IPL 2023: How to watch PBKS vs KKR match?
Punjab Kings is all set to open their campaign in the 16th Indian Premier League (IPL) with a home fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders. The highly anticipated encounter is slated to be held at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Both teams have appointed a fresh face as their captain in the IPL 2023. Veteran India opener Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Punjab Kings, while Nitish Rana has replaced injured Shreyas Iyer as the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders.
The Punjab unit has also hired the service of World Cup-winning coach Trevor Bayliss. Kolkata, on the other hand, will play under the guidance of Chadrakant Pandit, whom Dinesh Karthik has labelled as the “Alex Ferguson of the Indian domestic cricket.” Punjab Kings are still awaiting their maiden IPL trophy and will aim to complete the dream this season. Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders, a two-time champions, tasted success for the last time in 2014, when the then Gautam Gambhir-led side overcame Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) in the final.
Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have played 30 matches against each other in the previous IPL seasons. KKR are holding a better-winning record with 20 victories, while PBKS have won just 10 games. The two teams squared off once in the IPL 2022 and Kolkata clinched a 6-wicket win in the fixture.
The weather at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali is predicted to be cloudy on 1 April. Hence, there is a possibility that rain can play a spoilsport during the IPL match between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. The wind speed is expected to be around 10-17 km/h during the 20-over game.
