The eighth match for IPL 2022 will be played tonight at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium in which Punjab Kings will be facing Kolkata Knight riders. This is going to be the third match for Kolkata Knight Riders and the second match for Punjab Kings. In this match, Kolkata Knight Riders will be desperate to get back on track with the massive win against the opponent team. After winning the 1st match, KKR’s spirits are high. This is going to be an interesting match as KKR lost their second match to Royal Challengers and Banglore in the final over.
On the other hand, the Punjab Kings are confident after a moral-boosting win against RCB. Punjab King’s batters had put forward an excellent performance in their earlier match. Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal has made 71 runs in the opening of the match.
Punjab would now be eyeing to get a second straight win under their belt. This match will take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium on the first of April at 7:30 PM IST. The match will be live-streamed on the star sports Network for Television and on Disney+ Hotstar app for live streaming on mobile.
In the earlier matches of Punjab Kings, Shikhar Dhawan appeared donning the Punjab Jersey for the first time during the opening against the Royal challengers. Dhawan scored a great performance with 43 runs off 29 balls. The duo of Shikhar and Mayank Agarwal are yet again to be expected to perform ballistic performances against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
The pitch of Wankhede is a perfect battling surface for batters and is expected well set at the crease. Therefore the teams do not hesitate to bat first during postmeridian games, the same thing in case during the evening matches as the humidity factor makes its presence felt at this venue. While the captain that wins the toss would likely to bowl first.
