KKR vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction – May 8, 2023

KKR vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Punjab Kings on 8th May at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata from 7:30 PM IST on Monday.

There was a satisfying payback for KKR vs SRH after the run-fest beating they suffered at Eden Gardens. Captain Markram and the hot-handed Klaasen took on the mending job and did it very effectively after losing the top 4 within the first seven overs.

However, KKR wasn’t ready to give up. Varun Chakravarthy was only inserted after Klaasen left, and the strategy worked well when he gave up 12 off his first over. For KKR, the season has only recently begun to improve a little, but winning consecutive games would still be necessary to get to the playoffs.

While bowling first against Punjab, Mumbai leaked 214. But their batting has once more contributed. Punjab was simply never given any opportunities thanks to the 116 runs from 9.1 overs between SKY and Kishan. Bowlers from Punjab were dispatched on a trip. It is shown by Arshdeep’s 66 in 3.5 overs. Jitesh and Livingstone had already shown off some incredible hitting abilities. But regrettably, it was overshadowed by some SKY masterclass that was harsh.

Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Punjab Kings Match Prediction

Although as per IPL standings PBKS is placed above KKR and seems to be a better squad at the moment, one cannot neglect the fact that Eden Gardens is still the den of the Knights.

Spinners have the advantage here and KKR possesses the best of the spinners that the tournament has. Punjab does have quality hard hitters but since it is Eden KKR seems to be a favorite here.

Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to win Match 53 of IPL 2023.
