Robin Uthappa

KKR won the toss and decided to bowl first against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali. The visiting side had two changes as Robin Uthappa made his way back in place of his stand by Sheldon Jackson whereas Kuldeep Yadav once again replaced his senior mate Piyush Chawla.

Kings XI Punjab made a total of four changes, due to the main fact that they neither have Hashim Amla nor David Miller in their side. Swapnil Singh, Rahul Tewatia, Manan Vohra and Matt Henry were the players who made their way to the team,

It’s a do or die game for Kings XI Punjab as just not this, they have to win their next three contests as well in order to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the next round. A loss here for Punjab side will give us four teams for the next round that will be KKR, Sunrise Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant.
