his calibre in form can turn tables on the opposition.

It would be a great contest between the Punjab batsmen and purple cap holder Sunil Narine. Head to head count is equal for both the teams at five matches each. Winner today here at the Eden Gardens will move a win ahead of the other. Keep enjoying IPL live streaming 2013 cricket online.
