PBKS Vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: Grand League Tips For IPL 2023 – 1st April

PBKS vs KOL Dream11: Punjab Kings began their 2023 IPL journey with a new coach and a new captain with Bayliss and Dhawan taking on the respective roles to take Punjab towards their maiden IPL title. Punjab Kings splashed 18.5 cr to buy Sam Curran who becomes the most expensive player in the history of the IPL. Along with Dhawan and Curran, Livingstone, and Rabada will be the key to Punjab’s success and their form can play a key role.

Kolata Knight Riders suffered a major setback when Shreyas Iyer was ruled out due to injury, leaving a huge hole in the team. Nitish Rana, who has been in good form as captain in domestic matches, is expected to take over. The Kolkata bowling looked weak on paper, with either Ferguson or Southey leading Umesh Yadav’s attack. Sunil Narine is still their main weapon. They seem to have a good lineup with the addition of Shardul Thakur meaning they can bat deep. On that note, let’s look at the PBKS vs KOL Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Prediction.
