IPL 2019: 6th Match, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab – Match Preview, Prediction, Predicted XI, Stats; Now, its time to watch two teams in the action, who won their respective games from the jaws of the defeat. Once again, the iconic Eden Gardens set to host the intriguing clash.

In what was a very evenly matched contest between Sunrisers Hyderabad and hosts Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday at the Eden Gardens, KKR snatched a morale-boosting victory.

The Knight Riders will now play Kings XI Punjab for their second consecutive home game at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday, March 27.

On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab displayed a fine piece of death bowling to defend such a tally on the board. However, the controversy took the boost, as Ashwin affected a Mankad to dismiss Jos Buttler.

Buttler was looking in imperious touch with 69 from 43 balls and Rajasthan well on course to overhaul the target of 185 but following the dismissal they went on to lose eight wickets for 62 runs to hand Kings XI Punjab their maiden win in Jaipur.

Kolkata Knight Riders got off to a winning start in their first game against last year’s finalists Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. After bowling first, SRH raced away in the beginning with the returning David Warner smashing 85 runs to take Hyderabad to 181 in their 20 overs.

However,  KKR showed the strength of their side with a composed run chase that saw Nitish Rana setting up the innings. With the required rate still over 10 runs an over, all-rounder, Andre Russell switched gears to take KKR to chase the target.

Changes:

Most Probably, both the sides would go with the same XI, as they fetched victories for the team. Unless any forced injuries, both the teams would go into the game without any changes to their previous lineups.
