IPL 2023: Key Records That Could Be Broken In The Match Between PBKS vs KKR
IPL 2023

In Game 2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Punjab Kings (PBKS) will play against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). On April 1, the eagerly anticipated match will take place at Mohali’s IS Bindra Stadium, home of the Punjab Cricket Association.

Before the 2023 IPL auction, PBKS let go of Mayank Agarwal, and Shikhar Dhawan was chosen as their new captain. The team would like to break its eight-year playoff drought under Dhawan’s captaincy this time around.

When Shreyas Iyer was diagnosed with a season-long injury, KKR suffered a severe setback before the competition. The team revealed on Monday (March 27) that Nitish Rana will lead the team in Iyer’s absence.

Both teams will have the opportunity to break numerous records in today’s match.

On that note, let’s look at three records that are about to be broken in the PBKS vs KKR match:

Arshdeep Singh is an Indian bowler to keep an eye on this season. Following a successful IPL 2022, the left-arm pacer received a call-up to the national team and seized the chance.

  • He will be eager to make an impression once more. Arshdeep, 24, will reach 100 T20 wickets if he manages to take three wickets today against KKR.

Arshdeep has already eliminated 97 T20 opponents in 77 games, with an average score of 22 points and a cost per kill of 8 points.

Andre Russell, a devoted member of the Kolkata franchise over the years, could reach a significant milestone in the upcoming match against Punjab.

  • Russell is currently KKR’s third-highest run-getter in the team’s history with 1,977 IPL runs at a strike rate of 179.

After Gautam Gambhir (3,035) and Robin Uthappa (2,439), he is only 23 runs shy of becoming the third player to reach 2,000 runs for KKR.

When he takes the field on Saturday, renowned Indian pacer Umesh Yadav will be just inches away from breaking a fantastic personal record.

  • Yadav has taken 33 wickets against the team since playing his first game against Punjab in 2013. This is a bowler’s joint-highest number of wickets against one specific IPL franchise.
