Kolkata Knight Riders will host Punjab Kings in the reverse fixture to be played in Eden Gardens, Kolkata on 8 May 2023 in the IPL 2023.
It promises to be an exciting battle on a brilliant batting pitch in Kolkata. Punjab Kings posted a massive total against Mumbai Indians while Kolkata Knight Riders would look to make use of the conditions at their home venue.
Here we look at the 3 Players Who Could Score the Most Runs Between PBKS and KKR
- Liam Livingstone
Liam Livingstone came to the party in the previous match against Mumbai Indians. He looked in sensational touch putting enough pressure on opponent bowlers with explosive batting.
Livingstone made the batting look easy and took on the inexperience Mumbai Indians bowling line-up. He remained not out on 82 of 42 deliveries helping Punjab Kings post a big total.
He will look to provide another excellent batting display for Punjab Kings to help them stay afloat in the tournament against Kolkata Knight Riders.
- Jason Roy
Jason Roy had a disappointing outing in the previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He was dismissed without opening his account.
Roy is an excellent attacking batter that would love to attack in the first six overs and make life tougher for the opponent bowlers. His role is making life tougher for Punjab Kings bowling up line up on a brilliant batting pitch in Kolkata.
If Jason Roy can provide an aggressive start, then Kolkata Knight Riders has a great chance to win the match and keep their hopes alive of reaching the playoffs stage.
- Jitesh Sharma
Jitesh Sharma has been in sensational touch with some brilliant innings coming lower down the order. He toyed with Mumbai Indians smashing them to all parks of the ground with unbeaten 49 off 29 balls and helped them to post a massive total.
Jitesh would be looking for another brilliant knock against Kolkata Knight Riders and showcase their talent with his attacking style of play.
Coming lower down the order, Jitesh Sharma can provide the impetus depending upon the situation and help Punjab Kings win the match.
