With propositions of such colossal importance at stake, the clash in Punjab is set to be an absolute engrossing encounter. A surface where the batsmen wreak havoc on the bowlers, it looks set to be a fest from the West Indians. Chris Gayle and Andre Russel at either end will open an onslaught on the bowlers, sparing nothing to find the boundary at will.

Nothing new to report from this aspect with the surface expected to be as sluggish, dry and an effervescent one for the batsmen to ply their goods one. Expect this to be at least a 180 plus encounter.

On a batting surface, what sees Punjab go into the match as the second favourite side is their agonising bowling unit. There’s not one bowler who can be banked on to crumble and tumble KKR and as the runs will pour in at will, Punjab will find it an extremely treacherous task to limit the opposition. We expect KKR to get past Punjab here.
