KKR vs PBKS Predictions 2022

KKR vs KXIP Predictions

Kolkata Knight Riders will face the Punjab Kings (previously known as Kings XI Punjab or KXIP) for the 8th match of the IPL 15th edition. KKR is said to be having a slight edge over PBKS this season.

Betting Tips: KKR have retained their key players from the last edition who brought them to the IPL Final. On the other hand, PBKS have totally revamped the team, with just two players from last season’s line-up.
Betting Odds: KKR to win @ 2.15 @ Betway

PBKS has strong opening pair in Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow. We also should not discount the fact that the skipper Mayank Agarwal is coming in at no. 3. The team has proven its worth in the season opener match against RCB which PBKS won by 5 wickets.

Despite finishing 4th in last season's standings, KKR managed to enter the Indian Premier League Final in 2021. For that reason alone, KKR has established itself as one contender to look out for in this 15th edition. One catch about KKR is: their core players like Andre Russel, Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer and Sunil Narine are back for the team.

KKR vs PBKS Predictions 2022 - Their History 

The two teams have faced each other 29 times. 19 of them were won by Kolkata, whereas the Punjab have only secured 10 wins. Nevertheless, those stats will not define this year’s matchup as PBKS are getting a new line-up ahead of the 2022 season.
